GE Vernova Wins 25-Year Service Agreement for Senegal Power Plant

GE Vernova has secured a 25-year service agreement for West African Energy’s 300 MW combined cycle power project in Cap des Biches in Senegal. The deal covers parts, repairs, field services and advanced predictive maintenance for the two GE Vernova 9E.03 gas turbines and accessory equipment.

“We awarded GE Vernova the service agreement because they have the technology expertise and proven gas turbine services track record to help make sure that our power plant operates at the highest levels of reliability,” said Samuel Sarr, CEO of West African Energy.

The agreement also includes Asset Performance Management (APM) software from GE Vernova’s Digital business to enhance efficiency once the power plant is operational.

“We are pleased that West African Energy awarded us the agreement to help ensure they meet their energy production and capacity supply goals while supporting the Senegalese Government’s target to increase its generation capacity with a greater utilization of natural gas and renewables,” noted Kenneth Oyakhire, Services Managing Director of GE Vernova’s Gas Power business in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Cap des Biches power plant, the first gas-to-power project in Senegal, will supply over 25% of the country’s power needs and is expected to commence operations in phases from 2024.
