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.
