Siemens Energy to supply gas turbine to new power plant in Côte d’Ivoire

05 May 2021

Siemens Energy has signed an agreement with Spanish EPC contractor TSK to provide the company’s highly efficient energy technology and services to Atinkou (formerly known as Ciprel V), a new combined cycle power plant to be built in Jacqueville, Côte d'Ivoire.

Owned by ATINKOU SA, a subsidiary of Eranove, the power plant will have an installed capacity of 390MW in combined cycle and introduces the first F-class gas turbine in Sub-Saharan Africa. The plant is scheduled to begin operations in late 2022.

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 SA and Siemens Energy.

The SGT5-4000F gas turbine provides high performance, low power generation costs, long intervals between inspections, and a service-friendly design. Optimised flow and cooling add up to high gas turbine efficiency and economical power generation in combined cycle applications.

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 65MW combined cycle Kékéli efficient power plant project in Lomé, the capital city of Togo in West Africa.
