THE FIRST SOLAR PV FARM TUNNEL IN SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA

Riccofortezza Nigeria Limited are the developers, co-EPC, and O&M contract for the 2016 award of the Light Up Kwara Project by the Kwara state government. This is the concept of our innovative idea brought to reality. The SFT as we called it is the first of it kind in Africa, and will be used to power over 2000 previously moribund highway lighting infrastructures, which we will retrofit with LED lampheads. See videos below for the progress of our work on this ground-breaking innovation so far. Ilorin, the capital city of Kwara State is witnessing a transformation due to our solar project.

Winners of Light Up Kwara Solar Project 2016. Riccofortezza Nigeria Limited (RICCOSOLAR) won, developed, and is collaboratively constructing the first-of-a kind on-road mini-grid system (or solar PV farm tunnel) in Nigeria and the West Africa region.

The three solar farm tunnels has a total of about 400km power generation capacity and incorporates a containerized lithium ion-battery storage system, used to supply clean electricity to retrofitted highway/street lighting infrastructures covering a total of 25 km. All previously moribund street lighting poles were retrofitted with LED lampheads. Want this in your state or country, contact us today.
