History Made In Abia State As Tinubu Inaugurates Geometric Power Plant Today

President Bola Tinubu will today officially open the first integrated power plant in Nigeria, the Geometric Power Plant, located in the Osisioma Industrial area of Aba. Aba is the commercial center of Abia State.

On Sunday, February 25, 2024, at 3:39 p.m., Turbine 3 was turned on in anticipation of the Power plant’s activation. This event caused a great deal of joy among the engineers from Geometric Power and KS Energy.

President Bola Tinubu was originally supposed to inaugurate the 181-megawatt Geometric Power facility on Saturday, February 24.

Nine out of the seventeen Local Government Areas in Abia State will receive energy from the new plant thanks to Aba Power Limited Electric, the country’s newest electricity distribution company (DISCO).

Geometric Power has invested over $800 million in its integrated power project, which is considered the largest investment in the South-East Zone of Nigeria. This project involves the construction of a 27-kilometer natural gas pipeline that runs from Owaza in Ukwa West LGA, Abia State, to the Osisioma Industrial Layout in Aba.

“We have, in addition, installed 150,000 kilometres of cables and wires and installed four new power substations, as well as refurbished three others inherited from the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN”, explained Ben Caven, managing director, Geometric Power Ltd.

Professor and former minister of Power Bart Nnaji created the Geometric Power Group.

When former World Bank President James Wolfensohn and Nigeria’s Finance Minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala visited Aba on March 17, 2004, Nnaji began the integrated project after learning that the biggest issue facing large and medium-sized industrialists in Aba, which is known as the hub of indigenous manufacturing in Nigeria, was the city’s unstable power supply.
