The lack of investment in power generation, transmission and distribution sectors has led to an inadequate and unreliable power supply in Nigeria. The Federal Government of Nigeria therefore initiated a major reform process, the priority of which was the delivery of reliable and adequate power to consumers. As an integral part of its efforts to combat the power blackouts that occur in the country, the Federal Government decided to invest heavily in power sector infrastructure. The NIPP was conceived in 2004 as a fast-track initiative to add significant new generation capacity to Nigeria’s electricity supply system together with associated electricity transmission and distribution and gas supply infrastructure.

NIPP comprises ten new power plants. Eight of these are open cycle gas turbine plants and the other two are combined cycle gas turbine plants.

Locations of the ten plants are shown on the map below.
