    Delivery of siemens power project has recorded notable success - FG

    May 19, 2023 - Business Day


      The Federal Government of Nigeria Power Company says the Nigeria-Siemens Presidential Power Initiative, PPI, project for Phase 1 is underway and has recorded notable successes.

      The pilot project is aimed at addressing major constraints in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) through deployment of power transformers and mobile substations across the country.

      According to Kenny Anuwe, managing director of the company, the firm had received delivery of about 80 per cent of equipment for the pilot project which are being deployed to critical sites across the country to improve power transmission capacity.

      Some of the sites, according to him, include Apo, Ajah, Okene, Nike Lake, Kwanar Dangora, Maryland, Omouaran, Ojo, Amukpe, Ihovbor, Potiskum and Birnin Kebbi.

      He said: 'The Nigeria-Siemens PPI initiative will be delivered in three phases, with Phase 1 focusing on 'quick win' measures to increase end-to-end operational capacity to 7,000MW from the current capacity of about 5,000MW.

      'Phase 2 targets expanding the capacity of transmission and distribution systems to enable evacuation of up to 11,000 MW of electricity to consumers, while Phase 3 targets expanding the power grid to 25,000MW capacity, through further expansion of generation, transmission, and distribution systems.'

      For Anuwe, the implementation of PPI, being coordinated by FGN Power Company, is progressing and remains a vital programme for Nigeria's power sector.

      He also said the Federal Government of Nigeria, Siemens A.G and Siemens Energy have remained unswerving in their commitment to the project.

      'The successful implementation of projects under Phase 1 will culminate in the delivery of an additional 2,000MW, two million new connections to the national grid, training of over 5,000 engineers to operate the system network, and improved electricity access to millions of Nigerians.

      'Despite the notable successes recorded in this project, the project was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which occasioned a backlog in Siemens' production and limited the availability of manufacturing slots,' he said.
