SUCCESSFUL SYNCHRONIZATION OF THE WAPP POWER GRID – A DECISIVE STEP TOWARD REGIONAL ELECTRICITY INTEGRATION
The West African Power Pool (WAPP) has recently reached a significant milestone in the realization of its mandate to interconnect the power transmission networks of ECOWAS member states and create a unified regional electricity market.
WAPP is pleased to announce the successful permanent synchronization of the power grids of twelve West African countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Togo.
From now on, the power grids of these countries will operate as a single synchronous network, under the supervision of the WAPP Information and Coordination Centre (ICC) and the national control centers of these countries.
