The Hydrocarbon Pollution Remediation Project (HYPREP) was set up to implement the Environmental Assessment of Ogoniland by the United Nations Environment Programme(UNEP) – 2011. However, HYPREP through the HYPREP Governing Council has thought it essential to provide Electric Power in Ogoniland from the national grid. This Power Project will help to support projects that require urgent sustainability as recommended in the environmental assessment of Ogoniland Report 2011, such as the Centre of Excellence for Environmental Restoration (CEER), Health infrastructure, Potable Water Schemes across Ogoniland, and various livelihoods programmes. Overall, the value chain is innumerable.

Ogoniland Power Transmission Line Project, Phase 1

The Ogoniland Power Project activity is carried out in the Technical Support Unit of the Hydrocarbon Pollution Remediation Project. The Power project was contracted in December 2022 with a reviewed timeline of 24months from date of commencement. It consists of the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) of Two 60MVA 132/33kV Transmission Substations at Wiiyaakara and Bodo respectively, as well as a 132kV DC 62 km Transmission Line (spanning Ebubu, Wiiyaakara and Bodo Substations).
