The 700 MW (9,40,000 hp) Zungeru Hydroelectric Power Project, which is located across the Kaduna River, near the town of Zungeru, in Niger State, in northwestern Nigeria, is set to be commissioned in 2022.

The project will be commissioned in phases, the first of which with the capacity to generate a total of 175 MW will be commissioned in Q1/2022. The second, third, and fourth phases are expected to be commissioned respectively in Q2, Q3, and Q4 of 2022.

Zungeru Hydroelectric Power Project will be the second-largest hydroelectric power project in the West African country behind the 760 MW (1,020,000 hp) Kainji hydroelectric power project. It will also be one of the biggest power projects in the continent to secure preferential loan facilities from the Export-Import Bank (Exim Bank) of China.

The project will generate 2.64 billion kWh of electricity annually to meet 10% of Nigeria’s domestic electricity needs.

Nigeria plans to concession the 700 MW Zungeru hydroelectric plant that is been built on the Kaduna river in the northern state of Niger, and which is set to become operational by the end of 2021.

It has therefore through the National Council on Privatisation (NCP) and the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), invited expressions of interest (EoIs) from qualified technical advisers to provide transaction advisory services for the award of the concession.

Interested parties are expected to submit their bids by 31 March 2021.

Executed by a consortium of China National Electric Engineering Company (CNEEC) and Sinohydro, the project is so far over 87 percent complete. Its main components include a 101 mtr high, 1,090 mtr wide roller-compacted concrete (RCC) gravity dam, a clay core rockfill dam, an underground powerhouse equipped with four 175 MW units, a tailrace channel, and two switchyards on both banks of the river.

The project, which upon completion will be the second biggest hydroelectric dam in the West African Country after the 760 MW Kainji hydropower dam, is designed to generate 2,630 GWh/year, equivalent to around 10% of the country’s supply requirements.

CNEEC-Sinohydro Consortium, has made a confirmation that the Zungeru hydroelectric power plant project in Nigeria is now 47 percent complete. CNEEC is in-charge of the development of the 700 MW power plant project.

This power plant is made up of four units of 175 MW each. Expectations are that it will be complete by 2020 following the power plant’s launch which was in 2013.

Katsina wind power plant, 40MW Kasimbilla power plant and the 222 MW Gbarain plant in Bayelsa State.
