Türkiye's Karpowership, a floating power plant owned by Karadeniz Holding, resumed electricity generation in the capital of Guinea-Bissau on Wednesday afternoon after resolving a payment dispute with the African country, the company announced on Thursday.
The country’s Economy Minister, Suleimane Seidi, said Wednesday that $6 million was paid by the Electricity and Water Company of Guinea-Bissau out of its arrears of $15 million.
Karpowership said electricity supply to Guinea-Bissau had been halted for 1.5 days and resumed on Wednesday afternoon.
Karpowership, a Turkish builder, operator, and owner of a fleet of powerships, started operating in Guinea-Bissau in 2019 and has been supplying 100% of Guinea-Bissau’s total electricity needs.
