The Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC) on Tuesday said that more power plants are underway and the next stage is to mobilize the contractors to site, The Nation reports.

The company which is in charge of the projects under the Nigeria Integrated Power Projects (NIPP) has secured procurement approval for the power projects from the Bureau of Public Procurement (BPP). Its Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Chiedu Ugbo disclosed this to reporters during the 20th Power Sector Stakeholders’ meeting in Owerri.

He said: “More power plants are coming like the ExxonMobil power plant and a number of other plants being conceived along that corridor. We have received all the approvals we needed from government including the Bureau of Public Procurement so the next stage now will be to mobilize the contractors to site and we are going to do that a few days from now. So that they will go back to site.”
