Cap des Biches : design, construction and operation of a 53 MW Heavy-Fuel Oil fired combined cycle thermal power plant

Senegal

Titre : Cap des Biches : design, construction and operation of a 53 MW Heavy-Fuel Oil fired combined cycle thermal power plant

Pays : Senegal
Localisation : The Project is located in Cap des Biches in Rufisque (23 km east of Dakar) in Senegal.

Actual Start Date : 2015-12-14

Identifiant IATI : XM-DAC-903-SII-35175

Présentation
The proposed project, to be developed by Contour Global Cap des Biches (the Company), involves the design, construction and operation of a 53 MW Heavy-Fuel Oil fired combined cycle thermal power plant located in Rufisque (23 km east of Dakar) in Senegal. The project consists of three 16.5 MW combustion engines equipped with a 3.5 MW combined cycle / heat recovery system and a short transmission line of approximately 500 meters in length connecting the power plant to an existing adjacent substation. The Project entails the creation of a newly created Senegalese company, ContourGlobal Cap des Biches, which is wholly-owned by ContourGlobal, a global developer and operator of power generation projects.

Objectifs
The proposed project’’s positive development impact includes : (i) ensure a reliable and sustainable energy supply in light of Senegal’’s urgent needs given strong demand growth and delay of other projects ; (ii) reducing average energy generation costs and make power more affordable ; (iii) further strengthening of private sector participation in power ; and (iv) financing a highly efficient power plant which is expected to reduce fuel costs for the offtaker and the country as it displaces less efficient plants in the country.
