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.
