Nigeria’s biggest power station says generation hits 1,000MW

Egbin Power Plc, Nigeria’s biggest power station, says it has achieved a 1,000 megawatts power generation, which it described as “a feat representing a new peak in a two-year record”.

Last year, the company announced a plan for its Phase Two investment expansion plan that is projected to add up to 1,750MW into the national grid.

Its Chief Executive Officer, Mokhtar Bounour, said the feat was made achievable through the support and cooperation of industry operators and stakeholders.

He also commended the employees for their commitment towards delivering outstanding performance which has consistently enabled the company to make significant contribution to the power sector.

He said: “This remarkable achievement recorded on Sunday, June 25, 2023, could not have been possible without the support of industry operators. It is a testament to the fact that collaboration is key to progress in the power sector.

“At Egbin Power, we have a culture of excellence deeply entrenched in our operations, and we give priority to human capital development, while we pay high attention to quality maintenance of our facility, in addition to our best-in-class health, safety and environment practice.

He said the company is committed to the goal of increasing the capacity of the plant and to consistently drive sustainability.
