Efacec has been contracted by Guinea Bissau’s public company Eletricidade e Águas da Guiné-Bissau (EAGB) to construct electricity infrastructure that is expected to double the capital Bor’s current capacity.
The project will involve the construction of two substations with 30 by 10 kV capacity in the Bor and Bra regions; and a 6.2 km long line with a 63kV capacity to link the new thermal power stations.
The infrastructure is a precondition for the execution of the second module from the country’s electrical project that includes the construction of a 100MW capacity power plant in Bor.
Efacec produces power transmission and distribution products including adapters, services, high and medium voltage switchgear and automation gear for the Energy, Environmental, Industry and Railway sectors.
The company which also develops an energy charging system for Electrical Mobility has strong international presence in strategic markets including Southern Africa.
The Portuguese power solutions company was recently chosen to implement the project of engineering, supply, supervision and commissioning of three 200Kv substations on a turn-key basis in Rwanda.
The infrastructure it will build in Guinea Bissau will also enable the country provide electricity to a broader group of the population, raise their living standards and contribute to their socio-economic development.
