The Sendou power station is a 125-megawatt (MW) coal-fired plant in Sendou, Senegal, being developed by Compagnie d’Electricité du Sénégal SA, a consortium whose members include Quantum Group (50+%), Nykomb Synergetics, Vattenfall Power Consult, Maytas, BHEL, BMCE Bank, Standard Bank of South Africa and Comptoir Balland-Brugneaux. The project is located in Sendou, Bagny, Senegal. Royal HaskoningDHV UK Ltd. are the marine consultants to the project.
After several rounds of bidding in an extremely fierce and competitive global bidding environment for over 8 months, COMACOE was finally selected by CES in August 2017 for EPC execution of the Seawater intake/outfall system.
Cooling water requirement for the project will be met through ambient water from sea. The total requirement of seawater for intake system for the project is 1500 cum/hr. The reject water will be discharged in the sea with volume of 1000 cum/hr.
Total scope for COMACOE includes:
• Intake 1 x 1505m of 710/500mm OD HDPE Pipelines
• Outfall 1 x 1169m of 560mm OD HDPE Pipelines
This project presents some exciting challenges for COMACOE and these include a rocky outcrop in the entire offshore portion consisting of boulders calling for special marine spreads, special rock cutting/trenching equipment and techniques since it involves excavation of bolders in the near shore area where access from land is not possible and access using marine equipment is also difficult due to very shallow water depths. This, combined with the fact that a total of only 4 months is available to execute the entire project makes this one of the most challenging projects COMACOE has been entrusted with.
This project award is yet another testimony to COMACOE’s increasing global presence in specialist or niche marine construction market.
