The Minister of Power, Mr. Sale Mamman (the “Minister”), has declared that the 40 megawatt Kashimbila Hydro-Power Plant in Taraba state (the “Kashimbila Plant”) will be ready for commissioning in the coming weeks.
The Minister stated that the Kashimbila Plant will provide electricity to several local communities and boost power supply in the country and that he is “very impressed” with the job done by the contractors.
Speaking in the same vein, the Minister of State for Power, Mr Godwin Jedi-Agba said that he was happy with the level the project had attained, reiterating the commitment of the administration to deliver adequate power supply to boost the economy.
The Kashimbilla Plant will cater to the power needs of about 80% of Taraba state’s South Senatorial District and also serve as a corridor for the evacuation of power from the 3,050MW Mambilla hydro-power plant through the ongoing 132KV Takum and Wukari Substations. The Kashimbila Plant could also provide a power solution to the rural electrification projects located along the Benue-Taraba belt that could not be connected to the national grid.
