Niger Delta Power Holding Company Limited (NDPHC), owners of the National Integrated Power Project (NIPP), has said that it currently has about 1,025MW of electricity in three NIPP power stations across the country waiting to be exported into the national grid.
The Managing Director and Chief Executive of the company, Mr James Abiodun Olotu, disclosed this in Abuja at the weekend when the Commissioner of Police in charge of the Federal Capital Territory, Adenrele Shinaba, paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja.
“As we speak, we have five units at our Olorunsogo Phase II power station ready to deliver 650MW, and in Sapele about 250MW while in Omotosho, we have 125MW of electricity ready for the national grid,” Olotu stated.
The NDPHC boss, however, pointed out that the delivery of this 1,025MW into the national grid would be dependent on the availability of gas, adding that efforts by gas suppliers, Ministry of Petroleum Resources, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), International Oil Companies (IOCs) and the Nigeria Gas Company (NGC) were ongoing, and promised to be realised soon, thereby bridging the gas gap.
According to him, this year would be a harvest season for the organisation charged with the responsibility of boosting power infrastructure in the country.
Olotu expressed optimism that Alaoji Power Station, the largest among the 10 NIPP power stations, would also make a significant power delivery into the national grid before the end of this year.
“This year in NIPP is a year of harvest. Last week, we were in Lagos to commission 10 distribution injection substations that will boost the quality of electricity that will get to consumers. Similar projects were commissioned in Kaduna and more projects will be commissioned every month till the end of the year,” he stated.Share
