Commissioning of Kashimbila Hydropower Station (40 MW) in Nigeria

The project will cover the electricity needs of about 80% of the southern Taraba State.

Gamesa Electric has commissioned the new Kashimbila Hydropower Station in Nigeria, where we have installed four 12.1 MVA Gamesa Electric vertical hydro generators. The plant will provide 40 MW to the national grid and will cover the electricity needs of about 80% of the southern Taraba State. The plant is located in the Kashimbila dam, that will also be used to provide drinking water and will also feed irrigation systems in the region.

Nigeria is rich in water resources and has and ambitious growth target for hydropower development, along with other renewable sources, to contribute to reducing the carbon footprint and meet the growing energy demand in the urban areas of the region.
