Foreign firms confirmed for Power Nigeria

30 September 2013, 13:37

Lagos - Power Nigeria, the showcase event for the African power industry, has attracted the interest of overseas firm.

The three-day event will be held in Lagos from Wednesday.

Taking place at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Power Nigeria will serve as a comprehensive platform for exhibitors to showcase their wares in the power generation, transmission and distribution, lighting and renewable energy, nuclear energy and water sectors.

During the event, the Bulgarian company International Power Supply will launch their new modular hybrid power system, Exeron, designed to combine power effectively from different sources of energy including sun, wind, diesel generator and grid.

Oman-based manufacturer of power and distribution transformers, Voltamp Energy, will present their latest range of power transformers extending up to 315 megawatts.

Meanwhile the UK-based training specialists The Faraday Centre will promote their newly built training facility in Lagos, providing training in high and low voltage for the land, marine and offshore industries.

Radwan Halabi of the United Arab Emirates-based National Fire Fighting Manufacturing Co (NAFFCO) will conduct the first session in the morning of the three-day seminar about certified firefighting systems and equipment.

Anita Mathews, Director of Informa Energy Group, organisers of Power Nigeria, was upbeat ahead of the event.

“The free-to-attend technical seminars will give visitors an opportunity to hear expert presentations about the energy sector, while the Power Nigeria exhibition is the best place to see the latest technology and intelligent energy solutions the industry has to offer,” she said.

Commenting on the Nigerian power sector, Mathews said: “The Nigerian power sector has been struggling to meet demand with a number of generation units in the power plants across the country operating much lower than their installed capacity. Investments have to be made in funding of all the regional power systems to develop the available resource potential for power generation to eventually cater to the country’s growing electricity demand. Power Nigeria provides the platform for stakeholders to take this forward.”

The Federal Ministry of Power, The Nigerian Association for Energy Economics, Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission and The Foundation for the Development of Africa support Power Nigeria.
