The first large-scale solar power plant in Mauritania

The Greenfield 50 MW solar power plant near Nouakchott, Mauritania’s capital city was developed by Eiffage (RMT/Clemessy) and commissioned in 2018.

National Electricity Company of Mauritania (SOMELEC)’s Toujounine large-scale solar farm substitutes grid electricity by clean and renewable energy and cutting down GHG emissions from baseline fossil fuel intensive grid mix (mostly gasoil/fuel oil). It serves as a paving example of renewable energy development in Mauritania, hosting training of interns from ‘Ecole des Métiers’ as well as regular on-site visits for Nouakchott university’s renewable energy specialty students.
