This phase will benefit from financing of US$ 225 million from the World Bank divided among the three countries and the ECOWAS Commission which will ensure regional coordination. It is based on the construction of three-phase (30/0.4 kV or 33/0.4 kV) and single-phase (17.32/0.23 kV) distribution networks in areas located within a 100 km radius around the OMVG transformer substations in The Gambia (three-phase distribution networks only) and Guinea Bissau (three-phase and single-phase distribution networks) and the OMVS in Mali (three-phase and single-phase distribution networks). In the end, 500 rural localities will be electrified, and the populations will benefit from connection kits.

 

  1. The design, supply and construction section will be made of different lots with the following initial consistency:
