Fresh hurdles face N4bn Katsina 10mw wind power project

Work remains stalled at the Katsina 10 megawatts wind power farm at Lamber Rimi in Rimi Local Government Area of the State, with a power ministry official saying a report awaits a presidential nod for its completion, Daily Trust reports.

The N4.4 billion project was awarded to a French firm, Messrs Vergnet SA in 2010 and was scheduled for completion in 2012, but it has been suffering from several issues that made the completion date unachievable and stalled progress. Despite assurances of completion before May this year and eventual commissioning by June, 2015, work is yet to continue at the site four months behind the new target.

Checks showed that the change in administration dealt another setback to the project as the new government had to be briefed before taking up existing power projects. A top official at the ministry who spoke in confidence said a letter awaits presidential nod for the plant to be completed and put into use.

He disclosed that the project would be put in the 2016 power budget for its completion even as its completion status remains at 95 per cent. “Every other equipment needed is there. The transformer that would be operated for it has come in and is already in Lagos,” he added.
