The Sendou (Bargny) coal-fired power plant is in stark contrast to Senegal’s compliance with its global greenhouse gas reduction policy. The power plant down from July 19, 2019, even forces Senelec to resort to leasing to fill the gap.
In the committee, MEPs asked the Minister of Oil and Energy about the future of the plant. But nothing is clear at the moment. The government of the state remains completely unclear in this regard. “(…) There are discussions between Senelec, the shareholders and creditors of this project, about the return to operation of this plant (…),” suggests Sophie Gladima’s Aïssatou.
At the same time, however, Mamadou’s successor Makhtar Cissé adds that “the possibility of converting it to gas remains.”
