The Chairman of Egbin Power Plc, Kola Adesina has unveiled the company’s plans to ramp up its capacity (1320 megawatts) by an additional 1350 megawatts to arrive at a total of 2670 megawatts by 2019.
He also noted that Egbin Power is planning to establish an energy industrial cluster within its territory that would play host to interested industries who are to receive direct electricity supply from the power generating plant.
“Our plan for Egbin is not just to maintain the 1320mw capacity, we are planning to double the capacity. We also have a broad programme to make Egbin an industrial hub, whereby companies with future global supportive export capacity can come in and set up their factories knowing fully well that their business will enjoy efficient power supply. The industrial hub will take the form of an export-processing zone. We want to encourage industrial activities taking place in Egbin,” he said.
