Improve access to reliable and affordable electricity in Madagascar
BETC Nanala, a Malagasy SME, has invested in the creation of an isolated distribution network supplied by two mini hydroelectric plants.
Located around Alaotra Lake (around 200 km north-east of Antananarivo), the 1500 kW and 700 kW power plants are connected to an isolated medium voltage network of 100 km serving low-voltage networks located in 12 rural municipalities. The project improves access to electricity for 177,000 beneficiaries i.e. 29,500 households, schools, health centers, agricultural producers, rural entrepreneurs and public services. It also helps to reduce fossil fuels dependence.
