Afam VI Power Plant Gets UN Carbon Emissions Award

Afam Power Plant

The Afam VI Power Plant in Rivers State has been recognized and rewarded by the United Nations for reducing carbon emissions through environment- friendly operations.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change issued the 650 megawatts plant some 541,537 Certified Emission Reduction credits for its first crediting period between November 1 2012 and October 31, 2013.

This makes the plant, built and operated by the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Joint Venture (SPDC), the first energy efficient project on power generation registered from Nigeria and also the first UN-registered Clean Development Mechanism initiative in the Shell Group.

The Afam VI is a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine plant, which generates electricity from gas turbines and uses the waste heat to produce steam and generate additional power via a steam turbine.
