POWER SECTOR

  Power and energy are very critical in industrialization particularly and for the overall development of any society. Hardly can any sector of the economy grow without power. And so, in his quest to catapult Akwa Ibom State into an industrial hub in the gulf of Guinea, Governor Udom Emmanuel has vigorously tackled power generation in the state to boost commercial and domestic activities. Achievements recorded in the power sector include:

  •         Installation of “dead bus” technology which allows Akwa Ibom to be an Island of power supply during national grid outages.
  •         Configuration and commissioning of GT 2 to enable IPP operate at 80% of installed capacity as required under the CBN-NESI fund.
  •         Proposal to NERC for expansion of IPP license (from 191MW to 670MW).
  •         Completed electricity distribution asset evaluation to ascertain the number of transformers and customers on each transformer in every village, ward and communities across the three (3) Senatorial districts.
  •         Built structure/capacity for the effective operation of the technical and commercial activities of the power distribution sub-sector in the State.
  •         Collaboration by the management of Ibom Power with TCN and NERC for the creation of a work centre in the State – initial six (6) staff have been posted to the State.
