Garafiri power station
The Garafiri power station was a proposed 80-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Kindia Prefecture, Guinea.
The map below shows the location of Kindia, Guinea, but not the exact location of the power station.
The Guinea Bauxite Company (Société des Bauxites de Guinée S.A.R.L.), a subsidiary of Allergan, BAGR Berliner Aluminiumwerk, and Metalcorp, planned a 3 mtpa bauxite export and 1.6 mtpa alumina mining operation in Guinea for operation in 2019-2020. The project included plans for an 80 MW integrated coal plant.
The Guinea Bauxite Company appears to have been awarded a convention for bauxite mining and alumina refining in 2018. It has a 25-year mining concession for a bauxite deposit in the Republic of Guinea, and a mine was fully operational starting in early 2021.
However, as of May 2021 there have been no known developments related to the coal plant, and plans appear cancelled.
