The Project involves the construction and operation of a 120 mega Watts (MW) thermal power plant that is located in the Commune of Malicounda of the Mbour Department in Senegal. The Project consists of the installation of seven combustion engines of 18 MW each, a steam turbine, and a short transmission line of approximately 200 meters in length connecting the power generation units to an existing substation. The main fuel for the entire power plant will be heavy fuel oil. The power plant site is located near the village of Malicounda Wolof in an area comprising of a mix of agricultural fields and empty, uninhabited residential plots. Water will be used for cooling, steam generation, and other uses at the plant. The thermal power plant will be located on a 18-hectare plot of land. The construction period is estimated to last 22 months with peak construction requiring about 400 workers.
