The growth of the energy sector in South Sudan is on course as both the government and private sectors development its growth, Dr. Philip Waden, the Manager for Power Projects at Trinity Energy Ltd said.
The oil-rich country is yet underdeveloped in most sector, especially in the infrastructure and power networks.
While the government is developing a huge solar project that will help reduce power tariffs in the capital Juba, “the local companies should also help to make sure the government succeeds in this area” by shouldering the work with their development initiatives too, Waden told Juba Echo in an interview on June 29.
“If we make these things correct, then we will see the benefits in this sector,” he said.
Trinity Energy is a South Sudanese company that provides fuel imports for South Sudan.
It is also planning to venture into the production of crude oil and refinery.
The company also has plans to ensure development of solar “clean energy” in the country.
“We need to make sure we have power accessibility in the country,” Waden said.
“We need to provide power which is affordable to our citizens.”
Waden said Trinity Energy also has plans to increase import and storage of fuel in the country “by increasing the capacity of storage depots” it has especially one in Nesitu outside Juba.
“When we look into the oil and gas, Trinity also wants to participate in that.”
