One million solar panels are due to be installed at seven new solar parks in Angola – hitting a major milestone in the country’s transition to clean, renewable energy. Sweden’s EPC Alliance set the stage for progress with a packaged solution combining 15 suppliers with comprehensive export credit financing.
Svensk Exportkredit (SEK) is financing one of Turkey’s highest priority infrastructure projects, an electrified railway. It creates new business for Swedish export companies that deliver everything from signal and telecommunication systems to engineering know-how and production technology for high-speed rail.
Infrastructure is crucial to economic growth and quality of life for citizens, since better roads allow more people to participate in the economy and reduce congestion and pollution. Ghana’s Ministry of Roads has initiated several road upgrade projects, two of which are financed by EKN and The Swedish Export Credit Corporation (SEK): “Streets of Accra” and “Streets of Tamale”, which entail surfacing of local roads and construction of drainage systems, with QGMI Group as chief EPC contractor.
