Aiming to expand further abroad after Northern Cyprus investment, Aksa Energy took its first step toward globalization in 2015. Acting to transfer its efficiency and sustainability oriented approach to
overseas markets, Aksa Energy’s first target was Africa. It entered the African continent with the power plants it has built and commissioned in Ghana, Madagascar and Mali in a short time. Consolidating its presence in Africa with guaranteed electricity sales agreements on a foreign currency basis, Aksa Energy plans to expand its global service network further and closely monitors new investment opportunities in countries that have an urgent energy need.
