Portuguese-Guinean company to supply electricity to three areas in Guinea Bissau

21 November 2012

Power distribution company Electrobissau has signed an agreement with the Guinea Bissau transitional government to supply electricity to three areas in the north of the country, Luís Neves, one of the company’s partners told Portuguese news agency Lusa.

In an initial phase the agreement includes supplying electricity produced by diesel generators, to the populations of Bula, Canchungo and Cacheu, and Neves said that Canchungo would be the first town to receive electricity as it already had 30 percent of the equipment needed.

The agreement signed by the government and Electrobissau, a company owned by three Portuguese businesspeople and one Guinean, will be valid for 20 years. (macauhub)
