Norwegian Scatec Solar to Build 350 MW of Solar Power in Africa

“Joining forces with IFC InfraVentures allows us to combine Scatec Solar’s know-how in photovoltaic development, installation and operations with IFC’s expertise in financing and working with governments in a region where limited supply of electricity is one of the major challenges for growth. We believe that this partnership will be of great value to the countries we work in by reducing the time required from project development to power generation.” said Raymond Carlsen, CEO of Scatec Solar.
