Jirama, the state-owned electric and water services company, has announced that the repair work of the three groups of the Andekaleka power plant is complete. This follows after the Andekaleka power plant caught alight in January 2022. In addition to the repair of the groups, a fourth G4 group is being installed to increase electricity production on the Interconnected Network of Antananarivo (RIA), which is currently at 78% complete. Currently, the technicians are working on installing a spherical type guard valve and the GIS connection of the G3 group to the G4 group. According to Jirama, the establishment of the G4 group will increase electricity production by adding an additional 33.2 MegaWatts (MW) into the RIA and increase the production of the Andekaleka power plant by 120MW. In addition, it will improve the supply of electricity by Jirama, reduce the cost of electricity production due to the exploitation of renewable energy sources, which will be less expensive and maintain the plant’s generators.
