French-based renewable energy company GreenYellow has been commissioned by Senico, a Senegalese agri-food production and marketing company, to build a 1.56MWp solar power facility at Senico’s Diamniadio branch. The solar project is expected to significantly reduce the company’s industrial emissions, lowering electricity costs while contributing to Senegal’s energy transition.

The new solar facility will comprise Senegal’s largest self-consumption solar photovoltaic plant and marks an important step in Diamniadio’s journey to become an ecological city. Senico has joined more companies that are moving towards green electricity solutions.

“GreenYellow is proud to support Senico in its ecological transition by providing it with environmentally friendly energy solutions that will enable it to produce and consume green electricity thanks to the largest self-consumption solar photovoltaic plant in Senegal,” stated Otmane Hajji, President of GreenYellow.

Additionally, the project adds to GreenYellow’s extensive renewable energy portfolio, further enabling the French company to increase its presence in African markets. With plans to sign more solar contracts in the industrial sector in Senegal, GreenYellow is driving Africa’s energy transition.
