Africa Finance Corporation Signs Agreement to Develop Singrobo Project, Côte d’Ivoire

Development of the 44MW Singrobo hydroelectric power plant in Côte d'Ivoire has taken a major step forward following the signing of a joint development agreement between Africa Finance Corporation (AFC) and Ivoire Hydro Energy SA (IHE). Under the terms of the agreement, AFC has been appointed as a co-project developer and financier and will work with other developers to complete detailed technical studies, finalize the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), participate in procuring the engineering, procurement and construction contractor, lead the processes for preparing project costs, and oversee the final environmental and social Impact assessment studies. Project development expenses will be jointly financed by AFC and FMO, the Dutch development bank, through the joint AFC-FMO Project Development Facility. This Facility will provide a project development equity investment of up to USD 3 million to the project, with AFC to invest a further USD 3 million to take the project to financial close. AFC and FMO will also have the option to acquire further equity in IHE. The project will have a 35-year take or pay PPA with Ci-Energies, Côte d'Ivoire's public utility company under the management of the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum Products. The generated power will be transmitted from a 11/225 KV switchyard to the 225KV Taabo-Abidjan transmission line, through a proposed 225 kV circa 4 km transmission line from Singrobo.
