Enugu power station (Milhouse)
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Nigeria and coal|
The Enugu power station is a proposed 30-megawatt (MW) coal-fired plant in Enugu, Nigeria.
The project is planned to be located in the Nsukka area of Enugu, on land owned by the University of Nigeria at Nsukka. The map below shows the location of Enugu, but not the exact location of the proposed Enugu power station.
On May 12, 2015, Milhouse Engineering & Construction, Inc. signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Federal Republic of Nigeria and its Ministry of Power for coal mining on 20,000 acres in the Enugu region, including plans for up to 500 mw of coal-fired capacity by end-2018. On its website, Milhouse International says the plan is ultimately for a 300 MW coal plant.
In April 2017, it was reported Milhouse was recently granted a 30 MW license from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to produce power in Enugu.
With no developments since April 2017, it appears that the project is shelved.
