US government agency Overseas Private Investment Corporation (Opic) VP David Bohigian met with Togolese Prime Minister Komi Klassou on Wednesday to tour the Opic-supported Lomé thermal power plant, which has tripled the country’s energy supply.   US-based ContourGlobal built the plant in Togo with financing and political risk insurance from Opic. One of the largest investments ever made in Togo, the power plant has succeeded in bolstering the country’s energy generation capacity and significantly reducing rolling blackouts.   “With a growing economy and need for investment in power, infrastructure, water, agriculture and other development sectors, Opic looks forward to growing our partnership with Togo and spurring investment,” Bohigian said.
