Ashmore’s involvement in the Electrical Reinforcement of La Guajira 110Kv concession in Colombia improved energy access in a region marked by income inequality. This project included constructing transmission lines and refurbishing substations to enhance the electrical grid’s reliability.
Ashmore focused on community engagement, used existing infrastructure to minimize environmental impact, and collaborated with local suppliers. The project increased energy transportation capacity, reduced power cuts, and benefited over 700,000 users while creating jobs and supporting environmental and social initiatives. Importantly, it lays the groundwork for future renewable energy projects, contributing to energy diversification in the region.
