Egbin Plant Description

gbin power station is a The Six 220 Megawatts (MW) Steam Turbines
self-contained gas and oil
fired steam electric generat-
ing station, with an associated
housing colony for staff, owned by the
Egbin Power PLC, LagosNigeria.

The station has an initial capacity of

1320MW with provision for future ex-
pansion. The initial capacity consists of
six steam generators -turbine genera-
tors of 220MW nominal capacity each,
housed in a single support structure
and enclosure.

Each unit comprises a steam generator

with reheat and super heat cycles, an
extraction steam turbine with automatic
run-up and supervisory systems and a
hydrogen cooled generator with auto
synchronization and voltage regulation.

Combustion air is provided by two 50%

duty forced draft fans, the feed water
cycle comprises a steam surface con-
denser with air ejectors, tube cleaning
equipment, two 100% condensate ex-

Employee Management
Development and Motivation
Standardization and simplification of
performance management process
A new performance management framework
was introduced in 2014 in order to promote a
performance-driven culture within the organization.
The performance cycle consists of the goal setting
exercise, a mid-year review and the end of year

In 2015, targeted efforts were made to eliminate com-

plexities and ensure better compliance through HR
Representatives, departmental meetings, email com-
munication and circulation of quick references and
relevant FAQs. Plans are being made to explore full
automation of the performance management process
for seamless documentation and reviews.

Dedicated initiatives for high potential staff

The organization understands the need to identify,
recognize, reward and keep motivating outstanding
performance of staff members, and as such is initi-
ating programs that will identify and develop high
potential staff. In addition, some quick wins have been
implemented e.g. Employee of the Month initiative to
keep every staff member motivated and outstanding.

the economic outlook of the
Nigerian economy. This is because it
boosts gross domestic product (GDP),
provides key inputs for most industries
and supplies the basic needs for the
residential sector. The power sector
in which Egbin Power PLC operates
must be financially sustainable, as
its long term financial sustainability
relies on the assessment of factors
that directly impact on the overall
cost of production of electricity, which
will invariably determine the ability
for power companies like Egbin to
make investments in response to the
geometric increase in the demand

In 2007, The Sahara Group, through

a special purpose vehicle KEPCO
Energy Resource Limited (KERL)
acquired an initial 51% of Egbin

completion of the privatization process
of the power sector, following agreed
