MAN Energy Solutions will provide two 9L51/60 engines to a new power plant in the Gambian city of Brikama as part of a wider bid to stabilise energy supply in the African nation.

The facility is owned by National Water & Electricity Company (NAWEC) and will produce 18MW of electrical output per annum.

“As in many African countries, a reliable energy supply is one of the most urgent challenges in Gambia,” said Waldemar Wiesner, head of region MEA power plant sales at MAN Energy Solutions.

“Only just under half the population has a reliable access to electricity.

“With the power plant in Brikama, we are now increasing the country’s generation capacity by roughly 20%.”
