Commisioning Of Unit 6 (1320 MW) Egbin Power Station -live On Nta by OLADD: 12:16pm On Feb 21, 2015
Yesterday, a quantum leap was recorded in our quest for stable power supply with the commissioning of 750MW Olorunsogo Power generation station in Ogun State. Today, still in the spirit of confining power outage to perpetual obscurity, the President and Commander In Chief of Nigerian Armed Forces, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan is presently commissioning another power station in Ikorodu, Lagos State. The project which came to fruition as a result of Mr.President's commitment to effectively lighten up Nigeria is the largest in West Africa and will add about 1320 MW of power supply to the national grid. Let's celebrate an achiever.

That's one of the reasons OBJ wants to pull him down by all means but God will not allow him.

This is commendable. I hope this commission with immediate effect on our power supply. Let's not hear it'll take another couple of years before we feel the effect. Commissioning means ready to use meaning right now Nigeria can confidently boast of an additional 1320MW. If we add yesterday's commissioning Nigeria has an additional 2000mw electricity production. This is what this means right?

Which achievement?. Egbin is more than 27 years old. I did excursion there during Buharis regime and NEPA Nigerian engineers were taking control.of a very sophisticated plant. Everything went to dregs with IBB regime

This is a RE COMMISSIONING. That is they are commissioning again an already commissioned expansion of just one additional unit of a 30 year old plant.

When Buhari enters office again, the quality of education will improve and you guys will learn to reason critically and stop falling for LIES from politicians who are less intelligent than you.

For now please enjoy your RE-COMMISSIONING of one of the units of a 30 year old power plant by a lame duck president watching himself leaving office.

Yes, that's what it means. However, there's a caveat here, all hands must be on deck to fight against agents of backwardness who have been vandalising gas pipelines thereby preventing constant supply of gas to power the plants. The Minister of Power was almost in tears while narrating the destructive tendencies of the vandals in his presentations penultimate week. Going by his words, some disgruntled elements had always gone on prowl to sabotage improved supply of electricity by blocking gas supply maybe, to serve as a campaign tool for those who wants to hijack power by all means. The cheering news is that, according to the minister, the days of the vandals and their sponsors are numbered..

Egbin has been sold so we dont know what Jonathan is still doing commissioning somebody's private expansion to his property.
Profit motive should be driving the business so the power plants should be expanding on their own to grow their business.

I want light in my house. I am not interested in using generator to watch our president commission refurbished power projects. Give us light. Gaskia. I don't care how you do it. If you can steal the moon, the sun and all the stars from God and use it to give us light, It is okay by me. I just want light and not power projects that don't produce light.

OP, this is the commissioning of just a single unit, out of 6, of the 1320MW plant.

The unit been commissioned is about 220MW, and has just been built after many years by the new private owners of the plant who have invested about #50billion in totally rehabilitating it, thereby functionally raising the entire plant to its 1320MW capacity for the 1st time, all under gej power reform program

Egbin Power plant was first commissioned in 1986 but due to neglect by successive regimes, it has never worked at optimum capacity. Agreed only a unit was newly added by GEJ's adminstration but the plant's entire rehabilitation and turnaround was equally Jonathan Govt's initiative.

BIG LIES.
Egbin was always Nigeria's most sophisticated plant. No government has ever neglected it, not even Abachas's which was Nigeria's worst government. Please if you are too young, read. read and read. Egbin has always been strategic because.of Lagos which was federal capital and economic power house.
The plant has had three explosions in its life that were all front page news.
Because of its importance it was the only plant that was well monitored by NEPA.
The whole point here is the deception of rash commissioning of plants to deceive the public when actual power generation is still 5000MW same level Yaradua left and $8.2bn spent.

I have worked for ROCKSON engineering on some of these NIPP projects. our Politicians usually commission a power

station that is 40% complete during electioneering times just to get the attention of the people.

My house for PH never see public power supply in the last six days

#GEJ laudable achievement is giving some persons headache and sleepless night. grin

Yesterday, it was Olorunsogo Power Plant phase 2 now generating 750megawatts, today is Egbin Power Plant Unit 6 generating 220megawatts, both together give us 970megawatts pushing our total national megawatts to 4970.

The egbin power plant will bring about 16% power improvement to Lagos state, and some ingrates will come here and insult the president. I just wish GEJ will do to you guys what OBJ did to Idris Aldukadrem.

According to him, with the unit now generating at full stream, Egbin is currently in the final stages of a bilateral agreement to supply the 220MW to Ikeja Electricity Distribution Plc (Ikeja Electric) and Eko Distribution Company, a development that is set to yield about 16 per cent additional power supply to Lagos. He explained that the company considers the rehabilitation of ST Unit 6 to be a major
breakthrough, noting that huge resources were deployed into achieving a complete tear down overhaul of the unit.
www.vanguardngr.com/2015/01/egbin-power-plant-rehabilitated-produce-220mw/


The federal, states and local governments in the country have collectively spent $8.26 billion on power projects being built under the National Integrated Power Project (NIPP), through the Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC). Speaking on Friday at the official inauguration of the 750 megawatt capacity Olorunsogo Power Plant phase 2, which was built under the NIPP, President
Goodluck Jonathan said the collective funding of the projects was in line with the agreement reached by the three tiers of government at the National Economic Council (NEC) to finance critical power infrastructure development project from the Excess
Crude Account. The President, who will today also inaugurate the 220 megawatt capacity Unit 6 of Egbin Power Station in Lagos, said that out of the $8.26 billion spent on NIPP, the Olorunsogo Power Station gulped $650 million.
www.thisdaylive.com/articles/fg-states-lgs-spend-8-26bn-on-nipp-projects/202324/

OBJ spent $16billion to generate 2000megawatts and GEJ is spending $8.6billion of which $650million of the $8.6billion has generated 750 megawatts. Using a layman calculation Obj $16billion would have genarated 21,000 megawatts ($16billion/750megawatts), and he has the gods to accuse GEJ of corruption and running a mediocre government. We nor blame Obj.

Those who can see the visible differences between GEJ and past leaders will continue to shout #GEJtill2019.

There are some yesterdays we just cannot forget, and Obj's own are some of them.

Chief, take the pain to find out if Egbin had ever operated at expected optimum capacity. You just mentioned that series of explosions had taken place there in recent times. But do us a favour by stating the operating capacity of the thermal plant in the last two decades.
