Federal Ministry of Power, Works and Housing
To address the gap in electricity connectivity in the northern states of the country. As the power generation infrastructure is at a very nascent stage in these states, it is increasingly important for the government to execute such projects so that there will be a stable mechanism that will create sustainable energy infrastructure in the long run.
The power generated from the proposed Jibiya Dam SHEP will be evacuated to the existing 33KV substation at Jibiya town through a 2 km long, 33 KV line.
Information will be published as soon as it is available.
To attract private sector technical expertise and financial resources for the generation and distribution of power to industrial and domestic consumers, with a finance-build-own-operate-train-transfer model. This model leverages the private sector to address ever-growing energy needs through the implementation of infrastructure projects that will provide basic amenities to the poor and lift them socially and economically. The projects will initiate the exploitation of the abundant renewable energy sources across the country to increase the footprint of households with access to electricity in Nigeria.
The project involves many parties, including the government, investor, power off-taker, EPC firm, financiers, and other parties. The main stakeholders are the government, promoter/concessionaire, power off-taker, lenders/financiers, and the public. Consultations have been undertaken with these parties to determine their needs and to ensure that as much as possible stakeholder expectations will be met. An Environmental Impact Analysis Audit was also conducted.
Jibiya Dam was designed in 1987 and completed in 1989 to support irrigation and water supply. The landscape at the dam site is sub-desert except in the rainy season. It is located in a semi-arid part of Nigeria where rainfall hardly extends beyond four months, with most watercourses and rivers dry for eight months a year. The rehabilitation of the existing power plants and construction of new ones require huge investments. These sums cannot be funded and directed by the FGN alone because the massive investments required to close the yawning gap are beyond the means available to it.
