The Azura-Edo IPP is the first project to be initiated by Azura Power. The project consists of a 450MW Open Cycle Gas Turbine (OCGT) power station, which forms part of a 1,500MW Independent Power Plant facility being developed near Benin City in Edo State, Nigeria.

A 100-hectare site has been acquired for the IPP, large enough to accommodate future expansion of the power plant. The facility will be executed in two to three phases with a tendered capacity, in open cycle and at site conditions, of 450MW in Phase 1. On completion of construction, the project will supply power to Nigeria under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
