Originally announced in 2011,[1] CPG planned the first 495 MW phase of the Okija power station to be up and running by 2021.[2][3] However, in May 2019, GPG was still securing funding.[4]

The three phases are:[1]

Phase 1: Construction of a gas fired power plant in an Open Cycle Gas Turbine (OCGT) configuration, with a power output of approximately 495MW (at ISO conditions).
Phase 2: Extension of the OCGT to a combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) configuration with a nominal power capacity of approximately 750MW (at ISO conditions), through the addition of HRSG and steam turbines.
Phase 3: Installation of a second CCGT with additional capacity of 750MW (at ISO conditions) to arrive at a plant with a total output of 1500MW (at ISO conditions).

In 2019 CPG said the commissioning date is now in late 2022.[5]
