Yankari Power Ltd gets NERC’s generation licence

Published On: Thu, Mar 27th, 2014

The Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) yesterday issued an Embedded Generation Licence to the Bauchi State government to establish its 35megawatts (mw) Yankari Power Company.

While presenting the Licence to the state Governor, the NERC’s Chairman, Dr. Sam Amadi said, “For this project, we are satisfied with the technical, commercial, environmental issues, and having gone

through due process, the Commission gladly issued a licence authorising the state government to do that power and also serve its citizens.”

Amadi advised that the project should be emulated and executed as a model by other state governments and stakeholders to improve access to power.

Yankari Power is an expected 35mw embedded gas-fired Independent Power Plant (IPP) located in Gudun Industrial Layout of Bauchi in Bauchi state. Its licence process was initiated in March 2012 following the submission of a Licence Application.

NERC Commissioner, Legal, Licensing and Enforcement (LL&E), Dr Steve Andzenge said the company complied with the requirements stipulated in the NERC Regulations for Application for Licence, hence the Commission granted it the ‘Embedded Electricity Generation Licence.’

The Bauchi State Governor, Isah Yuguda in his remarks said the project would cost $200 million (N32,970 billion) to generate the planned 120mw within 18 months adding that, “I am happy today that we are the first State to get a licence to generate power.” He said, “We want to assure you that given the agreement that were signed with those who will construct the plant, that initially they have given us 18 months for the delivery of up to 120mw.”

“We believe in the first three months from the day of their clearing of site, we will deliver the 35mw; and given that, we have signed an MOU with Jos Electricity Distribution Company (JEDC), once we have

sufficient power, then we can sell the balance to other states and consumers.”

He noted that having considered the attendant gas supply constraints being experienced in power generation, Yankari Power is designed to use gas, crude oil and Low Pour Fuel Oil (LPFO) as options.

According to him, the project’s funding is included in the $1.6billion China EXIM Bank soft loan, payable within 25 years; counterpart funding from the Federal Government’s Electricity Intervention Fund from the Bank of Industry (BOI) and equity contributions from the state government.

@Darlman, Nigeria belongs to all citizens of Nigeria, WTH is wrong with you? Don't you know that if some parts of the country is underdeveloped and unproductive, it would bred insecurity that would affect the rest of the country? BTW, how does the oil and gas belong to you or biafra land, which as Tegh7 rightly stated, does NOT exist? Stupid mentality from people like Darlman is what keeps the country from making significant progress! Mtcheeewww!!!!!:bash:

I believe that all gas power plants should be located in the south and/or the niger delta. The cost of building over 1100 kilometers of gas pipelines that will connect from the niger delta all the way up north is enough to build a another power plant itself. Like I said before, the north is a good location for hydro electric dams and the south is good for gas fired power plants and it should remain that way.

@GAR3TH, now that's a smart suggestion, unlike stupid and tribalistic statement Darlman made. We need progressive suggestions and ideas that are NOT infantile and divisive! Sometimes I don't even know if it's worthwhile to reply people like Darlman.

In addition, the north is also has an abundance of LAND and an abundance of the SUN! So even though inefficient, they should have Solar farms and solar energy plants popping up all over the place. That will be much more environmentally responsible that building dams all over the place...

... AND probably cheaper.

And with the wide open spaces, even Wind should continue to be explored rather than installing LONG unsafe pipelines across the country. Look at the devastation in Asia (Taiwan / Philippines???) when one gas pipeline exploded in a city...
