FMO signed agreements to provide $40 million of senior debt financing to Azura Power West Africa Limited, a 450 MW gas-fired independent power project in Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria (the Azura-Edo IPP). The project will strengthen the gas-to-power value chain in Nigeria and deliver much-needed electricity to almost 14 million residential consumers in the country. The Azura-Edo IPP consists of the construction, operation and maintenance of a 450 MW gas-fired open-cycle power plant located in Edo State, Nigeria. It also includes the construction of a short 330kV transmission line and an underground gas pipeline spur connecting the power plant to the country’s main gas trunk line. The project has been developed by a consortium of investors led by Amaya Capital Ltd, a principal investment firm focused on energy projects in West Africa. IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, is providing loans of $80 million ($50 million of senior debt and $30 million of subordinated debt) and mobilizing $212.5 million (of which $177.5 million has been jointly raised with FMO) in additional long-term financing from a pool of eight development finance institutions (DFIs). FMO acted as co-Lead Arranger with IFC for the senior DFI tranche of the financing. The balance of debt financing is being provided by international commercial lenders, co-arranged by Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) and Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) and guaranteed by the World Bank and the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA).
