Bauch state government has signed a N39’9 billion Memorandum of Understanding with a UK-based company, Power Dot UK to generate 10 megawatts of electricity per annum.
Anthony Esere, the General Manager of the UK-based company and Malam Ibrahim Kabir, the General Manager of the Bauchi State Environmental Protection Agency (BASEPA) signed on behalf of both parties in a brief ceremony in Bauchi on Friday.
Mr. Esere said electricity would be generated from deposited waste materials under the arrangement, adding that a 10 megawatts energy incineration plant would process no fewer than 64,700 metric tonnes of wastes annually to generate power.
He also said that the effort would provide employment to about 2000 youths from the state.
He said works on the project would commence in March and expected to be completed and commissioned within 12 months.
