25,000MW Deal: FG, Siemens Sign Pre-Engineering Contract by TheRareGem1(f): 3:39pm On Feb 22
The Federal Government and Siemens have signed a contract for the pre-engineering phase of the Presidential Power Initiative that seeks to boost power generation in the country.

Our correspondent gathered that the award letters were signed last Thursday by Siemens Energy Nigeria and FGN Power Company, a special purpose vehicle created by the Federal Government for the project.

The Federal Government and Siemens AG had in July 2019 signed a Letter of Agreement on the Nigerian Electrification Roadmap, now Presidential Power Initiative, with the aim of ramping up electricity generation in the country to 25,000 megawatts in six years.

The Federal Executive Council, on July 29, 2020, approved the payment of €15.21m (N6,940,081,465.20) offshore and N1.708bn onshore as part of Nigeria’s counterpart funding for the power deal.

Our correspondent also gathered that with the issuance of the award letters, Siemens can now begin the pre-engineering scope of the project

“This award enables Siemens AG and Siemens Energy to drive forward this mega project, which will upgrade the electricity network to achieve operational capacity of 25,000 megawatts from the current average of around 4,500 MW, through a series of projects spanning three phases,” a document seen by our correspondent said.

The pre-engineering aspect will include engineering design works, specifications for onshore installation, commissioning works for the transmission and distribution systems, network development studies, power simulation, training, and support services.

It was learnt that the signing of the award letters was witnessed by the Chief of Staff to the President, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari; the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs Zainab Ahmed and the Minister of Power, Mr Saleh Mamman.

According to the Federal Government, the PPI’s investment objective is to realign and optimise the available capacities across generation, transmission and distribution sectors of the electricity industry.


The Managing Director, Siemens Energy Nigeria, Seun Suleiman, was quoted as saying, “Siemens Energy is committed to work with the Federal Government of Nigeria through the FGNPowerCo to see a successful implementation of the presidential power initiative. We have successfully carried out a similar project in Egypt.

“This project will transform the energy landscape of the country and we are grateful the government has entrusted us with this notable initiative. We are capable and we will deliver excellent results

They said the country is so broke to give us 24hours power supply. Yet half the amount of looted fund in a single term will give us power.

Lol, I thought they said we should be expecting 7,000mw this year, 11,000mw by 2023 and over 20000mw thereafter after the agreement in 2019.

This country just get as e be.

I can't remember the number of agreements and contracts that the Federal Government has signed since returning to civilian rule in 1999. But then, let's see how things will go.

Bubu and Co. should make the Late Abba Kyari proud. I hear he contacted COVID-19 while in Germany to seal this electricity deal.

Imagine this nonsense. embarassed can anything good ever come from this government. You are planning for 25000MW when the time is already up. Who will fund it and how will this come to reality when u couldn't even do anything when you supposed to start. Awon were, they thought everyone is almanjiri that they can deceive as they like. They are bidding for unrealistic project when we are sure nothing will eventually come out of it. Thunder fire all Una.

We hope it doesn't take like eternity to complete….

If only we'll keep hearing about the work as ongoing…. if this will not be the last time we'd hear about it; and it becomes another abandoned project for another government to still re•award, and the cycle continues.

It is pure scam, my borther; just another avenue to siphon money!
Just pre-engineering studies, and it is already taking several years and gulping a whooping 8biliion naira. How much would the actual construction and power generation cost and how long will it take?
A country that cannot generate 5,000MW since 1960 is signing contract for 25,000MW.
Yeye dey smell!

What happened to the 2007/2008 Agreement which Yar Adua signed with the same Siemens and the German Government to supply 6500 mw by 2020?
It seems like Siemens has a habit of ripping off Nigeria whenever half dead Katsina men are occupying Aso Rock.

Why is FG still in charge of electricity? Let the states/regions use their various resources to provide electricity.
