ARRIVAL OF INTERNATIONAL MASTER PROGRAM IN ENERGY AND GREEN HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGY (IMP-EGH) BATCH 2 STUDENTS FROM TOGO TO NIGER

From 30 April to 3 May 2024, in the evening, the students of the International Master in Energy and Green Hydrogen (IMP-EGH), batch 2 from Togo to Niger, arrived in Niger to complete their second semester in good conditions. A large delegation arrived at the Diori Hamani International Airport in Niamey, headed by Mr Mounkailla Moussa Saley, Interim Director of the IMP-EGH, Niger, and Ms Selasi Weto, Senior Executive Assistant Capacity Building Department    , to welcome the students from Togo. They all arrived safely on Nigerien land. A family photo was taken to immortalise the event before we headed to the brand new Green Hydrogen Complex, located at the ABDOU MOUMOUMI University. After arriving at the complex, we took them to the complex's new restaurant, to have their first dinner in Niger. After dinner, they were all installed in their different rooms, shared by the Interim Director, the DCB Senior Executive Assistant, and the head of the H2 laboratory.

BATCH 2 (IMP-EGH), STUDENTS’ MEETING WITH THE VICE CHANCELLOR OF ABDOU MOUMOUNI UNIVERSITY

On Saturday 4 May 2024, the students of batch 2 of the International Master's Programme on Energy and Green Hydrogen (IMP-EGH), were at the RECTORATE of the Abdou Moumouni University in Niamey to meet the Vice-Chancellor. The staff of the Master in Green Hydrogen accompanied them: the Interim Director, the Coordinator of Green Hydrogen, the responsible of Green Hydrogen laboratory, the ITT Manager of WASCAL DRP and the assistant of WASCAL DRP – CCE.

The meeting was opened at 11am in the conference room of the RECTORATE by the Vice Chancellor Prof. ADAMOU Rabani as Chairman of the session.

First of all, all the participants were introduced. The Chairman then gave the floor to the Interim Director and Coordinator of the IMP-EGH, who in turn presented the roadmap for the second semester to the students, then the timetable for the second session of the first semester, and read out the internal regulations of the Abdou Moumoumi University, as well as the New Green Hydrogen Complex.

After that, the V.C. took the floor and introduced Mr Abdoul Razak NIANDOU, the person in charge of the new Green Hydrogen Complex to the students.

The V.C. emphasised the University's internal regulations, on the strict observance of these guidelines by students, in order to avoid misbehaviour, fraud, etc.

The meeting closed with advice from the V.C. saying you should also work hard, you are ambassadors for Africa, you should succeed and you are the representatives of Africa everywhere in the world.

A Conference was organized at Abdou Moumouni University, in the new brand LIVING LAB ENERGY AND GREEN HYDROGEN, of WASCAL NIGER, 14th June 2024

TOPIC: Climate Change and Energy transition in Africa: challenges and opportunities for sustainable development.

The conference was presented by the imminent Prof. AROUNA DIEDHIOU, Research Director of the institute of Research for Sustainable Development (IRD), he was assisted by prof. EricC Ofosu Antwi a lecturer from university of Sunyani Ghana.

The conference started at 10:00 Am, as we know that, Climate Change is the leitmotiv of today challenges in all over the world, it is why Green Hydrogen, WASCAL’s students online were invited to this conference in order to learn more about this Climate Change to have opportunities to exploit, and implementing some activities in the future, the conference was ended at 12:00 Am.

After the conference, the moderator Ass. Prof. Mounkaila Moussa Saley gave in substance the aim of the conference in the different point stated in the conference, like data showing the high temperature which mean that there’s GLOBAL WARMING (bush fire), a lot of rain falls, drought etc.

For the Renewable Energy transition in the Socio-Economic Development in Africa, the commitment of all the decision makers, stake holders, a good government policy in the area will be very helpful and important for perspectives activities for sustainable development.

Questions from students:

It depends on the specificities of each country in term of renewable Energy.

For example, if we take like Niger, the country has uranium, so we have to focus on the uranium production for our nuclear power plant in order to develop our own Nuclear Energy capacity, countries like Sierre Leone, Liberia, Guinea the quantity of rain fall is very important during the year, there is abondance of water, they should go for Hydro power Energy production said Prof. Eric Ofosu Antwi for their sustainable Socio-Economic Development.

At the end a family photo was taken for the event.

Visit of Gorou Banda Niger Solar Power Plant by the Second Batch Students of The International Master’s Programme in Energy and Green Hydrogen (IMP-EGH)

Gorou Banda is located in Niamey municipality five (5) about 15 kilometers from Niamey the Capital city of Niger. After the contact visit between WASCAL and Gorou Banda responsible (NIGELEC), the two parties were coming together, to prepare the site visit to Gorou Banda solar power plant of 30 MW peak on Wednesday, 3rd of July 2024. These have shown us how important is to build relationships between partners. So, the partnership between Gorou Banda supervisors of the solar power plant of 30 MW and WASCAL Doctorate Research Programme on Climate Change and Energy DRP-CCE of Abdou Moumouni University, the Faculty of Sciences and Technologies (FAST), is illustrative. We have on board the staff of WASCAL NIGER, Professor Thierry Godjo a lecturer from BENIN, Dr Ayouba Abdoulkadri Coordinator of (IMP-EGH), Dr Hassane Adamou Responsible for Green Hydrogen Lab, and all the 69 students of the International Master’s Programme in Energy and Green Hydrogen, and also WASCAL’S students. We reached Gorou Banda at 10h:00 am, where we were received by the Chef Engineer, Miss SANI BOUBACAR Abiba, and the Senior Assistant Engineer, Mr. SOULEY Maharaz of Gorou Banda Solar Power Plant, after the welcome protocol the students were divided into two groups. The first group was with the Senior Engineer, Mr. SOULEY Maharaz, and the second group was with the Chief Engineer, Miss SANI BOUBACAR Abiba. The power plant of Gorou Banda has five (5) PTRs (post of transformation) within the Solar PV power plant, each PTR is connected to the NIGELEC POWER Grid via the different inventors of the five PTRs to the PDF. We have in total 28 junction boxes multiplied by five (5) the number of PTR Seven (7) junction boxes, each inverter has its operating range of 800v to 1200v maxi following in the morning the sun risings. All the components of the power plant have been visited and explain clearly, the role they played in the system. At the end of the site visit, a big thankfulness was given to all the supervisors of the Gorou Banda Solar Power Plant by WASCAL’s staff and the second batch student’s representative. The Chef Engineer, Miss SANI BOUBACAR Abiba was saying that there is a possibility of doing their internship at Gorou Banda Solar Power Plant because we need many students to come and do their internship.
