The Soubre hydroelectric power station is Cote d’Ivoire and West Africa’s largest hydropower dam that has been built in Soubre, Cote d’Ivoire, in a move that further cements the country as a key supplier of electricity in the region. The Soubre hydroelectric power station is strategically located at the Naoua Falls on the Sassandra River.

It has an installed capacity of 275 megawatts (MW), which will help raise Cote d’Ivoire’s power output while enhancing the country’s status as a principal power producer and supplier in West Africa. “With Soubre dam, we’re on course to meet the target of 4,000 MW by 2020,” said Thierry Tanoh, energy minister of Cote d’Ivoire.

Cote d’Ivoire is interconnecting Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea through the TRANSCO CLSG interconnection project.
