Turkey will increase its electricity supply to Sudan from 150 to 250 Megawatt, according to a statement by the Sudanese Oil and Energy Ministry on Thursday.
The pledge of the additional 100 megawatts comes amid a deep shortage of electricity supply in Sudan last summer that led to blackouts in the country and disruptions in manufacturing.
The ministry confirmed that the additional supply would begin from May, to be provided by the Karadeniz Powership company.
“Sudan and Turkey have agreed to increase the power supply by the battleship in the Red Sea from 150 megawatts to 250 megawatts,” the statement read.
Sudan suffers a continuous shortage of power supply and receives electricity from Ethiopia and Egypt.
