The Project involves the construction and operation of an 80 megawatt (MW) photovoltaic (PV) plant which will be located about 5 km from the town (and state capital) of Dutse in
Jigawa State, Nigeria. The power plant consists of ground-mounted PV solar modules using either tracker or fixed tilt system configurations, a dedicated 132 kV transmission line which connects the plant to the Dutse substation located 3.66 km from the Project site, an onsite substation, an access road and internal road network, a storm water infrastructure and drainage system, and water supply infrastructure. The Project site is about 200 hectares and the construction of the transmission line and associated buffer area requires an additional 11 hectares of land.
