Siemens is to supply turbines for the 459 MW Azura-Edo power plant in Nigeria in another boost for the country’s power generation capacity.
The company has been contracted to supply turbines and generators for the independent power producer (IPP) gas-fired power plant in the south of the country.
The Azura-Edo power project is an open cycle gas turbine power station, and represents the first phase of the 2,000 MW facility planned near Benin City in Edo State, Nigeria.
Scheduled to be commissioned in July 2018, it is being run by Azura Power West Africa.
Under the contract, Siemens will supply three SGT5-2000E gas turbines, three SGen-100A generators as well as the SPPA-T3000 control system for the turbines.
Siemens Power and Gas Southern, Western & Central Africa region sales head Andreas Pistauer said: “With the supply of Siemens power plant technology, the long-term service contract and our involvement in the financing of the plant we are supporting our customer Azura Power in its ambitious efforts to expand the power generating capacity of the country.”
