Site Visit of the President of Mauritius at Omnihydro in Rwanda

H.E. Mr Prithvirajsing Roopun, GCSK, President of the Republic of Mauritius and his spouse, Mrs Sayukta Roopun, visited the Omnihydro Power Plant, situated in the district of Nyamagabe in the south of Rwanda on Saturday 6th April 2024.

The Mauritian delegation, accompanied by Hon. Dr Jimmy Gasore, the Rwandan Minister of Infrastructure, and other high representatives from the Government of Rwanda and the District of Nyamagabe were welcomed on site by Mr Kevin Padiachy, Head of Africa Desk at Omnicane and Mr Kris Gahiga Managing Director of Omnihydro.

It is with much pleasure that I have visited the flagship project initiated by Omnicane Ltd through its subsidiary Omnihydro Ltd in Nyamagabe, Rwanda. This plant is a state of the art, clean and bio-energy project in line with the environment needs of our planet. It is also in synchronisation with the energy transition of Rwanda and the ambition of Mauritius to enhance its trade links and collaboration with like-minded African countries and thus contribute towards the economic advancement of the continent. It is my earnest wish that this project can inspire other African business entities to partner and bring Africa to new heights. I wish Omnicane Ltd which has over decades been a pioneer in many sectors, the very best and hope that it will continue to expand beyond the shores of the Republic of Mauritius”, declared H.E. Mr Prithvirajsing Roopun, after the visit of the power plant.

On his side, Hon. Dr Jimmy Gasore stated the following: “I greatly appreciated the work done by Omnihydro for successful implementation and operation of this power plant that contributes to the vision of our country in terms of energy. We believe this is only the beginning of further partnership in the energy sector.

For recall, the Omnihydro Power Plant was jointly inaugurated by the Hon. Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, Prime Minister of Mauritius and Hon. Édouard Ngirente, Prime Minister of Rwanda on Sunday 26 June 2022.

It is noted that the President of the Republic and his spouse are currently in Rwanda to attend the 30th commemoration of the genocide.
