About Globeleq in Cameroon

Globeleq owns a majority shareholding in the 88 MW Dibamba and 216 MW Kribi Power generation facilities. The Government of Cameroon holds the remaining share of the business.


Dibamba Power Development Company

The 88 MW Dibamba Power oil fired generation plant in Yassa Village near Douala, supplies electricity to the national transmission and distribution company, ENEO, through a 20-year power purchase agreement.

Commissioned in 2009, Dibamba Power was originally designed to be a peaking plant but due to increasing demand for electricity, Dibamba is running more frequently.


Kribi Power Development Company

The 216 MW Kribi Power gas fired generation plant located near the coastal city of Kribi supplies electricity to the national transmission and distribution company, ENEO, through a 20 year power purchase agreement.

Commissioned in 2013, Kribi runs on natural gas with light fuel oil as a backup. Natural gas is supplied from the offshore Sanaga South gas field in Cameroon. An expansion project for the Kribi project is currently in development and once completed, will expand the facility to generate a total of 330 MW of natural gas fired electricity.
