Bargny (also, Bargny-Gouddau and Bargny Gouddou) is a settlement in Senegal. It is located in a somewhat sheltered bay about 15 km to the east of the capital, Dakar.


Bargny is the site of a proposed deep water port for mineral export [1] such as for iron ore.[2]

The railway which has followed the coast from Dakar heads inland from this point to Thies.

In 2016, construction of the Train Express Regional started.


A coal-fired power station, the Sendou power station is a planned in the nearby hamlet of Sendou (also spelled Siendou).
