Ten Merina Ndakhar SA

Senegal Infrastructure

The Ten Merina project consists of the design, construction, financing, operation and the maintenance of a 29.5 MWc solar power plant. Ten Merina Ndakhar SA will also be in charge of the construction of a 3-km transmission line on behalf of the client Senelec. The project will be located near Mbouky, approximately 145 km from Dakar. Tenergie, the initial developer of the project, signed a 25-year PPA with SENELEC, the Senegalese electricity utility at the end of December 2013. Meridiam partnered with Eiffage, joining the project as majority shareholder, so as to finalize the development phase and raise the financing required for financial close.

We are invested in Ten Merina Ndakhar SA through Meridiam Infrastructure Africa Fund, which is managed by Meridiam. For further information on the fund, the fund manager, and the expected impact of the fund’s investment, click here.
