Siemens Energy delivers gas turbine to Kekeli power plant

(Togo First) - The Siemens’ SGT-800 gas turbine ordered for the Kekeli power plant has been delivered successfully. 

In a statement published on 30 September 2020, Siemens Energy announced: “As part of the 65 MW combined cycle power plant project under development in the Republic of Togo, Siemens Energy had the pleasure to deliver an SGT-800 gas turbine to the Kékéli Efficient SA site.” The turbine had left Finspang port in Sweden at the end of May. 

According to Marcus Nelle, Siemens’ senior vice president of sales for Africa, “we are proud to be following through on our commitment to the people of Togo to provide affordable and reliable power sources while also moving toward an environmentally sustainable and financially accessible baseload energy production.”

The plant will boost the stability of Togo’s power grid. It aligns with the country’s goal to achieve universal electrification by 2030. 

Valued at CFA65.4 billion, the Kékéli project also aligns with the 2018-2022 national development project. It is financed based on a public-private partnership model. The state of Togo and Eranove have signed a concession agreement for its construction and operation.
