The Sendou (Bargny) coal-fired power plant is in complete contradiction with Senegal’s adherence to its global policy to reduce greenhouse gases. The power plant has been in operation since July 19, 2019, although Senelec has been forced to lease to fill this gap.
In the committee, deputies asked the Minister of Oil and Energy about the future of this plant. But for now, nothing is clear. The state government maintains complete vagueness on this issue. “(…) Senelec, the shareholders and the lenders of this project are having discussions to return to the operation of this plant (…),” said Sophie Gladima Aïssatou.
But at the same time, Mamadou Makhtar Cissé’s successor added that “the possibility of converting to gas remains the same.”
