'Poor Projects' Handling Stalled 8,000MW Power Target'

The Chairman, Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) Dr Sam Amadi has pointed out that part of the challenge besetting the power sector is really to do with project performance management.

Dr Amadi said this at the Commission in Abuja during a two day workshop with Industry Performance Management officers of Generation and Transmission Companies.

He said, "If we have delivered all the NIPP projects, the capacity of existing generation companies, we would have been doing over 8,000mw today. We need to develop the skills to project and deliver."

He said that the need to take the sector to an amiable height that could stand international reckoning makes it imperative to build a team of performance management officers, who would both monitor and report to NERC.

"Because we have had ineffective project management in the past we couldn't achieve it. If the privatized plants were running close to 80percent of their installed capacity we would have been a different country today," Amadi said.

The workshop provided a template for effective performance management for the industry.

On improving the distribution networks capacity, Amadi said, "Our strategy is to keep increasing the network and providing commercial incentive for Discos to take all the power they can take. With the removal of imbalance penalty Discos have no commercial reason not to take more power."
