(Business in Cameroon) - The Eranove group plans to build a 315 MW thermal plant in Limbé in South-West Cameroon. This was revealed in a call for expressions of interest made by the company on March 5, 2015 to recruit an engineering and research firm to evaluate the project.
An independent water and electricity production company with 1.22 million customers in Africa in the electricity sector and 1.35 million water consumers, Eranove is controlled by the Emerging Capital Partners investment fund (57%), its primary shareholder. Well established in West Africa, particularly in Côte d’Ivoire by way of four companies (Sodeci, CIE, Awale and Ciprel), Eranove has also been present in Senegal since 1996 via its Senegalese company (SDE).
In Central Africa, Eranove has been present in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) since 2012, thanks to a service contract for the administrative, financial and technical management of the DRC’s public water distribution company, Regideso.
