Azura Power is a developer, financier, acquirer and operator of Independent Power Plants (IPPs) across Africa. Our ambition is to build the continent's leading power generation platform.
We have a strong presence in West Africa where we are the founder and majority owner of Nigeria's first privately project financed IPP, a 450MW IPP now under construction near Benin City in Edo State. We also own one of the country's largest solar projects, a 100MW IPP in Katsina state that is expected to reach financial close before the end of 2017. To expand and diversify our portfolio, we are building a pipeline of development and acquisition opportunities in other African countries.
Azura Power is owned by Amaya Capital and Actis, and benefits from its investors' strong relationships, local knowledge, in-depth sector expertise, a long term financial commitment to the business, and the insight and know-how on what it takes to build a successful and sustainable business in Africa.
