The numerous studies and projects that EDF has conducted in Africa have provided the Group with deep knowledge of the continent's electricity installations.
EDF has created many masterplans for African countries: the Moroccan production-transmission masterplan until 2025 and many distribution masterplans in Morocco and Burkina Faso.
The Group has designed the Bobo-Dioulasso-Ouagadougou interconnection (360 km of overhead lines, 7 substations) in Burkina Faso and has made a feasibility study for the Ghana-Burkina-Mali interconnection.
EDF has also been in charge of the supervision of work conducted on the Information and Coordination Centre for the transmission systems linking the 14 countries of the West African Power Pool (WAPP).
LINES, POSTS, DISPATCHERS
Supervision of lines, posts and of the national dispatcher of Communauté Electrique du Bénin (CEB) have been given to EDF. The national Senegalese dispatcher and the feasibility study for the regional utility load dispatcher for transmission in the Nile Delta have been also realised by EDF.
