Azura-Edo, the first of its kind in Nigeria

The Azura-Edo IPP is a 461MW Open Cycle Gas Turbine power station, the first project initiated by Azura Power. It is Phase 1 of a 1,500MW IPP facility being developed near Benin City in Edo State, Nigeria and is located on a 100 hectare site, large enough to accommodate future expansion of the power plant.  After over six years in development,  financial close for Phase 1 was reached on 28 December 2015, construction started on 5 January 2016 and the plant started operating in May 2018, eight months ahead of schedule. Siemens and Julius Berger were the joint EPC contractors.

Other Projects

We signed a JDA with a local developer in December 2017 which has granted Azura rights to the majority of the project equity in a 100MW gas IPP in Mozambique. We have also secured the opportunity to develop a second royalty gas-fired power project nearby. In addition to this, we have been working on two other projects in the country - another greenfield 290MW combined-cycle gas-fired power project and a gas engine power plant that has been operating for several years.

The team has also been working diligently on other projects in both East and West Africa where we expect to make announcements during the coming year.
