1st phase of LADOL’s 50MW power project comes on stream next year—Jadesimi

The Managing Director of Lagos Deep Offshore Logistics (LADOL), Dr. Amy Jadesimi has revealed that apart from the recent success story of fabrication and integration of local components on the Korean built Egina FPSO, the company is at the verge of delivery a 50 MW power plant on the Free Trade Zone.
In an interview, she said “What we are focusing on now in LADOL is the emerging delivery of a 50 megawatts power plant which we’re building in phases.
According to her, “The first phase will come on stream next year, 2019 and then the second phase will depend on the demand we see on the free zone but we think within the next three years, the second phase will probably be required but the second phase will depend on demand. The funds we’re committing are substantial.”

So, we’re looking at recycling and making the second phase more of a green solution than the first phase.
Dr. Jadesimi averred that “The first phase is gas and then the second phase will be probably a little bit of gas and then a mixture of sustainable solution”.
