New plant commissioned.

Nigerian President Obasanjo has commissioned the Geregu Gas Turbine Power Plant, the first brand new power plant funded and commissioned by his administration. Built at a cost of [euro] 195m ($256m), it has the capacity to generate 414 megawatts of electric power. According to Nigeria's minister of energy, Edmund Daukoru, two new plants in Omotosho and Papalanto, which will add an additional 670MWs to the national grid, are also to be commissioned shortly with seven further gas plants commissioned by the end of the year.

Nigeria is seeking private sector participation in the power sector in a bid to boost power generation from about 3,000MW to 10,000MW by the end of 2007. The government also plans to privatise state owned power companies.
