Uganda – Ground-mounted power plant / tracker – 10 MW

The project

The BUFULUBI solar power plant is a flagship project as it cements Tryba Energy’s expertise in the development of large complex projects in an international context. It would take Tryba Energy almost 5 years of development to commission this solar power plant, located in the village of Bufulubi in the Busoga Kingdom of Uganda.

In addition to development of the project, Tryba Energy successfully rose to the technical challenge of using an innovative tracker system. This solution consists of tracking the daily path of the sun to increase the overall efficiency. Using this technology is all the more justified by the power plant’s geographical location at the equator. The Bufulubi site is currently the largest tracker solar power plant in East Africa.  Tryba Energy is also delighted to have been able to contribute to local economic development. Its construction provided an opportunity to hire several hundred local workers. It is also a source of employment now it is operating.

Always committed to its social and environmental values, the project has allowed for the renovation of various infrastructures, a well and a school, and the planting of several thousand trees.
