GE has introduced that it has secured an order to provide gasoline energy technology tools for West African Energy’s 300MW combined-cycle energy challenge in Cap des Biches, Dakar, Senegal.
“Upon completion, the Cap des Biches plant would be the greatest energy plant within the nation and is anticipated to generate almost 25% of the ability consumed, offering the equal electrical energy wanted to energy as much as 500,000 Senegalese houses,” said GE.

The plant is anticipated to start operations in phases beginning in 2022, enhancing common entry to electrical energy and supporting the Senegalese authorities’s goal to extend its technology capability with a higher utilisation of pure gasoline and renewables.
“We are happy to collaborate with GE to ship dependable and environment friendly gasoline generators to Senegal, aligned with the nation’s technique on gasoline to energy underneath the management of President Macky Sall to develop the power sector that can be crucial for the event of strategic sectors of the financial system, whereas actively driving localisation initiatives,” stated Samuel Sarr, CEO of West African Energy.
“Once accomplished, the challenge may even go a great distance in decreasing the price of electrical energy within the nation,” he added.
GE gasoline energy know-how
GE will provide two 9E.03 gasoline generators, one STF-A200 steam turbine, three A39 turbines, two Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSG) and extra stability of plant tools as a part of the challenge scope.
“Over the final decade, GE has been constructing on a confirmed monitor report of delivering and commissioning energy tasks in sub-Saharan Africa, and we’re delighted to proceed this pattern by offering our gasoline energy know-how to assist the anticipated renewables progress within the nation,” stated Elisee Sezan, CEO for GE’s Gas Power enterprise in sub-Saharan Africa.

“Cap des Biches Power Plant in Senegal represents one other alternative to make use of gas-fired turbines as a super complement to variable renewable assets as a result of they’ll change energy ranges rapidly, flip right down to low ranges when demand is decrease, and begin quickly. All of those attributes allow gasoline generators to work in live performance with renewables to take care of reliability in an influence system. The plant will present versatile energy to Senegal and assist enhance the standard of individuals’s lives,” he defined.
Cap des Biches combined-cycle gasoline turbine energy plant is being developed by Senegal’s West African Energy and can be constructed by Turkish engineering, procurement, and building (EPC) firm, Calik Enerji.
