New power plant will contribute to reducing Côte d’Ivoire’s generation costs and GHG emissions


new power plant – called Atinkou – is set to boost energy generation and supply in Côte d’Ivoire, where, as of 2017, only 66 percent of the population had access to


electricity. The OPEC Fund is contributing to a €303 million financing package for the new gas- fired power project (the total cost of the project is €404 million). The syndication is led by IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, and the financing package will support the development and operation of a 390 MW natural gas-fired power plant located about 40 km west of Abidjan. By using highly efficient combined-cycle turbine technology, the plant will substantially contribute to reducing Côte d’Ivoire’s generation costs and GHG emissions, in part, through the displacement of older generation units. “The OPEC Fund is proud to be part of Atinkou

project to improve access to energy in Côte d’Ivoire,” said Dr Abdulhamid Alkhalifa, Director- General of the OPEC Fund. “We are committed to working with trusted development partners in support of the Sustainable Development Goals. This helps us to maximize our development impact across sectors and countries, and ultimately it enables us to improve the lives of more people.” Linda Rudo Munyengeterwa, IFC’s Regional


Industry Director, Infrastructure and Natural Resources, Middle East and North Africa, said: “Once built, Atinkou will provide affordable power to thousands of homes and businesses, while helping Côte d’Ivoire meet its goal of transitioning to greener electricity production. IFC’s investment in the project is a testimony to IFC’s longstanding commitment to Côte d’Ivoire’s


power sector, which began in 1994, when our partnership with CIPREL* began.” The sponsor of the project is the Eranove


Group, a leading industrial group that manages a number of water and electricity assets in West and Central Africa. Other finance is being provided by the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Netherlands Development Finance Company (FMO), Germany’s Deutsche Investitions- und Entwicklungsgesellschaft (DEG) and the Emerging Africa Infrastructure Fund (EAIF), as well as IFC and the OPEC Fund. The OPEC Fund has supported development


in Côte d’Ivoire for more than four decades. Development finance has been approved by the organization across its public, private sector and trade finance, and grant windows, to support operations in various industry sectors.
