Project Description

The proposed CIPREL 5 Independent Power Project (“the project” or “the CIPREL 5 project”) is being developed by Atinkou S.A. (“Atinkou” or “the Company”), a Special Purpose Vehicle owned by Eranove, a leading industrial group that manages and provides technical oversight to its subsidiaries in Côte d'Ivoire and Senegal. The project consists in the construction and operation of a natural gas-fired power plant near Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The Project is designed as a 390 MW combined cycle to be built on a new site located approximately 50 km west from Abidjan and will be constructed and operated under a 20-year Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (“BOOT”) concession agreement. The proposed IFC investment includes an IFC A loan and client risk management instruments (interest rate hedging) for an aggregate amount of up to EUR [120] million. In addition, IFC will be mobilizing the remaining balance of the required debt amount for the project.

The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
