Tiga Power Plant in Kano, Nigeria, to be inaugurated soon

The Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said that the 10MW Tiga Power Plant in Kano is completed and will be inaugurated soon. Abba Anwar, Ganduje’s chief press secretary, said in a statement that the multimillion-naira power plant was undergoing pre-commissioning testing.

Anwar said that Governor Ganduje was happy with the pace of the work during his inspection visit to the Tiga Power Plant and Tamburawa Water Treatment Plant recently. He also appreciated the efforts of the state’s independent power company contractors and other stakeholders.

Remarks on Tiga Power Plant in Kano

He said, “The Tamburawa Water Treatment Plant and city street lights will be supported by the 10MW produced by Tiga station as was intended from the very beginning of the process.

With this, the water issue will be resolved forcefully. Our problems with the street lights will also soon be resolved. Although this project won’t go into operation until January 29, 2023. Challawa Goje Dam is now working on a project quite comparable to it that will produce six Megawatts.

The National Electricity Regulatory Commission has granted the two necessary operating licenses since June 2021. Specifically, the permits for producing and distributing electricity. As soon as all of the evacuation lines from Tiga to Tamburawa are completely finished, the power generated by Tiga will be evacuated to the Tamburawa Water Treatment Plant in the coming weeks,” he added.

More on the project

The power will be transmitted and generated at 33 kilovolts. However, he emphasized that “The power generated by Tiga Power Plant would be used for our Tamburawa Water Treatment Plant. As well as for our street lights, helping to reinforce the state’s security system at the same time.

The only task left to complete is the final accreditation from the Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency and Automation. Additionally, the contractors guarantee that it will be finished in the next five days.”

Before the end of his second term, Ganduje promised the locals that he would make every effort to ensure that he left a lasting legacy in every area of human endeavor.
