The General Manager and delegation traveled to Dakar, Senegal on August 30, 2017 to meet and discuss the CLSG and the OMVG interconnection projects, with the High Commissioner of OMVG, El Hadj Lansana Fofana.

Like the CLSG project, the development objective of the OMVG for Africa is to enable electricity trade between the Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, and Senegal. The project will expand the West African power pool (WAPP) transmission network.

In the courtesy meeting, Mr. Mohammed M. Sherif sought collaboration with the OMVG interconnection project. He acknowledged that both TRANSCO CLSG and OMVG are working towards the same goal to connect light to the lives of millions of citizens in the sub region, therefore the need to collaborate on the technical and procurement fronts is key.

In response, the High Commission of OMVG extoled his counterpart for the visit and for sharing updates related to the CLSG project implementation. He assured TRANSCO CLSG his company’s full cooperation in the process.

A technical team meeting on project implementation was held on Thursday, August 31, 2017 with the OMVG and TRANSCO CLSG project implementation units.

TRANSCO CLSG Director of PIU, Mr. Entienne Bailly, along with the Engineering Coordinator Erik Achi and the Senior Procurement and Contract Managament Specialist Mohamed Keita presented. Representative of the TRACTEBEL Belgium (Owner’s Engineer for TRANSCO CLSG) also attended the meeting.
