Ossiomo Power Will Supply 24-hour Electricity To Benin Airport, NAF Base – Obaseki.
Mr. Godwin Obaseki, the governor of Edo State, has announced intentions to use the government’s Ossiomo Power public-private partnership project to provide 24-hour energy to the Benin Airport and the Nigerian Air Force Base in the Benin capital.
On Wednesday, the governor stated that the administration was dedicated to enhancing the state’s partnership with security services in order to ensure that Edo is a secure place for investors to invest.
He stated that his government was already working to link the Benin Airport and the NAF facility to the Independent Power Plant, stressing that power to the NAF base will be provided in two phases.
The CCETC-Ossiomo Power Plant is an IPP that provides power to government buildings and streetlights in Benin, as well as the Emotan Gardens Estate, Edo Tech Park, Edo Modular Refinery, the John Odigie Oyegun Public Service Academy, and the Edo Creative Hub.
Ossiomo Power had declared that its new 40MW plant, devoted to powering the Benin Industrial and Enterprise Park, had gone live on December 29 and had already linked and powered the settlements of Ologbo and Obayantor in the state’s Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area.
Ossiomo Power now has a 95MW generation capacity, up from a 55MW facility that has been active since 2020.
