Management Training for Power Generation


The integrated power project was conceptualised by the President as an intervention project to comprehensively address the state of electricity infrastructure in the country. The NIPP is designed as a fast-track approach to improving the nation‘s electricity power supply through the implementation of Generation, Transmission, Distribution and Gas Supply projects.

The main thrust of the project is the design, manufacture and supply of seven new Gas Turbine Power Plants with the provision for conversion to combined-cycle operation. The Power Plants are to be managed under the Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC).

The NDPHC has identified the need to focus its management to the requirements of modern day Power Plant Management techniques in time for the commissioning of the new plants and their operation.
