Agu-Amorji power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Nigeria and coal|
The Agu-Amorji power station was a proposed 115-megawatt (MW) coal-fired plant in Nigeria.
The map below shows the location of Enugu state, Nigeria, but not the exact location of the Agu-Amorji power station.
In 2008, the federal government issued its first license to Minaj Holdings Limited for a coal-fired plant to generate a total capacity of 115 MW of electricity.
In 2011, South Korea's Daewoo was chosen by Total E&C Nigeria Ltd as the preferred bidder for a US$733.8 million order to build a 115 MW coal-fired power plant in Agu-Amorji Nike, in the Enugu-East Local Government area of Enugu State. (Related news was behind a paywall, so it is unclear if the update was related to the Minaj Holdings Limited license or a separate proposal.)
An April 2015 document confirmed that Minaj Holdings Ltd held a 115 MW NERC license at Agu-Amorji Nike.
With no recent news, the project appears to be abandoned.
