The Congo Electric Power Station, established in 2007 at the behest of an 80% company owned by the Congolese government and 20% by Eni Congo, consists of two gas turbines, each with 150 megawatts fueled by natural gas. Currently the plant covers over 50% of the country’s electricity demand with broad prospects that the percentage will grow.
