According o bank documens, the Project involves the construction and operation of a thermal power plant with a gross capacity to generate 89.5 megawatts of electricity (MWe). The CECA SL Generation Limited power plant will be located near the Kissy Dock which is 4 kms 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 existing transmission 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 future. Desalinated water will be used for cooling, steam generation, and other uses at the plant. The Project site is located on an industrial plot which has a few residential, commercial, and industrial neighborhoods in its immediate vicinity.
