Four GE Gas Turbines To Be Used For Nigerian Power Plant
Nigeria will expand its energy infrastructure by adding four GE gas turbines for the Omotosho Phase 2 Power Plant, located in Ondo State in southwestern Nigeria. The project will assist Nigeria in providing reliable electric power, alleviating power shortages and reducing the number of blackouts, GE said.
GE will provide four Frame 9E gas turbines, generators, accessories, technical assistance and training to the EPC contractor for the project, China Machinery & Equipment Company (CMEC).
Owned and operated by the Power Holding Co. of Nigeria (PHCN), the new plant should add more than 500 MW of power to Nigeria’s grid when it enters commercial service in 2013. The government of Nigeria has set a target to add 35 000 MW of new electricity generation over the next 10 years to support the country’s rapid development, GE said.
