National Integrated Power Plants (NIPP)
The National Integrated Power Project (NIPP) was conceived in 2004 as a major fast-track initiative to add significant new generation capacity to Nigeria’s electricity supply industry. The generation projects are accompanied by supporting transmission, distribution and gas transport infrastructure projects.
NIPP includes ten medium-sized gas fired power plants. Eight of these power plants were initially designed as open-cycle gas turbine (OCGT) power plants while the remaining two were designed as combined-cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plants. Seven of the OCGT plants have the capacity to be expanded to combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) configuration.
