Overall Goal and Objectives
Ensure an unimpeded transit of low cost electricity supply in the CLSG countries through a level playing field mechanism between sellers and buyers, supported by appropriate infrastructure. As part of meeting this overall goal, we have several objectives:
To construct the 1,349 km of 225kV double circuit overhead transmission line and 11 substations interconnecting the CLSG countries within 3 years.
To facilitate the trading of stable and reliable electricity in an effective and efficient manner thereby creating value for the key players in the electricity value chain; reducing the cost and increasing the supply and reliability of electricity for buyers and increasing the export capacity of Cote D’Ivoire by 2018.
To ensure and maintain the commercial viability of the company: generating adequate returns on investment for our shareholders, and meeting our debt obligations as they fall due, both as a commercial enterprise and as a development project within 10 years.
