Senegal: Karpowership LNG conversion by June, Wärtsilä project update

Issue 436 - 15 Apr 2021 | 2 minute read

Karpowership’s 235MW Aysegül Sultan powership will start its switch to LNG in May or June, Asli Sürek of Karpowership told African Energy on 8 April. The ship has produced some 15% of Senegal’s electricity using heavy fuel oil (HFO) since it began operations in October 2019. The Aysegül Sultan will be sub-Saharan Africa’s first LNG-fuelled power plant. Sürek said Karpowership intends eventually to switch its entire fleet to LNG.
