3 Genesis of Aba IPPDecember 2000 – Geometric Power Limited (GPL) (sponsor and developer of Aba IPP Project) launches the Abuja 22MW Emergency Power PlantMarch 2004 – President Obasanjo approves GPL’s Aba IPP as first privately financed projectMay 2004 – Minister of Power and Steel, MD/CEO of NEPA and GPL sign an MOU to build the Aba IPP according to the President’s directiveApril 2005 – Minister of Power and Steel, MD/CEO of NEPA and APL sign an agreement for the lease of NEPA assets in Aba by APL for 15 yearsAugust 2005 – President allocates supply of gas for the Aba IPP in the National Gas Master Plan
4 Project BackgroundCurrent situation – Industries and other consumers presently depend on expensive diesel generation for a substantial part of their production because of inadequacy of the power supply from the national gridAba IPP Project – Will supply reliable power to industries, commercial businesses and residential homes in Aba through construction and operation of 140 MW gas fired power plantDownstream – Construction of own industry-centred distribution lines: several industries poised to expand production capacity if reliable low-cost power supply is assuredOther Customers – Commercial and residential consumers to receive power through distribution lines in “ring-fenced” network leased from PHCN
5 Project Description Structure Island model disconnected from the national grid and serving industrial and residential customersPower StationInstalled capacity of approximately 140 MW comprising 3 gas fired open cycle turbines with opportunity for expansionEPC Contractor to construct, install and commission power plant on turnkey basisSubsequent procurement of O&M ContractDistribution Lines33 KV distribution lines to be constructed from power station to supply reliable power to GPAL Customers through seven distribution substations
6 Project Description (Cont.) Substations33 KV Power Station substation with eight outgoing 33 KV Feeders to be constructed for evacuation of power generated at the Power StationNew Distribution SubstationsFour distribution substations to be constructed within the city of Aba and equipped each with 2x15 MVA 33/11 KV transformers to supply power to GPAL customersOsisiomaOgbor HillFactory RoadPort Harcourt Road

8 The Clean Energy Project Nigeria's first Clean Energy Carbon Project to benefit from the Clean Development Mechanism ("CDM") established under the Kyoto Protocol.Project has qualified for $9 million carbon grant from the Community Development Carbon Fund (CDCF) (set up by the World Bank).
9 Carbon FinanceGeneral term applied to financing under which a Fund/entity seeks to purchase greenhouse gas emission reductions ("carbon" for short) to offset emissions in the OECD.Under Carbon Finance arrangements (or ERPA) a clean development project in a developing country can "sell" carbon credits, obtained by replacing more polluting projects, to buyers in industrialised countries seeking to meet their Kyoto obligations to reduce emissions in those countries.
10 Community Development Carbon Fund A public-private partnership of governments and 16 companies and organisations managed by the World Bank.Designed to provide communities in developing countries, and in particular least developed countries, with an opportunity to benefit from new investments in renewable energy and clean technologies that aim to reduce greenhouse emissions and mitigate effects of climate change, while improving the welfare of the communities involved.Community development benefits of ABA Project include access to electricity, construction of a school, health centre and a road for the surrounding communities of Aba Plant.
