The 100MW Lome Power Station was the first independent power project developed, financed and constructed in the Republic of Togo. Members of Endeavor’s senior management team had significant roles in the development and financing of the Lome Power Station in 2008.

The project reached financial close with OPIC as lender in 2009 and won the Euromoney 2009 Africa Project Finance Deal of the Year award.

In 2013, the project was also recognized as one of the Top 40 public-private partnerships of recent years by the International Finance Corporation and Infrastructure Journal.

The 100 megawatt tri-fuel plant was designed to run on a variety of fuels including low-sulfur heavy fuel oil, light fuel oil and natural gas. The Lome Power Station is located near Lome, Togo and is comprised of six Wärtsilä 50-DF engines capable of switching between fuel sources in a matter of minutes.

The Lome Power Station represented the largest electricity investment ever made in the Republic of Togo, and when completed in 2010, it tripled the country’s energy generation capacity.

The plant is operated by approximately 68 personnel; the vast majority of which are Togo citizens.
