Abuja - The Federal Government on Wednesday directed the federal ministries
of power, transport and the contractors handling the Kaduna thermal power plant
to complete the project by December.
Vice President Namadi Sambo gave the directive at a meeting on the Kaduna
215 megawatts power plant with the contractors, project consortium, consultants
and officials of the two ministries.
The vice president, who requested for a detailed programme of work for the
project, said it was to ensure the project's inauguration on schedule.
Sambo frowned at requests made by the consortium for variation of optional
items outside the scope of work and urged the Ministry of Power to conclude the
arrangement for the fuel storage tank for the plant.
The vice president directed Rockson Engineering, one of the companies in the
consortium, to provide their records of procurements for the balance of plant
(BoP) and schedule of deliveries and commence without delay, the civil works
and construction for the storage tank.
The consultant to the project, Messrs Stiag Ecotec West Africa, while
presenting its report, noted that Skipper, the contractor to the substation,
had progressed well and that work was currently at 82 percent completion.
