Project Title – CPG-Okija IPP

CPG obtained a generating license from NERC to develop a 495MW power plant on 31.9Ha of land owned by CPG. The company hired AF-Consult Switzerland to be the Owner's Engineer for the project. AF-Consult completed the conceptual design for the plant, and completed the tender documents for EPC Selection. These documents will be made available for interested EPC bidders to download directly from this website by July 2018, or from the company's Lagos or Abuja offices.

The project is being developed in 3 phases;

  • Phase 1: Construction of a gas fired power plant in an Open Cycle Gas Turbine (OCGT) configuration, with a power output of approximately 495MW (at ISO conditions) by September 2015.
  • Phase 2: Extension of the OCGT to a combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) configuration with a nominal power capacity of approximately 750MW (at ISO conditions), through the addition of HRSG and steam turbines.
  •  Phase 3: Installation of a second CCGT with additional capacity of 750MW (at ISO conditions) to arrive at a plant with a total output of 1500MW (at ISO conditions).

Plant Location
The plant site is a 31.9 hectares of virgin land wholly owned by CPG, and is situated along the Onitsha–Owerri express road, about 15km from Nnewi (one of Nigeria's major industrial and economic centers), and 25km from Onitsha (another major economic area).

The Project site is bordered on the East by the Ulasi River and on the West by the Onitsha-Owerri express road.
