The Taiba N’Diaye wind farm in west Africa will provide a 15% increase in electricity generation capacity for the country, providing power for over 2 million people. Built near the Taiba N’Diaye community, the wind farm created 600 employment opportunities during the peak of its construction phase.

The project reached financial close in July 2018 and construction commenced with Vestas, supplying 46 of its 3.45 MW turbines, and contracted for the EPC works. In February 2020, the first phase of the wind farm, 50 MW was officially inaugurated by the Senegalese Head of State, His Excellency Macky Sall. In 2021, the project reached full commercial operation.
