Katsina: Rimi wind power plant to be completed in 2017 – Minister

0

February  24th, the Power Committee of the Nigerian national assembly visited the VERGNET wind power plant of Katsina. Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola who is the Federal Minister of Power, Works and Housing required  Vergnet to organize the visit of the committee as they are currently preparing 2017 budget and the Katsina wind farm project is part of it.

The Department is responsible for the development and supervision of some of the major publicly funded power plant projects.

That visit had a major media impact. The delegation, about 20 people,  was impressed by the size of the turbines but also by the number of journalists on site.

In line with the Government policy of promoting renewable energy, a  wind map for the entire country has been developed, indicating numerous viable sites for the deployment of wind turbines for power generation.

VERGNET is responsible for the construction of the 10-MW Katsina wind farm which represents 37 GEV MP C 275 kW mounted at a height of 55m on a tiltable tower in the northern region of Nigeria. It is the first wind farm in Nigeria.

The project is carried out by VERGNET and  the FEDERAL MINISTRY OF POWER (FMP). VERGNET has been  selected for the robustness of its turbines and their easy installation  and maintenance that requires lighter logistics than traditional wind  turbines. The project has fully is nearly achieved and will be  commissioned shortly.
