BIOKALA passes a major milestone in the BIOVEA project

On December 9th, 2019, Biokala, a subsidiary of SIFCA signed, with its partners EDF and Meridiam, a concession contract for the largest biomass factory in West Africa. A major milestone that should allow then to begin the construction work mid-2020, and to put the factory in service by mid-2023.
Located in the region of Aboisso, 100 km East of Abidjan, this complex will be the largest agricultural waist fuelled factory in West Africa, and will fulfill the electrical needs for around 1.7 million people per year.
Initiated in 2010 by Biokala, this new project is linked to the goals put in place by Côte d’Ivoire during the COP 21, and the commitment of SIFCA Group in favor of the environment. It will also create jobs and complementary incoms for around 12 000 farmers.
