Enshore Subsea has been successful in its bid for the Senegal Power Compact, a landmark program financed by the US-based Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) and the Senegalese Government to contribute to the ‘global fight against poverty; the Program aims to revolutionise Senegal’s power infrastructure and provide sustainable electricity to millions of people. The offshore works will start in October 2023 and last until Q3 2025.
Under this landmark agreement, Enshore Subsea, in a strategic Joint Venture with Herbosch Kiere, a leading Belgian Hydraulic Engineering company, will manage the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation (EPCI) contract, encompassing both land and submarine works of two ~17.5 km 220 kV links stretching from Bel Air in Dakar to Cap des Biches.
An integrated joint venture will be established with Enshore Subsea in which both parties will share 50% of the responsibilities.
“We are honoured to be selected as a key partner for the Senegal Power Compact Program,” said Pierre Boyde, Managing Director of Enshore Subsea. “This is a transformative initiative that aligns perfectly with our commitment to providing sustainable energy solutions.
Enshore Subsea and Herbosch Kiere will strongly emphasise local capacity building and skills development throughout the project’s duration.
“We firmly believe in the power of equality, collaboration and knowledge-sharing, and we are eager to work alongside local talents, businesses, and authorities to leave a lasting positive impact on the community,” added Will Stephenson, Enshore’s Commercial Director.
The Senegal Power Compact program is expected to create numerous job opportunities, stimulate economic growth, and significantly enhance the reliability and accessibility of electricity in the Dakar region and beyond. Additionally, the program’s successful completion will contribute to Senegal’s progress in achieving its sustainable development goals.
