Project Objectives

The sectoral objective of the project is to improve the safety and efficiency of energy supply. More specifically, the project aims to improve the performance of the electricity transmission and distribution network. It aims to increase the transit capacity of transmission lines and reduce the network's technical loss rate by approximately 1.2 points, from 4.7% to 3.5%.


Specifically, the project will benefit ONE (National Electricity Board); subscribers in areas experiencing high voltage drops; new cities that will be connected to the network; industrial units; independent power producers which will have a reliable network to evacuate the output of their power plant; and tourist accommodation facilities.
