The U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) has invited submission of proposals from interested U.S. firms that are qualified to develop a feasibility study to assess the technical and financial requirements for building a 275 MW simple cycle gas-fired power plant for Royal Power Integrated & General Services Limited in Nigeria.
In order to meet its rising energy demands, the Government of Nigeria (GoN) has developed the Vision 2020 Initiative with the goal of adding 40,000 MW in on-grid and off-grid generation capacity. With the privatization of Nigeria's distribution companies (DISCOs), the GoN has liberalized its power sector to encourage the entrance of independent power producers (IPPs).
Royal Power Integrated & General Services LTD is a Nigerian registered independent power producer with expertise in the power generation industry and as such, must obtain a generation license from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
The Feasibility Study will support Royal Power in obtaining the required power generation license to facilitate a purchase power agreement with Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trading (NBET) for the construction of a 275 MW simple cycle gas-fired power plant.
The Feasibility Study would help Royal Power Integrated & General Services LTD in addressing the technical and financial feasibility analyses that are required to obtain a power generation license from the Federal Government of Nigeria to support the implementation and operation of a 275 MW simple cycle gas-fired power plant located in Lagos State, Nigeria.
The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a $667,000 grant from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA).
