Power Outages to Get Worse as Shiroro , Sapele Power Stations Close Down

The widespread blackout being experienced in the country got worse on
Tuesday as Shiroro and Sapele II power stations were shut down,
bringing the number of stations in the country shut down to 10.

Punch Newspaper reports that Shiroro has a capacity to generate 600mw while Sapele II has a
capacity to generate 225mw. While Shiroro was shut down for maintenance
and repair work on faulty units, Sapele II was shut down due to
inadequate supply of gas.

Total national power generation stood at 2,774.2MW on Tuesday, down from 3,657.5MW on March 31.

Generation from Egbin, the nation’s biggest power station, was
limited to 415MW due to gas constraints, down from 1,085MW on March 15.

Shell’s Afam VI power plant generated the highest megawatts of electricity at 418MW as of 6am, the data showed.

The shut down of both power stations has exacerbate the worsening
blackout being experienced across the country. Eight power plant had
earlier been shut down.

The plants which do not currently generate any megawatts of
electricity included Sapele, Delta State, whose installed capacity was
put at 240MW; Olorunsogo II in Ogun State, with a capacity of 625MW;
Rivers IPP (180MW) and Trans-Amadi (75MW), both in Rivers State.

Others are Geregu I in Kogi; Afam IV & V in Rivers, and A.E.S and Asco, whose installed capacity were not given.

Sapele’s units were said to be shut due to gas constraints, tripping, maintenance and major overhaul, among other reasons.

The Rivers IPP’s unit GT1 was out due to gas constraints, while
Trans-Amadi’s GT1 and 4 units were out due to line constraints; GT2 due
to gas constraints and GT3 undergoing maintenance.
