The NDPHC says this development will improve power supply to the two states

The Niger Delta Power Holding Company Ltd. (NDPHC), on Tuesday, said it has completed four projects that will boost electricity supply in Lagos and Kaduna states.

In a statement, Yakubu Lawal, the spokesperson for the company, said that the projects had been handed over to PHCN and Transmission Company of Nigeria.

According to the statement, the projects which were delivered on March, would strengthen transmission and distribution infrastructure in the country. It said that two of the projects were located in Oworonshoki and Ojo transmission stations in Lagos, while that of Kaduna were located in Zambia Crescent and Narayi sub-stations.

Lawal also said that Ojo and Oworonshoki sub-stations, which initially had transformers with installed capacity of 2×30 MVA, had been upgraded to 2×60 MVA each, and added that the projects were executed under the National Integrated Power Project (NIPP) Lot 11 contract.

James Olotu, the Managing Director of NDPHC, said the stations were part of the projects which government said it would deliver monthly.

“The company completed the projects on time to meet President Goodluck Jonathan’s promise to reform the power sector and ensure adequate power supply to Nigerians, as Vice President Namadi Sambo had also directed that NDPHC should revoke or re-assign any power project whose contractor failed to deliver within the specified period,” he said.
