Engines Plant in Togo

In a high-growth region like Sub-Saharan Africa, energy is critical to building a stable local economy. In recent years, Togo has had one of the region’s smallest electricity supplies (85 MW) and has had to import nearly 90% of its energy from Ghana & Nigeria. Today, the country is generating its own power with a 100 MW plant using natural gas or heavy fuel oil as main fuel and diesel as backup. This “tri-fuel” approach also allows rapid switching between fuels, providing flexibility in case the primary fuel type ever becomes unavailable. Project Finance awarded us the Private Power Plant Deal of the Year in 2009, acknowledging our success increasing the country’s generation sources by over 200%. The plant is running now for more than 3 years with availability higher than 98%.
