Cross River Set to Complete 21 Megawatts Power Plant by February 2017


The Cross River State Governor, Senator Ben Ayade, has set a February 17, 2017 deadline for the delivery of a 21 megawatts power plant being built in the state

A statement by the state government on Wednesday said the power project was one of the fruits of the several memoranda of understanding signed with foreign investors during the governor’s several investment trips round the world. The governor, who spoke during a routine inspection of ongoing construction work at the site along the Parliamentary Extension, Calabar, described the power plant as a new, cost-effective technology.

He said; “We have set a February 17, 2017 deadline to deliver uninterrupted 24/7 power supply to Calabar metropolis. With this singular effort, Calabar will be the first capital city to have uninterrupted power supply in the country”. The governor said the state was working in partnership with a Brazilian/American firm, which was also collaborating with the Cross River State Power Company to establish and deliver on the independent embedded power plant.
