Gas Fired Power Plant

Cummins Power Generation Nigeria owns and operates 14 captive and independent gas-fired power plants across Nigeria today, supplying electricity to various industries and distribution companies. An additional 6 power plants are under construction.

Cummins lean burn high efficiency gas generators are the primary generating equipment and the additional balance of plantand switchgear are sourced from leading global suppliers such as Schneider Electric and Stamford.

Based on the customer requirements, space availability and expected power, our engineers suggest either a fully installed containerized solution or an open set generator room.

For open air location, we offer fully containerised generators called Power boxes. A weather and sound proof 40 ft container houses generators as big as 2.00 MW.


Cummins Power Generation Nigeria also develops high voltage systems for grid connected IPP stations. The cabling and electrical switchgear is highly specialized, consisting of all necessary protective switchgear, a complex substation to divert power and transform voltage as required by the distribution network and station auxiliary supply requirements, and full metering and analysis provisions.

All power stations are developed with a complete fire and gas detection and safety system, including redundancy features to ensure effective safety and prevention measures. The system is fully automated for emergency actionand designed to offer the flexibility of either a complete gas supply shutdown or a cell-by-cell shutdown of each individual genset.
