Côte d'Ivoire - AZITO IV Power Expansion Project - ESIA Summary


The AZITO Power Expansion Project stems from a memorandum of understanding between Azito Energie and the government of Côte d’Ivoire to install an additional capacity of approximately 250 - 335 MWe at the Azito facility. Azito Energie proposes to expand its existing 430MW combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant (Phase I, II and III) in the district of Azito, in the city of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The expansion (Phase IV) consists of adding one gas turbine, one heat recovery steam generator (HRSG), and one steam turbine with air cooled condenser on a 1-1-1 configuration with a combined additional output of approximately 250 – 335 MW. This expansion will increase the overall plant output to approximately 680 765 MWe. This Project will increase long-term delivery of electricity in Côte d’Ivoire and contribute to developing a more effective power supply in the country. AfDB is considering financing the project with other co-lenders. The other co-lenders that are considering financing of the Azito IV Expansion project include: IFC, Proparco, FMO, DEG, BIO, EAIF and BOAD.
