Power grid to get additional 126MW in December
The Niger Delta Power Holding Company says an additional 126 megawatts of electricity will be added to the national power grid latest in December.
The Managing Director, NDPHC, Chiedu Ugbo, in an interview, said the 126 megawatts will be added following the completion of the second gas turbine of the Gbarain Power Station in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State. According to him, one of the gas turbines of the Gbarain plant had been finally erected and ready to supply power to the grid.
“The power plant has a name-plate capacity of 252MW. One unit of 126MW is already working; it is the second unit of 126MW that we are completing. This is to happen this year,” Ugbo said. He explained that the Gbarain Power Station was one of the four power stations hitherto awarded to Rockson Engineering.
