Electricity consumers are in for a better days as the sixth turbine belonging to Egbin Power Plc comes on stream in January, next year, The Nation reports.
It will bring the total electricity megawatts to be generated by the plant to 1,320. Already, five of the six turbines generate about 1,100MW. But with the rehabilitation work on the sixth turbine billed for completion next month, the plant would be generating 1,320 megawatts of electricity.
Minister of Power Babatunde Fashola said the development implies that the plant, for the first time in 20 years, would be producing at its installed capacity of 1,320 megawatts for the benefits of the citizenry. Speaking in Lagos, during a meeting with the owners of power plant, concerned individuals and groups, Fashola said works were in advance stage to repair the transformer used in powering the sixth turbine.
