According to bank documents, the Project involves the construction andoperation of a thermal power plant with a gross capacity to generate 83.5 megawatts of electricity (MWe). The CECA SL Generation Limited power plant will be located near the Kissy Dock, which is four kilometers from the center of Freetown in Sierra Leone. The thermal power plant consists of two combustion turbines and one steam turbine. The CECA SL Generation Limited thermal power plant will connect to the existingtransmission line at the Project site, which is connected to the local electricity grid. The main fuel for the power plant will be liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), which will be delivered by ship to the nearby jetty and will require a connecting pipeline of less than 1,300 meters in length. Diesel will be used as back-up fuel. The power plant is expected to convert to natural gas in the near future. Desalinated water will be used for water injection, steam generation, and other uses at the plant. The Project site is located on an industrial plot owned by the Government of Sierra Leone, which has residential, commercial, and industrial neighborhoods in its immediate vicinity. The site was cleared by the developer and 13 small farming households were resettled and provided compensation and livelihood restoration support, which was developed in compliance with IFC PS 5 requirements. The Project represents that no additional land acquisition, physical resettlement or economic displacement will result from the revised technical design.
