50% of NIPPs power stranded over distribution hiccups



Electricity Generation Companies (GenCos) under the National Integrated Power Project (NIPP) have over 50 percent of their power generation stranded due to the poor distribution network to wheel it to consumers, Daily Trust can reveal.

The NIPPs parent company, Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC) which built, operates and maintains the 10 NIPP GenCos, have a combined design capacity of 5,453 megawatts (MW) with 4,774MW installed capacity.

NDPHC said it has drastically combated gas constraints, but it is now facing the lack of adequate distribution facilities and networks for the 11 Distribution Companies (DisCos) to take more electricity to customers in spite of the huge generation capability and the incessant outages being recorded in Nigeria.
