Okija power station
|Part of the Global Gas Plant Tracker, a Global Energy Monitor and Center for Media and Democracy project.|
Okija power station is a proposed 1,500-megawatt (MW) gas-fired power plant in Anambra State, Nigeria.
The map below shows the approximate location of the power station in Okija, Anambra State, Nigeria.
The three phases are:
- 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.
