Mauritius - Redevelopment Of Saint Louis Power Station Project - Project Completion Report

In 2013, the electricity supply and demand projections forecasted that electricity demand will exceed the installed generating capacity connected to the grid by the end of 2015. This would be due to the rise in electricity demand by customers coupled with the ageing and derated capacity of the Pielstick generating sets and other generation plants, which would lead to a gap in power supply of 36 MW by the end of 2015. At the same time, the country has strategized in abating the pollution problems caused by the old generating sets while developing renewable energy. These factors expedited the...

Maurice - Projet de Réaménagement de la Centrale Dde Saint Louis - Rapport d’achèvement de Projet

En 2013, les prévisions relatives à l'offre et à la demande d'électricité indiquaient que la demande dépasserait la capacité de production installée raccordée au réseau d'ici fin 2015. Cette situation serait due à la hausse de la demande d'électricité des clients, conjuguée à la capacité vieillissante et réduite des groupes électrogènes Pielstick et autres centrales de production. Il s’ensuivrait un déficit d’offre en électricité de 36 MW d’ici à fin 2015. Parallèlement, le pays a adopté une stratégie visant à réduire les problèmes de pollution causés par les anciens groupes électrogènes tout...
