Nigerian power generation drops to 2,521 MW

Oct 27, 2007 02:00 AM

The power situation in Nigeria has again dropped sharply from about 3,600 MW to 2,521 MW.
A source close to the Presidency, who confirmed this development, blamed the drop in power generation to non-availability of gas to run the three thermal stations in the country. With this development, electricity customers who have experienced relatively stable power supply recently will have cause to groan.

The source said pipelines supplying gas to these power stations, which were vandalised by youths of the Niger Delta, contributed to the drop in power supply.
According to the source, the current generation capacity of Egbin power plant, one of the three thermal stations, which has an installed capacity of 1,320 MW, is about 120 MW. The source added that Okpai power plant generates 480 MW, Afam (123 MW), Delta plant (348 MW), Omoku (41.2 MW) and Geregu plant (146 MW).
