Nigeria, Japan Sign Power Cooperation Pact

The Nigeria National Electric Power Authority (NEPA) Saturday signed a pact of 62 million U.S. dollars with Japan’s power equipment company Marubent. Liyel Imoke, chairman of NEPA’s technical board, was quoted as saying that the Japanese company will install six new power generating turbines in order to reactivate two thermal power stations in Nigeria’s southeast oil-producing Delta region. The six new turbines, which are expected to be completed by December this year, would have a combined generating capacity of 150 megawatts of power added to the national grid. Imoke also disclosed that NEPA is expected to set up more thermal power stations so as to match for the target of 4,000 megawatts of electricity by the end of this year.
