Monday, September 2, 2019 – Hundreds of transmission towers have been erected within the Man to Yekepa corridor and stringing of the line is currently ongoing by EPC contractors, Bouygues.

Also, more new towers are being erected in Man to Danane in Cote d’Ivoire and towards the Liberian borders. This indicates the CLSG interconnection project is on course to deliver affordable and reliable electricity to the people in the four beneficiary countries – Cote d’Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea.

The substation in Man, Cote d’Ivoire is under construction as activities ranging from excavation, digging of foundations, etc are being fast tracked by EPC contractors. Senior field officers of the EPC contractors including Bouygues, KEC and NR Electrics said they are expediting construction activities to meet the December 2019 delivery schedule.

The landmark cross-border project involving the construction of a transmission line of over 1,300km aims to interconnect the CLSG countries’ energy systems into the West Africa Power Pool (WAPP) regional energy network.

The latest milestone is a result of TRANSCO CLSG Management’s unyielding position on meeting the project implementation timeline. The Acceleration Plan, launched by TRANSCO CLSG to accelerate the implementation of the project is making inroads as EPC contractors are mobilized on sites as construction activities continue unabated.

Management forecasts a partial commissioning of the line in December 2019 and TRANSCO CLSG is making sure all construction activities that would have been performed sequentially, as per the original schedule, are now performed in parallel.
