Representatives of Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC) led by Engr, Oyedele Ifeoluwa, Executive Director, Engineering and Technical Services, along with Rockson Engineering Limited and SEWA West Africa Limited visited Onne Port in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State on July 10, 2018 to inspect equipment shipped for the Combine Cycle of NIPP Alaoji Power Plant and Transmission Projects materials for Owerri 330/132/33kV Substation Project.
The purpose of the visit according to Engr. Oyedele was to physically ascertain that the Heat Turbine Boilers (HRSG) and other equipment procured by Rockson Engineering Limited, (the Contractor handling Alaoji Power Plant project) were actually on ground as claimed. These equipment were procured from AC BOILERS An Indian Company in China.
After inspecting the equipment at Onne Port, the team also visited the Alaoji Power Plant in Abia State to inspect the site where the Combine Cycle equipment were going to be kept.
At the site at Alaoji Power Plant, the team realsed that the contractor still had some work to do before moving the materials to site. The Contractor needs to work on the access road to the site and remove some old containers on the site to create more space for the erection of the basement where the equipment will be placed by TREVIS FOUNDATION.
Rockson Engineering Limited requested NDPHC to renew its Letter of Credit (LC) and pay up their outstanding invoices to enable them move the shipped equipment to site. According to the Contractor, these equipment have been at the Onne Port since October 2017 due to lack of funds.
