Themis has been responsible for developing and financing some of Africa’s most significant infrastructure and power projects over the last decade. The company is actively developing circa 400 MW across the African continent, including the 44MW Singrobo hydro project in Côte d’Ivoire, and is targeting the development of more than 1 gigawatt of gas-fired and renewable power generation projects in the medium term.
“Despite increased competition, the number of projects reaching closing is still largely below the needs of the continent, and this new venture of the Africa Power Investment Platform for the development of energy projects in Africa, is well positioned to fill the gap,” said Tas Anvaripour.
Nigeria currently has 4,000 MW of operational capacity, compared to 13,400 MW of installed capacity and 15,000 MW of demand.
