The project, estimated to cost N1 billion, is designed to generate, transmit and distribute power to defined customers in the area. This was stated by the company’s Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Marc Hasenclever .

At a facility tour of the project at the weekend, Hasenclever said the component of the power project ranked among the best in the industry.

He said in addition to its synchronized nature, the plant is mobile and easy to maintain.

He explained that the power plant is primarily designed to supply power to WAPCO plc (Lafarge cement factory) in the area, under a contractual agreement of a four-year supply, with provisions for extension.

  The scope of the project, he said, includes supply, installation, operation and maintenance of the containerised gas-fired generating sets on a temporary rental basis to Lafarge Cement, WAPCO Nigeria Plc, at its cement manufacturing plant in Sagamu.

According to him, the scope of work of the plant also entails the supply of generator control systems assembly, generator spares and consumable, 415/11kv step-up transformers and the low voltage and medium voltage switchgears. The total project area is approximately 7,145 square meters.

“The plant configuration is made up of six units of gas generator sets and one diesel generator set. The diesel set is used for back start and emergency lighting of the power plant during periods of non-operation of the power plant. The diesel set generates two mega watts, while others generate 1.3mw respectively,” he explained.

He said the transformer was imported from India, stressing that it was assembled and installed in Nigeria through a combined local content team, even as he disclosed that the facility gets about 200,000 cubic meters per day of gas from the Nigerian Gas Company’s facility located within the vicinity of the network.

Hasenclever said the plant is built with the best safety standards, as it parades several features such as auto-alarm system, water sprinkle system and the auto trip-off system to forestall any dangerous situation.  

He expressed optimism over the proposed 100mw power plant under construction at Agbara area of the state.

Shoreline Power Company Limited is a subsidiary of Shoreline Energy International, an investment holding company operating in Africa with a diversified portfolio of holdings in construction, oil and gas, power, energy and engineering.
