The Niger Delta Power Holding Company on Sunday announced plans to complete four power plants with the capacity to add 2,000 megawatts of electricity to the grid.
It said the plants were located in Alaoji, Egbema, Omoku and Gbarain, adding that works on the plants which were originally awarded to Rockson Engineering Company Limited had stalled leading to the cancellation of the contracts by NDPHC.
The Executive Director, Generation, NDPHC, Kassim Abdullahi, disclosed this after inspecting the project sites housing the power plants, according to a statement issued in Abuja.
He said the company was making effort to engage new Engineering, Procurement and Construction contractors to complete the plants and make them available to the national grid.
He was quoted as saying, “In the short term, we are going to ensure that for all these power plants that are still undergoing installation; we will engage the right EPCs to make sure we complete them.
“We will employ the strategy of getting competent consultants to ensure that these projects are followed through. The aim is to make these power plants available and also ensure speedy engagement with the right government agencies for evacuation of power from the plants.”
