Lafarge Cement WAPCO Nigeria Plc says it has concluded plans to sell 30MW of electricity from its power plant in Ewekoro, Ogun State, Nigeria.

Lafarge’s Country Manager, Jean-Christopher Barbant made the remarks during a pre-inauguration media facility tour of Ewekoro 11 plant.

He said Lafarge currently use 60MW out of the 90MW plant to fire its plants thereby leaving the remaining 30MW available which it has chosen to supply to the national grid to boost power generation in the country.

The 90MW power plant, which was commissioned on June 30, this year by Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has six 15MW stations with a dual-firing system that can use both gas and liquid fuel.

Barbant, who said the company stopped depending on public power supply since the plant was commissioned, added that adequate provisions have been made to sustain it for longer period.
