Symbion was part of the Transcorp Ughelli Power Limited (TUPL) consortium that won the right to acquire the 972MW gas-fired Ughelli power plant in Warri, November 2013. The Transcorp Ughelli Power Limited consortium is revitalizing the Ughelli power plant, which is currently producing 300MW on Open Cycle Gas Turbines. The consortium plans to increase output to 700MW within five years.
As the lead technical partner to the Transcorp Ughelli Power Limited consortium, Symbion provides all technical expertise of the Ughelli plant. Symbion's staff undertook the initial technical evaluation of the asset to determine the value, acquisition cost, refurbishment and operation costs of the Ughelli power plant. The ability for Symbion, as part of the Transcorp Ughelli Power Limited consortium to improve the energy output of the Ughelli power plant will continue to stabilize the energy needs in Nigeria.
