In Senegal, local companies still have a negligible share in the implementation of electrical projects. To improve this situation, they met in a crucible to advocate for better local integration.
In Senegal, the providers of Senelec, the national power company, have formed a network. They are thus 8,000 entities approved by Senelec, determined to participate in the emergence of the country through their field of activity.
“Today, we found it useful to get together around the essentials, and to work to strengthen our working conditions to pull up our emergence,” said Birima Fall, coordinator of the national collective of Senelec-approved providers. This new collective will work to convince the government to make administrative procedures more flexible in order to allow better involvement of local actors.
This win-win partnership, established with Senelec, will contribute to the preservation and development of the electric power sector in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. With mostly public capital, Senelec is the limited company that produces, transports, distributes and sells electric power in Senegal.
