Power generation at the Egbin Power Plant in Lagos State has dropped from 813 mw to 660 mw. An authoritative source at the plant indicated that the drop was as a result of the ongoing maintenance of Egbin lines by the Nigerian Gas Company (NGC).
The source said the plant was advised by NGC to step down its generation due to the ongoing repairs at its lines. “The ongoing maintenance at the NGC lines had stalled wheeling out of 1,000 megawatts generation to the national grid,’’ the source said.
According to the source, the development may also affect the general power generation output on the stations which receive gas from NGC.
