Turkey willing to send ship to Senegal to generate electricity

25 February 2011

The Senegalese minister for Urbanization and Sanitation, Adama Sall, announced last Wednesday in Dakar that Turkey was prepared to send a ship to Senegal which is capable of generating electricity.

This aid from Turkey will contribute to filling the energy deficit from which Senegal suffers: "There is a deficit in terms of energy of 200 megawatts, and Turkey is ready and willing to send a ship to generate 150 megawatts", he told the APS press agency.

Mr. Sall was speaking during a visit by a delegation of 70 Turkish businessmen and company heads to Dakar, with a view to strengthening cooperation between the two countries.

The project will not require the construction of any infrastructures: "There is already a company in place, and the generation will be done directly on board the ship", it was affirmed, Wednesday 23 February by the Turkish minister Mustafa Demir, whose words were reported by La Dépêche diplomatique.
