Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Phase IV of the Azito Power Expansion Project. It aims to install an additional capacity of approximately 250 - 335 MWe at the Azito facility. The expansion (Phase IV) consists of adding one gas turbine, one heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), and one steam turbine with air cooled condenser on a 1-1-1 configuration with a combined additional output of approximately 250 – 335 MW. This expansion will increase the overall plant output to approximately 680 765 MWe. This Project will increase long-term delivery of electricity in Côte d’Ivoire and contribute to developing a more effective power supply in the country.

Project Objectives

The objective of this Phase IV is to expand the existing 430 MW combined cycle gas turbine power plant.


The beneficiaries of the project are households in Abidjan and Côte d'Ivoire in general, large mining operations, industry and some neighbouring countries. The project will help to increase in income generation through increase in additional tax and other revenues payable to the government of Ivory Coast; creation of new economic opportunities to local businesses and provision of goods and services to the construction and operation workers. Women will benefit directly through jobs and indirectly benefit through increased access to electricity and entrepreneurship by providing goods and services at the construction site.
