Compagnie Sucrière Sénégalaise (CSS) is the largest private employer of Senegal (5,200 people) and the leading sugar producer in the country (100,000 tons/year). The company is an affiliate of Groupe Mimran: http://css.sn
CSS 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. The electricity produced is consumed by internal facilities which cancel the use of gen-sets based on diesel consumption. CO2 emission are reduced by displacing fossil fuel (coal) to biomass. Project was inaugurated in 2012.
