West African Power Pool (WAPP) - Information and Coordination Centre (ICC)

By supporting the construction of the WAPP Information and Coordination Centre (ICC), the project will provide ECOWAS the means to effectively coordinate data exchange with other Control Area Centres (CACs). It will enhance a reliable and secure operation of the Interconnected Power Systems.
The ICC Project involves the construction and equipping of the ICC building in Calavi, Republic of Benin.
