Based in Mauritius, CIGenCo a subsidiary of CIG was established with the objective of developing, structuring, investing in and overseeing the construction and operations of power generating assets, focussing primarily on Sub-Saharan Africa.

With the severe undersupply of electricity, which is further compounded by a relatively high economic growth rate, there are tremendous opportunities in the power sector throughout the continent. In addition, the African continent is blessed with an abundance of natural energy resources (renewable as well as fossil fuel) that vary according to the region.

Sub-Saharan Africa consists of a number of countries with a unique combination of resources, requirements, regulatory framework, social norms and practices. Accordingly, CIGenCo does not offer a one-size fits all energy solution, but instead offers solutions that take into consideration the available resources and the characteristic of the demand as well as the local regulatory structures and practices. In this regard, CIGenCo leverages the unique capabilities of the wider CIG group facilitating competitive advantages in the following areas:

  • General knowledge about the cultural and legal norms and practices on the continent
  • Environmental, social awareness and the commitment to improve quality of life
  • Knowledge of the African power sector (resources and requirements)
  • Extensive experience working in the power sector throughout the continent
  • Network of relationships with African stakeholders (utilities, ministers, consultants)
  • Technical knowledge and relationships with technology providers
  • Ability to work with a diverse group of financiers to get closure

Although remaining open to all technology, CIGenCo has placed special emphasis on partnering with developers in providing power solutions in the following areas:

  1. Small conventional IPPs and captive generation
  2. Cogeneration
  3. Renewables

Through CIG, CIGenCo has a broad range of knowledge and experience, and a solid network to successfully take these power projects from conceptualisation to operation.
