Siemens Energy’s scope of supply includes
one SGT5-4000F gas turbine and one SST5-3000 steam turbine, each along with a
generator, condenser and an SPPA-T3000 control system. Additionally, a comprehensive
12-year long-term service agreement (LTSA) has been signed between the end
customer ATINKOU S.A. and Siemens Energy.
“Siemens Energy is proud to be supplying
the very first, highly efficient F-class gas turbine to the Sub-Saharan region,
thereby continuing our commitment to improve access to reliable and affordable
energy in West Africa,” said Karim Amin, Executive Vice President of Siemens
Energy’s Generation Division. “Supported by our state-of-the-art technology and
services, this power plant will be the most efficient natural gas fired power
plant in Côte d’Ivoire and in the region. It will help to reduce the area’s carbon
footprint from power generation and support Côte d'Ivoire in its efforts to
become a regional energy hub."
“Since the signing of the
concession with Ivorian authorities in December 2018, the Pan-African
Industrial group Eranove– in charge of the design, financing, construction,
operation and maintenance of this plant, carried by the company ATINKOU– is
very proud to bring together partners like Siemens
Energy and TSK. The Atinkou power plant will produce electricity for thousands
of homes and industries to meet national and regional electricity needs
generated by strong economic growth," said Marc Albérola, CEO of the
Pan-African Industrial Group Eranove.
The SGT5-4000F gas turbine provides high
performance, low power generation costs, long intervals between inspections,
and a service-friendly design. Optimized flow and cooling add up to high gas
turbine efficiency and economical power generation in combined cycle
In March 2020, Siemens was awarded a
contract from the same EPC, TSK, to deliver an SGT-800 gas turbine, generator
and other key components for Eranove’s 65 MW combined cycle Kékéli Efficient
Power plant project in
, the capital city of
Togo in West Africa.
