Project Description

The Project involves the construction and operation of a thermal power plant with a gross capacity to generate 390 mega Watts of electricity (MWe). The CIPREL V power plant will be located in Taboth, approximately 50 kms west of Abidjan in Cote d’Ivoire. The thermal power plant consists of one combustion turbine (with a gross capacity of 255 MWe) and one steam turbine (with a gross capacity of 135 MWe). The CIPREL V thermal power plant will require a 11-km transmission line for connecting to the local electricity grid. The transmission line will be located in a right-of-way to be completed. The main fuel for the power plant will be natural gas which will be delivered by the existing gas pipeline network and will require a connecting pipeline of less than 5 kms in length. No back-up fuel is forecasted at the moment. Water will be used for cooling, steam generation, and other uses at the plant. The CIPREL V thermal power plant will be located on a 30-hectare plot of land. The Project site has a few residential neighborhoods in its immediate vicinity but is presently used as agricultural plantations by local residents.
