Title: NTPC to help Mali develop 500 MW solar park
Date:25 June 2020

NTPC Ltd will help Mali develop a 500 MW solar power park, a statement by the state-owned power generator said on 25 June 2020. India’s largest power generation utility has been awarded the project management consultancy contract by the West African nation, making it the second country after Togo to do so.
