The Integrated energy access project in the Republic of Congo

The Integrated Project is a large-scale model we are developing in the Republic of Congo to expand energy access for the local population. With the gas produced from the Marine XII and M'Boundi fields, we supply the Centrale electrique du Djéno (CED) and the Centrale Electrique du Congo (CEC). As part of the same initiative, we contribute to upgrading the electric transmission infrastructure in the area and expanding the distribution network.

Our activities in the Republic of Congo are aimed at improving the quality of life of the population and the socioeconomic development of the area. This is a challenge we are engaged in on several fronts such as the valorisation of gas, electricity production and supply, access to drinking water, and modernisation of daily food cooking systems.

Actions and objectives of the project

Our integrated model for energy access

With the construction of the two new power plants, we are able to make the grid between the cities of Pointe-Noire and Brazzaville even more efficient and expand public lighting, with the installation of 6500 streetlights. In particular, CEC contributes 70 percent of the total electricity generation in the entire Republic of Congo and maximises the use of gas for electricity generation.
The integrated project also ensures environmental benefits through the Hinda Integrated Project, bringing electricity to 33 community facilities (11 health centres and 22 drinking water wells) powered by solar panels.

Eni Impact Tool to gauge the benefits of the Pointe-Noire Power Plant

In collaboration with the Politecnico di Milano, we developed and tested a tool to assess the direct and indirect effects of the project on the quality of life of the local community.
