RESTRUCTURATION DES RESEAUX ELECTRIQUES - BENIN (RESTRUCTURING OF ELECTRIC NETWORKS - BENIN).

Promoter - Financial Intermediary : SOCIETE BENINOISE D'ENERGIE ELECTRIQUE (SBEE)

Sector (s) : Energy

Proposed EIB (approximate) : EUR 18 million

Description : The project focuses on the improvement and extension of electricity distribution networks, as well as the implementation of electrification programs for populations that are not served by the network or who have irregular connections. The project is located in the town of Abomey and the department of Afiantique which lie near Cotonou, the economic capital.

Goals : The project aims primarily to increase the electrification rate in the AtlEintico Department OF 37% (2013) to 58% (2017), including 34,000 new connections, including 9,000 in rural areas.

Environmental aspects : Transport 63 kV of this program will be implemented by means of underground cables, a development that would not require any of the environmental impact assessment (EIA) under Directive 2011/92 / EU if was located in the EU. Regarding the transmission lines and substations 15 kV and 20 kV, the impacts are less than for the 63 kV network and an EIA is not normally required for the lines and substations individually. The sponsor and the French Development Agency (AFD), however, found that an EIA was appropriate for this vast program. This assessment has been prepared by the proponent, the AFD's instructions.

Procurement : The developer will be required to complete the project in accordance with the AFD rules and procedures for procurement and compliance with agreed requirements and standards came EIB, AFD and KfW for projects under the Mutual Reliance Initiative (outside the EU operations), as provided in the Bank's Guide to Procurement.
