5.9 MW cutting-edge wind and solar microgrid – The Hybrid Power Plant awarded by NECSOM (National Electric Corporation of Somalia) involves the engineering, supply and installation of a renewable and storage turnkey solution that allows the reduction of diesel consumption by more than 2,000 litres per day, and reduces the electricity bills by 17%. The Hybrid Power Plant serves a 3.5MW load, and is currently under extension with 750kW of wind energy, covering with renewables and storage more than 25% of the energy need of Garowe and then saving more than 1.1million liters of fuel.
Located in North-East of Somalia, the town is the administrative capital of the autonomous Puntland region and a fast-growing city, which has also evolved into a local media and cultural hub.
