Jindal power station (Senegal)

From Global Energy Monitor

The Jindal power station (Senegal) was a proposed 350-megawatt (MW) coal-fired plant in Senegal. There have been no known developments since 2015 so the project is presumed to be cancelled.

India's Jindal Power and SENELEC, the Senegalese state owned electricity company (Société nationale d'électricité du Sénégal), signed a PPA relating to a power plant project in Senegal of 350 MW on February 6, 2015.[1]

At the time of the signing, the feasibility study was reported as completed and land acquisition underway. The plant was to use imported coal. Jindal was planning to issue EPC tender documents by December 2015.[2]

As of June 2021, there have been no known developments on the project. A May 2017 document suggests that, for Senegal to reach its climate goals (INDC), the Jindal power station would potentially be replaced by two combined-cycle LNG (CCGN) power plants totaling 400 MW (2020: 200 MW and 2028: 200 MW).[3]
