Alteo Energy Ltd (AEL) operates a bagasse and coal power plant at Union Flacq in Mauritius.
The company supplies steam and electricity to Alteo’s sugar mill and refinery and exports an average of 160 GWh to the national grid every year.
It generates more than half of its production from bagasse, a sugar cane by-product that is a renewable source of energy.
AEL is also planning to develop a more efficient 2x35 MW power plant in Mauritius to replace its existing facility. Over 50% of this energy will be generated from bagasse and cane trash, both of which are renewable sources of energy. The plant’s equipment will allow us to reduce our coal consumption by 25% and will meet stringent international environmental standards.
Exported annually to the national grid
