Azura-Edo, the first of its kind in Nigeria

The Azura-Edo IPP is a 450MW 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 and construction started on 5 January 2016. Siemens and Julius Berger are the joint EPC contractors. We expect to start generating power by the end of 2018.

Azura-Nova, 100MW

Azura-Nova is a 100MW solar power plant currently being developed on a 200 hectare site, pictured above, in Katsina State, Nigeria. Subject to certain regulatory and financial milestones being targeted by the Federal Government of Nigeria and appropriate financial support being provided by the World Bank, we expect to reach financial close during 2017.  The construction period is around 12 months with commercial operations therefore being anticipated by late 2018.
