Installation of two 80m3 solar cold rooms in Mopti, Mali

To complete the work on the new fishing port of Mopti on the Niger River, our partner DOLO Froid in Bamako is installing two solar cold rooms that will be operated by fishmonger organisations (wholesalers who buy fish products locally and ship them to fish merchants in the capital Bamako).

These cold rooms have a capacity of 80m3 and are designed to refrigerate 850kg/day of fish. They are powered by 10kWp solar plants with a 400V three-phase energy conversion. This project is part of the EU’s “PRORESA” programme (Programme de renforcement de la sécurité alimentaire au Mali) implemented by ENABEL, the Belgian development agency.
