Renewable power generation company Lekela has signed a grant agreement with the United States International Development Finance Corporation to fund a feasibility study for an extension to the Parc Eolien Taiba N’Diaye wind farm in Senegal. With a target capacity of 100MW, the expansion would greatly increase the output of the 158.7MW wind farm. It will also contribute significantly towards Senegal meeting its renewable energy targets.The feasibility study, which is expected to be completed within 15 months, will be jointly financed by Lekela and DFC. The study covers an area west of the existing wind farm and will consist of a wind measurement campaign, a network study, an environmental impact study and other on-site surveys.Now in operations, PETN is West Africa’s largest wind farm, delivering 158.7MW of clean, renewable wind power to over 2 million people in Senegal. It consists of 46 Vestas wind turbines that provide clean energy to Senegal’s grid, creating a 15% uplift to Senegal’s generation capacity, and will continue to generate renewable electricity for at least two decades.
