Nigeria - Power Sector Guarantees Project : environmental assessment : Azura-Edo independent power project : environmental impact assessment (English)

The development objective of the Power Sector Guarantees Project for Nigeria is to contribute to alleviating the power supply deficit by creating a conducive environment for private sector to invest in and operate power generation companies and sell power to the state-owned bulk trader. Negative impacts include: air quality, noise pollution, soil erosion, water pollution, waste, and safety. Mitigation measures include: 1) spray surfaces prior to excavation and clearing, apply liquid asphalt and use binder materials for exposed surfaces and fit dust suppression/extraction to equipment; 2) cover trucks transporting spoil and waste; 3) all vehicles to be regularly maintained; 4) develop detailed noise control plan, use temporary noise barriers and use 'low noise' equipment; 5) train construction staff on noise control plan during health and safety briefings; 6) develop and implement of a waste management plan; 7) use oil/water separators and silt traps; 8) adequate sewage collection and treatment; and 9) adequate sewage collection and treatment.
