Where we are working

project-map
  • Mobilised US$2bn investment
  • Created 8,240 jobs
  • Benefiting 13m people

Over the last ten years we’ve received US$126 million in funding and have developed projects that mobilised US$2 billion of investment, from the private sector and from Development Finance Institutions (DFIs). This investment has provided new infrastructure for approximately 13 million people, improving living standards and powering economic growth. Our projects employ over 8,000 people either during construction or once new services are operational.

Over the next ten years we will do even more.

We are actively deepening our pipeline and growing our business, with the result that each year we commit support to more early-stage projects. The dependency between power and economic development is just one reason why power will continue to be a focus for us. However, we are also increasing our interest in water and marine transport: seeking innovative ways to incorporate water initiatives into power projects and so attract investment into frontier markets. We continue to focus on innovative or pioneering projects and will increase the volume of pilot projects we provide capital and support to, getting projects operational sooner and demonstrating their viability.

Tanzania: Redavia

Packaging up power for rural Tanzania

  • Containerised PV
  • US$5.7m
  • 130,000

Operational. Redavia Tanzania Asset Ltd is an innovative solar PV rental business that provides containerised off-grid power to businesses and communities in Tanzania. InfraCo Africa is providing the capital and support needed to rapidly scale up this business, with the intention of deploying 30 containers across rural Tanzania.

Mozambique: Pavua

Tapping the potential of water

  • 120MW
  • US$310m
  • 900,000

Under Active Development: This project will construct a dam and 120MW hydroelectric power plant on the Pungué River in Central Mozambique. Mozambique is vulnerable to climate change, experiencing frequent floods and droughts that coupled with power deficits are constraining its economic development. This project will tap into the country’s significant hydro potential to generate clean power and dampen fluctuations in downstream river flows.

Chad: Djermaya Solar

Lighting the way for renewables in Chad

  • 60MW
  • TBC
  • 30,000

Under Active Development. The Djermaya Solar project will develop 60MW of solar PV in two phases, gradually integrating renewable power into Chad’s national grid. By establishing a cross-sector Task-Force, this project is drawing on both public and private sector expertise to rapidly develop a solution that is bankable and aligned with the Government of Chad’s aspirations.

Ethiopia: Corbetti

Green growth powered by the earth's core

  • 70MW
  • US$360m
  • 8,000,000

Under Active Development. The Corbetti project will initially develop up to 70MW of geothermal power before gradually mobilising a further US$2billion in foreign direct investment to increase installed capacity to 500MW.  This pioneering project will be situated on a greenfield site, prove a new geothermal resource and be not only the first geothermal IPP in Ethiopia but also only the second in sub-Saharan Africa.

Zambia: Western Power

Harnessing the power of waterfalls

  • 60MW
  • US$320m
  • 600,000

Under Active Development. The Western Power Company will develop a 60MW run-of-river hydropower plant in Zambia’s Western Province: harnessing the untapped potential of the Zambezi River’s waterfalls to deliver clean, sustainable power. The project will not only provide power to the national grid, helping to alleviate economically crippling power deficits, but also directly and positively impact families living in the surrounding area through a pioneering benefit-sharing programme.

Uganda: Kalangala Infrastructure Services

Making connections for a brighter future

  • Water
  • Marine transport
  • Road
  • 1.6MW solar diesel
  • US$49m
  • 35,000

Operational. KIS is a pioneering mixed utility company that: operates two modern roll-on roll-off ferries; purifies and distributes clean water; provides affordable solar power; and has upgraded Bugala Island’s 66km main road.

Zambia: Chanyanya

Working in partnership to grow Zambia’s future

  • Irrigation
  • US$3m
  • >1,000

Under Active Development. An innovative pilot, the Chanyanya project installed the bulk water infrastructure required to provide infield irrigation to 148 hectares of land leased from a smallholder’s cooperative, the project farms this irrigated land and also provides irrigated market garden plots to local smallholders.

Ghana: Cenpower

From concept to commercial reality

  • Gas power
  • US$903m
  • >8,250,000

Under Construction. Fully Exited. Cenpower Generation Ltd (Cenpower) will construct and operate an efficient 350MW combined-cycle gas turbine plant, the first greenfield, project-financed IPP in Ghana.

Cape Verde: Cabeólica

Powering a sustainable future for Cape Verde

  • Wind Power
  • €60.9m
  • 360,000

Operational. Fully Exited. Cabeólica is a groundbreaking project, that constructed 30 wind turbines across four of Cape Verde’s islands and established Cabeólica SA as the first Public Private Partnershp (PPP) to deliver commercial scale wind power in sub-Saharan Africa. Today, Cabeólica has an installed capacity of 25.5MW and supplies 25% of the electricity consumed in Cape Verde.
