Background

Broto IPP, a subsidiary of Snedai Group (S.Energies), is proposing a 2 x 350 MW ultra-supercritical coal plant in the port city of San Pedro in the Ivory Coast. The project by S.Energies includes a proposed multi-purpose industrial terminal to supply coal to the power plant. The terminal will include a bulk dock and a coal dock, for an estimated traffic volume of 4.2 million tonnes per year. A concession agreement for the project was signed in December 2016.[1]

The estimated cost for the power station is US$800 million, and it is planned for 2020-2021.[2]

In September 2018 it was reported that China Power Construction had signed an agreement to fund and construct the plant, as part of the “One Belt, One Road” initiative.[3]
