Background

On May 12, 2015, Milhouse Engineering & Construction, Inc. signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Federal Republic of Nigeria and its Ministry of Power for coal mining on 20,000 acres in the Enugu region, including plans for up to 500 mw of coal-fired capacity by end-2018.[2]

In April 2017, it was reported Milhouse was recently granted a 30 MW license from the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) to produce power in Enugu.[3] On its website, Milhouse International says the plan is ultimately for a 300 MW coal plant.[1]

As of June 2019, with no further developments in over two years, it appears that the project is shelved.
