GE partners with Nigeria’s power utility on a power intervention project
General Electric (GE) has announced its intention to collaborate with the Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC) on the development of an end-to-end power intervention (EEIP), in efforts to help boost power supply in Nigeria.
This announcement followed a signing of a letter of intention by both parties during the France-Nigeria Business Forum in Lagos last week.
EEIP is aimed at delivering incremental power from the NIPP’s underutilised or stranded capacity to several industrial and commercial hubs through multiple solutions across the entire electricity value chain.
Under the agreement, GE will provide end-to-end power solutions across the value chain to deliver 2.5GW of power.
The collaboration will see NDPHC partner with GE to work with discos, Transmission Company of Nigeria and other relevant stakeholders, to identify and prioritise critical projects to reduce technical and commercial losses.
The focus will be on the expansion, repair and upgrade of all critical transmission and distribution infrastructure.
