The development objectives for Electricity Sector Support Project for Senegal are: (a) reducing (Société Nationale d'Électricité du Sénégal), SENELEC’s technical and commercial losses; and (b) improving the reliability of electricity services in selected areas focusing primarily on Greater Dakar. The Additional Financing (AF) will scale up and finance new activities under a well performing parent project. The AF also leverages parallel co-financing in the amount of 94 million US dollars from the European Investment Bank (EIB). The Project development objectives (PDOs) will remain unchanged, and the proposed AF will make additional investments in the transmission and distribution (T&D) network of SENELEC the national power utility, as well as scale up measures to address losses to improve SENELEC’s commercial performance and in turn improve service quality to customers. As part of the AF, it is proposed to extend the project closing date by four years, to October 31, 2020. This is the first AF and first extension of the project.
