Cameroon - Kribi Gas Power Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 2) : Environmental and social impact assessment report addendum relating to Gas reciprocating engines (English)

The national power utility of Cameroon is currently developing the Kribi Power Project. The project will be owned by a subsidiary of AES SONEL and all the electricity produced will be delivered to the Southern Interconnected Grid (SIG) and sold to AES SONEL through a Power Purchasing Agreement (PPA). The Project will be located in the equatorial region of Cameroon. It will comprise the construction of a 150 MW gas fired power plant. The project impacts on water resources are: (i) contamination through soil erosion or spillage of potentially contaminative materials such as fuels, and (ii) altering the quantity of available water by over abstraction or changing run-off within the catchments. The project mitigation measures to include: (i) wherever possible materials arising from site earthworks will be stored and used within the redevelopment of the site. This will reduce the number of off-site vehicle movements required; (ii) the area cleared for construction activities will be kept to a minimum, retaining ground cover where possible, including a screen of vegetation and mature trees between the power plant site and the main road and residential housing; (iii) all pipe work for fuel delivery and discharge ground; (iv) drains from the workshops will be fitted with oil separators; and (v) all foul sewage will be directed through a septic tank for treatment prior to discharge via a soak away.
