Shiroro to seek NERC, BPE approval for 300mw solar plant


In The News

The Shiroro Hydroelectric Power Station is  seeking  both the  Bureau of Public Enterprise (BPE’s) and the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC’s) approval for the construction of a 300mw photo voltaic  (solar) power plant.

The new plant is to be built within the premises of the existing Shiroro  plant which the Federal Government concessioned to North South Power Company  (NSP) Limited  on November 1, 2013.

The firm’s Chief Technical Officer, Mr. Roland Lwiindi, told the Post Privatisation Monitoring Team of the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE) that was on a monitoring exercise at the power station, that should the Federal Government give the company the go ahead to establish the plant,  its first phase  would come on line in 2017.

The leader of the BPE delegation, Mr. Abdullahi Shaibu, in response, told the company that the Federal Government would have to constitute its  National Council on Privatisation (NCP) before it could review and act on the request.
