Supporting Energy Efficiency at Industrial Level in Senegal.
Compagnie Sucrière Sénégalaise (CSS), the leading sugar producer of Senegal, installed a new boiler and turbo-generator of 25 MW in its sugar mill facility located in Saint Louis, North of Senegal.
By improving the cogeneration plant’s energy efficiency, the project avoids the use of heavy fuel and makes it possible to use bagasse as the only fuel resource to supply the boilers. CO2 emissions are reduced by displacing fossil fuel (coal) to biomass. The generation of green electricity promotes a better interaction between the sugar-cane sector and the Senegalese power sector, as the Project reduces the energy deficit of the country by supplying more than 1.3% of the national gross power generation.
