Azito Energy has selected GE to provide gas turbine technology and services for Azito phase IV power plant, located in the Yopougon district of Abidjan in Côte d’Ivoire. Under the terms of the contract, GE will supply its GT13E2 gas turbine in combined cycle configuration. GE will also supply an HRSG, a steam turbine, condenser, and associated systems and maintenance services for 20 years.
Once the phase IV extension is completed, the power plant will generate 710MW, representing 30 per cent of power in Côte d’Ivoire. The phase IV extension will generate 253MW.
Luc Aye, Managing Director of Azito Energie, said that Azito phase IV will be one of the most efficient plants in the region, and will serve as a model for the development of similar power projects in Africa.
