Azura Power is a world-class power company whose single ambition is to provide electricity to millions of people across Africa. 

Azura Power's focus is on base-load power plants across Africa and as well as renewables in Nigeria.  Our first power project is the Azura-Edo IPP, a 461MW open cycle gas turbine power station and the first phase of a 1,500MW power plant facility near Benin City, in Edo State, Nigeria. The project reached financial close on 28 December 2015, construction started on 5 January 2016, was completed eight months ahead of schedule in May 2018 and we have been operating successfully since. We are currently developing and assessing a number of other power related projects in Nigeria and other markets in Africa based upon our assessment of the region's substantial fuel, evacuation and regulatory constraints.

Our vision is to become the leading power generation company in Africa enabling us to generate power to millions of people across the continent. 

We take responsibility for bringing about change and making an impact in everything we do. We see ourselves as being the catalyst and platform for attracting significant private capital and skilled and committed people into the power industry so that we, together with other power producers and governments, can transform the sector and generate the electricity that is so desperately needed.  Within the next three to five years, we expect to have invested up to $500 million of equity in power assets that will add over 2GW of power across the African continent. 


Our strategy is to deliver value to all of our stakeholders and communities through the creation of a 2GW+ diversified portfolio of IPP assets.  This will be executed through ...

Building and retaining a world-class, highly incentivised management team who share a strong purpose for making a positive impact;

Investing at different stages of the project lifecycle from development through to operations with a focus on cashflow generation;

Leveraging our knowledge and experience to Invest in people and countries across different countries in Africa; and

Developing a strong and sustainable pipeline for future growth.

Our values represent the way we feel, behave and work. At Azura, everyone has a clear and strong purpose of why we are here and what makes us tick.  Aligning that purpose - of the individual and the company - is one of the most important factors in motivating and incentivising our people. This is inspired by a positive attitude and energy which is ultimately what drives the success of our business. We also encourage our people to be aware of their social responsibilities and have committed to invest in a selective number of programs in areas such as community infrastructure, childcare and education and art and culture.
