Wärt­silä Flex­i­cy­cle power plant in­au­gu­rated in Sene­gal

Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES INTERNATIONAL -

The new Cap des Biches power plant was re­cently in­au­gu­rated in Sene­gal. The 53 MW Flex­i­cy­cle plant com­prises three Wärt­silä 46 in­ter­nal com­bus­tion en­gines and a com­bined cy­cle heat re­cov­ery sys­tem. The project is part of the US govt’s Power for Africa ini­tia­tive, which aims to add 30,000 MW of new power gen­er­a­tion ca­pac­ity in Sub-Sa­ha­ran Africa. The project is de­signed so that the plant can quickly be con­verted to nat­u­ral gas as soon as it be­comes avail­able. With the Cap des Biches ex­ten­sion project com­pleted, Wärt­silä’s in­stalled ca­pac­ity in Sene­gal will reach 465 MW, some 55 per cent of the coun­try’s to­tal ca­pac­ity.
