Supplying renewable energy to the region

We produce electricity from renewables and coal. This energy powers our factories and is exported to the national grids. We own and operate three power plants in Mauritius and Tanzania and export an average of 340 GWh to the grid every year. We are also planning to develop a more efficient 2x35 MW power plant in Mauritius to replace our existing facility.

How We Work

We are cogeneration pioneers in Mauritius. Alteo’s Energy cluster grew out of our use of bagasse, a by-product of our cane-crushing operations, to power Alteo’s sugar milling and refining activities.

  • Our Energy cluster is increasingly specialising in renewable energy and replacing fossil fuels such as coal with cane trash and bagasse.
  • We are investing in more efficient, technologically-advanced power plants to optimise how we produce energy and reduce our carbon footprint.
  • We are also exploring wind and solar power projects in each of the countries that we operate in.
