Photos: Ongoing construction of Maiduguri Gas Power Plant by NNPC
The new 50MW Gas Power Plant by NNPC inside Maiduguri will be completed by November this year with Greenvillle signed on to supply 170 metric tonnes of Gas, using 22 Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) trucks daily from Rivers State to Borno.
The LNG trucks will travel 1,700km from Rumuji in Rivers to Maiduguri daily, until the AKK project is launched next year whereby Grenville will begin running a shorter distance from the new Kano gas depot to Maiduguri. This 50MW turbine is said to be the best in the world.
In the event of a Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) supply-chain disruption, a gas reservoir is being constructed that would sustain the turbine for at least 10 running days.
