Infrastructure Partnership for African Development (iPAD) Rwanda Power & Infrastructure Investment Forum is due to be held Kigali in November, and Symbion Power will return as the exclusive diamond sponsor for the event.
The second edition of iPAD Rwanda slated for 5-6 November, 2015 will see more than 250 experts in the industry and stakeholders use the platform to showcase and share opportunities in Rwanda’s energy, infrastructure and mining sectors.
Most of the participants will come be private investors, project developers, consultants, technology and solution providers and financiers looking for opportunities in Rwanda’s energy, infrastructure and mining sectors.
Symbion Power, an international power developer of electrical infrastructure projects will be the diamond sponsor of the event, which is organised by Spintelligent, a leading Cape Town-based trade exhibition and conference organiser.
Symbion Power was last year awarded a 50 Megawatt Independent Power Production (IPP) gas to power project using methane gas from Lake Kivu in Rwanda.
Symbion Power’s CEO Paul Hinks says that the forum will enable investors to learn from Rwanda and its existing opportunities in the energy sector of which Symbion Power is not committed to developing to the fullest.
“We are committed to being a long-term partner and delivering electricity to Rwanda and to help de-risk Lake Kivu by safely extracting the methane gas that continues to build up in its depths and may be used to generate power ”, Hinks said.
