INVESTING IN ELECTRICAL INFRASTRUCTURE
WHERE IT’S NEEDED MOST
Electricity supply is critical for the economic development of all nations, and this is especially true for the worlds frontier markets.
Symbion has considerable experience operating in the most challenging of circumstances. From war ravaged countries like Iraq and Afghanistan to developing countries across the African continent where 600 million people still don’t have access to electricity.
We understand the risks that prevail in emerging markets and we know how to mitigate them so that we can ensure that our investments are successful. Our partners and our lenders expect us to deliver where others cannot.
