Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed 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.

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.
