IED conducted training of SENELEC staff on GISELEC software in January 2020, in collaboration. with RMT, a subsidiary of Eiffage.

GISELEC, the electrical and mechanical computing software based on the technology of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to calculate and map the networks to be built,has now became the reference software of Senegal's national electricity company, for the electrical and mechanical sizing of low- and medium-voltage distribution networks.

SENELEC, which employs more than 2,000 people, has purchased licenses from IED for the GISELEC software, which is intended to be used both at headquarters and at the regional level.

This training is part of the capacity building programme initiated at the end of 2018 in Dakar and the training already provided at the FDI premises in Francheville in March 2019 to enable SENELEC officers to deal with real cases and problems with GISELEC and to achieve the goals of universal access to electricity in Senegal by 2025.


SENELEC employees from all parts of Senegal in charge of rural electrification projects participated in this training session organized in January 2020 at the SENELEC professional development center in Rufisque.

Many countries are already using GISELEC software, which is becoming a reference on the African continent. Future training courses are planned. Please check thre for more information
