The Limbé gas thermal power project comprises of:

Component 3: Construction of an access road to the site;
Component 4: Local subcontracting;

With a production capacity of 350MW, the Limbe gas-fired power station is expected to improve the supply of electricity in the Littoral, West, and South-West regions, a statement by the Ministry of Energy noted.
