Largest Renewable Energy Project In Sierra Leone.
Addax Bioenergy high efficiency cogeneration plant at greenfield bio-ethanol facility in Makeni means to be a game changer for the national energy mix providing a less carbon intensive energy source.
The cogeneration plant supplied by biomass residues composed of bagasse from sugar cane and trash features a 32 MW generator is installed to produce electricity for export to the national grid, therefore reducing CO2 emissions from fossil fuel intensive grid power generation units. Makeni cogeneration project is expected to amount 20% of the energy mix of the country. As part of the project’s Social and Environmental Management Programme, Addax has also created a Farmer Development Programme, an agricultural support unit with dedicated staff and mechanized equipment, which will enable about 2,000 local farmers to improve productivity of food crops.
