Sahara Group Power, established in 2001, the company’s core business lies in the acquisition, repair, maintenance and operation of power plants. Between 2001 and 2004, the company played an active role in the Emergency Power Projects embarked on by the then Nigerian Electric Power Authority (NEPA) presently known as the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).
In 2006, the company partnered with a major international power company, Korean Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), to enable it to provide a wider range of solutions to the entire power sector chain throughout the region.
The resulting company KEPCO Energy Resource Ltd. (KERL) carried out major repairs to two boilers in Egbin Power Plant, Lagos State. Egbin has an installed capacity of 1320MW, but in 2006 could only generate 880MW. The work carried out by KERL added 440MW, restoring the plant to full capacity.
KERL is presently engineering a 1350MW Power Plant, to be installed in the Lagos area. The plant when built will consist of 3 – 450MW combined cycle power blocks.
NG Power Limited, an affiliate of KERL, is presently carrying out operation and maintenance of Omoku Power Plant. The Plant is a 150MW generating station which consists of six open cycle gas turbines, each with an installed generating capacity of 25 MW. The gas turbines are GE Nuovo Pignone model MS 5001 PA. The generating station came online in December 2006 with four turbine units at the start, while the other two came up a year later. The power generated is transmitted directly to the control center in Port-Harcourt (Ogindipa) via 132 KVA feeder lines. In addition, the power station directly exports power to neighboring communities of Okposi, Ndoni and Kirigene, among others.
