TSK Electrónica y Electricidad S.A., the engineering, procurement, and construction contractor for the Atinkou CCGT power plant project in Côte d’Ivoire, has signed up Siemens Energy, one of the world’s leading energy technology companies, to provide its “highly efficient energy technology and services” for the West African country’s combined-cycle, gas turbine power plant project.
Siemens will supply one SGT5-4000F gas turbine and one SST5-3000 steam turbine, each along with a generator, condenser, and an SPPA-T3000 control system. 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 the high gas turbine efficiency and economic power generation.
Additionally, the energy technology company will also offer a comprehensive 12-year long-term service for the project as agreed with the owner of the power plant i.e. ATINKOU S.A., a subsidiary of Eranove.
Remarks on this sign up
Commenting on this partnership Karim Amin, the executive vice-president of Siemens Energy’s Generation Division said that the company is proud to be supplying the very first, highly efficient F-class gas turbine to the sub-Saharan region, thereby continuing its commitment to improving access to reliable and affordable energy in West Africa region.
“Supported by our state-of-the-art technology and services, this power plant will be the most efficient natural gas-fired power plant in Ivory Coast and the West Africa region at large. It will help reduce the region’s carbon footprint from power generation and support the host country in its efforts to become a regional energy hub,” explained Amin.
“Since the signing of the concession with Ivorian authorities back in December 2018, the Pan-African Industrial group Eranove, which is in charge of the design, financing, construction, operation, and maintenance of this plant, carried out by ATINKOU – is very proud to bring together partners like Siemens Energy and TSK,” said Marc Albérola, CEO of Eranove.
