List Of 8 Ongoing Power Projects In Nigeria
Nigeria is currently using the 4,600 megawatts of
electricity but there are ongoing projects by the
government to increase this output and add at least
340MW before the end of 2017.
Nigeria as a nation has suffered a lot when it comes to
the availability of electricity. However, the federal
government has promised to increase the power output
by launching several power plant projects.
Below are some of the power sector projects in Nigeria:
1. 450 Megawatts Azura Power Plant
Azura Thermal power station is a natural gas powered
electricity generation plant, with a proposed capacity of
1,500 megawatts, under construction in Edo state,
Nigeria. It is an IPP project, with the first phase
already under construction. It is expected to be
commissioned in 2018.
2. 700 Megawatts Hydro Power Plant
Zungeru power plant in Niger state was first conceived
in 1982, but was abandoned due to lack of funds and
dispute among the parties involved. Construction
started again in 2016 and is expected to be completed
by 2019.
3. 240 Mega Watts Afam Power Plant
Afam Power Plc is a thermal power plant located in
the gas rich Rivers state. It is expected to be completed
by December 2017.
4. 40 Mega Watts Kashimbilla Hydro Power Plant
Located in Taraba state, the construction of the 40
Mega Watts Kashimbilla power plant started in March
2017 and it is expected to be running by the end of the
5. 215 Mega Watts Kaduna Power Plant
The contract of the power project in Kaduna state was
awarded in 2009 and it was expected to be completed
within 36 months. However, the project experienced
some delay due to inadequate budgetary allocation. It's
expected to start running before the end of this year.
6. 40 Mega Watts Gurara Power Plant
Also in Kaduna state, the completion of the Gurara
Hydro power plant would generate additional 30
7. 29 Mega Watts Dadin Kowa Hydro Power Plant
Located in Gombe state, the construction of the Dadin
Kowa plant is expected to be completed in November
8. 10 Mega Watts Katsina Wind Power Plant
The N4.4 billion Katsina Wind power plant project was
awarded to a French company in 2010 and was
scheduled for completion in 2012. However, the project
has been stalled due to several reasons. No completion
date has been announced yet.
Meanwhile, the minister of power, works and housing,
Babatunde Fashola, has ascribed the recent drop in
power supply in the country to the recent attacks on
gas pipelines in the Niger Delta region by militants.
Fashola speaking on issues affecting the sector said the
government had concluded plans on sustainable power
development and supply strategy to tackle the power
We hope this various project will be completed and power supply restored
