    LAFARGE Africa's 220MW power plant begins operations in October Lafarge Africa Plc says its newly constructed 220-megawatts power plant at Ewekoro, Ogun State, will commence operation in October.The project, reported to be worth $400 million (N78.8 billion), was executed in partnership with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and Wartsila.The Management of Lafargee said IFC would provide financial and advisory services for the project through InfraVentures, its Global Infrastructure Project Development Fund, while Wartsila would build and manage the power plant. They expressed the hope that the project would enhance 1.4 million households’ access to electricity and help mitigate energy problems of many firms in the country. They said power project remained one of the company’s contributions toward providing an enabling environment for new investments and the nation’s economic growth. The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) is the licensed embedded power companies to boost electricity supply in the country. Embedded power companies are not primarily power generating companies, but they generate extra power from their operations and sell the surplus to the national grid or the distribution companies. Africa and the Middle East contribute 18 per cent to the company’s turnover in 2014. Nigeria represents about three-and-half per cent of the company’s turnover from Africa in 2014.
