The Transmission Company of Nigeria Recruitment (TNC) is seeking qualified applicants to apply for the vacant positions at the West African Power Pool (WAPP).
The West African Power Pool (WAPP) is a specialized institution of the Economic Community of
West African States (ECOWAS). It brings together 14 countries of the regional economic community. WAPP is made up of public and private companies involved in the production, transmission, and distribution of electrical energy in West Africa.
The 330 kV North Core project consists of the construction of a 330 kV transmission line over a length of approximately 875 km between Birnin-Kebbi in Nigeria and Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso, passing through the Niamey region in Niger.
The project also links Benin, in the Malanville region, through Niger. The project is co-financed by the World Bank, the African Development Bank, the Agence Française de Développement, the European Union and the Government of Nigeria. Given the regional dimension of the project, and to improve its coordination, the Energy Ministers of the North Core countries have agreed to set up an institutional framework that provides for the creation of a Project Management Unit (PMU) to assist, among other things, in the development and physical implementation of the project.
The PMU consists of a central unit based in Abuja, Nigeria and will also have local offices in each of the countries involved in the Project. The Project PMU (Central Unit and Country Offices) is supported by a Consultant Engineer recruited mainly to ensure the supervision of construction works undertaken by the Contractors.
Blueprint Consult Company Limited, on behalf of the North Core Project, is recruiting to fill the
following vacancies in the country offices of the Project Management Unit. Blueprint Consult
invites qualified candidates to submit their applications for consideration.
