The MoU was signed back on 1 February 2019, with the proposed installation expected to be developed near N'Djamena, the capital of Chad.

The UAE has started to develop quite a foothold in Chad, as UAE-based Almaden Emirates Fortune Power signed off on an agreement with the Chadian government back in July 2018 to develop a PV project with a generation capacity between 200-400MW.

A consortium including InfraCo Africa and Smart Energies International signed a 25-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Chad’s national utility La Société Nationale d’Electricité (SNE) for a 60MW solar project in August.
