There’s a BRF Speech (on power sector progress) from an event last week that I’ll be sharing excerpts from in this thread:
BRF—“By the end of 2018 another 945 MW will be ready for supply:
(i) Azura 450MW (finished & producing)
(ii) AFAM IV 240MW (finished & awaiting commissioning)
(iii) Kaduna 215MW (undergoing pre-commissioning testing)
(iv) Kashimbilla 40MW (nearing completion)”
“Between 2019 and 2020, Zungeru 700MW, Okpai II 450MW, totalling 1,150MW should come into operation. These do not include about 7,000MW of installed but inoperative power plants constrained either by Gas supply or transmission capacity or both, about which action is being taken.”
“It does not include Independent Power Plants now under construction in 9 federal universities, with a plan to scale to 37, neither does it include 15 independent power projects targeting major markets now under construction to power 85,000 shops and small businesses.”
BRF—“We have recovered 690 containers of power equipment abandoned at the Port as part of the legacy of the previous 16 years, and deployed them to the sub-stations they were originally meant for.”
BRF—“Currently, there are not less than 90 transmission substation projects at different stages of construction.”
“This year we have completed a few, and last week we commissioned Damaturu sub-station in Yobe, and Ejigbo sub-station in Lagos will be commissioned today, and so will the Ilase tourist beach in Lagos, which will soon be connected to grid power for the first time in its history.”
BRF—“We have 7000MW of power operationally available but distribution can only take 5000MW. We have engaged with Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN) to offer the rights to take the 2000MW & enunciated the Eligible Customer Policy for consumers who take up to 2MW & beyond.”
BRF—“The Eligible Customer Policy (for consumers who take up to 2MW and beyond) took effect recently, 5 major industries have connected and we have dozens of new applications being processed.” #IncrementalPower
“For meter shortages, we have enunciated a policy of licencing Meter Asset Providers, independent of the Discos but who will be supplying their customers. 180 applications have been received.”—BRF
BRF—“Off-grid supply – we have enunciated a Mini Grid Regulation that allows people to build and distribute up to 1MW under licence, and up to 100kw without licence.”
BRF—“Distribution Expansion - In order to support distribution equipment capacity, government as a shareholder of the Discos is investing about N72B in distribution equipment at the 33kv and 11kv points of the value chain.” #IncrementalPower
