NERC grants Ibom Power licence for additional 495mw

The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) yesterday granted a licence to the 190 megawatts (mw) Ibom Power to add 495mw to its plant in Akwa Ibom state.

The plant, wholly owned by the state government, has been generating and transmitting power to the national grid from its three gas turbines –  the GT-1, which generates 39mw; GT-2-41mw and GT-3-126mw  –  since 2009.

The Ibom Power Managing Director, Victor Udo, said the plant has a pre-designed generation capacity of 685mw, on which the state government has approached the NERC for an expanded licence to develop.

It already has its natural gas source from Septa Energy’s integrated gas receiving facility, which reportedly supplies the 563 Calabar and 504mw Alaoji plant built under the National Integrated Power Projects (NIPPs).
