Impact

Oualidia hosts the tallest wind turbine in Africa.

The project is a business case of African excellence and innovation. It paves the way on other groundbreaking initiatives in the field of clean energy across the continent.

The plant was built through advanced technology transfer from industrialized countries.

The project was the first to introduce refurbished wind turbines in the country after they were fully renovated.

Innovent used the local workforce to build the plant.
