The map below shows the likely location of the power station in Dakar Region, Senegal.
Dangote Cement appears to operate a 30 MW coal-fired power station.
In March 2014, an article highlighted how establishing a cement and coal-fired power plant in Pout, Senegal, in the heart of the Niayes ecological zone, is an ecological disaster.
In 2018, Dangote provided 5.5 GWh of power to SENELEC's interconnected network, and in 2019, 7.3 GWh. Is is unclear if some or all of the power was from coal.
A 2019 investigation by Nigeria’s International Centre for Investigative Reporting found that Dangote is prospering in its coal mining activity at the detriment of host communities.
