The project consists in the expansion of the Azito power plant in Côte d'Ivoire, by converting the existing simple-cycle power plant with 2 x 144 MW gas-fired turbines, to a combined-cycle power plant through the addition of two heat recovery steam generators, a 139 MW steam turbine generator, and all associated balance of plant. The Azito Energie power plant was commissioned in 2001 as a simple-cycle gas-fired power plant with output of 2 x 144 MW and an 18 km double circuit 225 kV transmission line. The Project should contribute to Côte d’Ivoire’s regaining its former role of a major regional power player. The total cost of the Azito expansion project is estimated at USD 430 million.
This project aims to increase the production capacity of the Azito plant.
The main beneficiaries of the project are: the local communities of the village of Azito and the village of Béago, the local interest groups (cooperative producers of attiéké, livestock farmers, etc.) as well as the entire population of Côte d'Ivoire.
