The project, which was executed in collaboration with General Electric and the Federal Government, will boost
power generation and supply in the country.
The project is expected to add 966 MW of electricity to the country’s national grid.
During his keynote address at the commissioning of the Afam 3 Fast power 240-megawatt (MW) turbine Osinbajo, noted that the Afam 3 Fast Power project was executed by Transcorp Power, which is a viable investor in Nigeria’s electricity sector.
According to him, the company’s Ughelli power plant has just been delisted from the privatization monitoring initiative of the Bureau of Public Enterprise (BPE) and has shown itself to be an outstanding investor in the country’s power sector.
