Elaboration of Codified Nomenclature for the Power Sector in Burkina Faso
NCG and Pconsult formed a joint venture to elaborate a codified nomenclature for the country's power sector. The work concerned all actors in the sector from Ministry of Energy and its Directorate for Energy, SONABEL and FDE as well as the actors in rural electrification.

As part of the job a collection of standards for low-cost electrification used or foreseen in Burkina Faso should be elaborated and this part was particularly trusted with Pconsult who has been one of the driving forces in the low-cost initiatives in Burkina since 1999. The output was presented during a two-day workshop in Ouagadougou

Peri-urban Electrification, Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso
Pconsult was engaged by the Danish embassy in Ouagadougou to assist in implementing a peri-urban electrification project in Ouagadougou. The project comprises special delivery mechanisms such as readyboards and flat rate meters. These meters allow for consuming a pre-programmed amoutn of energy per hour and thus induce the users to save energy. This is contrary to the load limitors often used for this purpose, that allow the consumers to consume 24h/24 as long as the limit is not surpassed.

Danish Embassy, 2003 - ongoing


Rural electrification, Benin
Pconsult was engaged to assist in setting up a feasibility study for electrifying 154 towns and villages in Benin. The method of supply included traditional three-phase supplies, single-phase supply derived from three-phase lines as well as single- and three-phase supplies form HV-lines' shield wires.

World Bank, 2003-2004


Urban and Peri-urban Electrification in Maputo, Mozambique
Pconsult was engaged by Danida to define and direct projects for strengthening the city's 66 and 11 kV networks as well as projects aiming of supplying the poorer segment of the urban populations of Maputo. The project further comprises a regional control centre, enabling the national utility, EdM, to dispatch loads in the capital, but also to control the influx of energy from the neighbouring countries, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Danida, 2003 - 2004


Energy Sector Programme support, Mozambique
The governments of Denmark and Mozambique have agreed to establish an energy sector programme for the period 2002 - 2007.
Pconsult assisted in planning the programme and was responsible for the engineering part as well as the associated cost estimates.
The program comprises support to the national operator, EdM, in reinforcing the supply system to the capital, Maputo, to establishing a load dispatching centre for the southern part of the country as well as for rural electrification.
It further comprises pilot activities in low cost engineering in distribution and in power take-off from HV-transmission lines.
Cost-effective household connection inclusive of prefabricated installation in the form of readyboards are other elements.
The programme also includes decentralised, i.e. private or communal, rural electrification.

Decentralised Rural Electrification, Burkina Faso, Ghana and Mozambique
Danida is actively trying to find solutions to the electrification of smaller and remoter communities where the utilities normally would not sponsor the electrification. The concept is decentralised electrification meaning electrification by private entities such as cooperatives or individuals.
If done by the normal standards applied by the utilities, the electrification would be too costly. Hence, new standards are being developed and cost-based tariffs implemented.
Pconsult assists Danida in the development of new principles and the quality assurance of the consultant's work.
In Burkina Faso, electrification of a substantial number of villages is being implemented. In Ghana and Mozambique, decentralised rural electrification is part of the sector programmes.

Danida. 2001


Improvement of the Electrical Infrastructure in Ouagadougou
The Energy Sector Programme for Burkina Faso includes provisions for improving the capital's power system. Pconsult, together with SONABEL, has been selected by Danida to define and implement a project where the substation and two production units at the Kossodo site are integrated. The integration concerns the mechanical and electrical auxiliaries as well as a common control room. For one of the production units, the project comprises the conversion from DDO to HFO fuel.
The project comprises improvement of the environmental aspects of the production.
Finally, the project has a component enhancing the functions of the dispatching centre of the capital. This involves improved data acquisition and also installation of a non-real-time computer system.

Danida 2001


Energy Sector Program Support, Ghana
As part of the ongoing Danish involvement in the Ghanaian energy sector, Danida decided in 2000 to elaborate an Energy Sector Programme Support facility, ESPS. Pconsult assisted T-Consult in formulating the rural electrification component of the ESPS. The component included rural electrification by the utilities as well as demand driven electrification by private entities. Low cost concepts such as SWER were an integrated part of the solutions.

Danida 2001


Expansion of the Electrical Power system in the Ouahigouya Region, Burkina Faso.
In 1999 Danida financed a master plan covering 6 provinces to the north-west of the capital. The master plan covers production, transport and distribution of energy. It has later been decided between the Danish and the Burkinabè governments to implement the recommendations of the master plan. The objective is to improve living conditions and to promote the use of electricity for productive purposes.
Pconsult has been requested to assist Danida in formulating the terms of reference for the consultants tasks related to the project and to assist in selecting the consultant. The terms comprise specific recommendations in respect of innovative electrification technologies such as specially adapted low cost design and SWER systems. On the institutional side the project is equally innovative in promoting demand driven extension approaches and decentralised, private distribution ventures.
