Power Nigeria off to good start

03 October 2013, 16:09

Lagos - More than 100 exhibitors from 16 countries are showcasing their products at Power Nigeria.

The region’s prime power exhibition started in Lagos on Thursday and is scheduled to end on Friday.

Informa Energy Group is organizing the event with a view to lure international companies to invest in the country’s power sector.

Director of Informa Energy Group, Anita Matthews said the request by its international exhibitors to widen their product distribution to the burgeoning Nigeria power market necessitated the expo.

In an interview, she said Nigeria's recent effort at improving the power sector through privatization also made the exhibition necessary.

On Monday, the Nigerian government concluded the power sector privatization with the handing over of the former energy generation and distribution companies to successful bidders.

Matthews said part of the exhibition plan was aimed at reaching out to the new power company owners and introducing to them new energy products.

Some of the  power product exhibitors at the event include companies from Russia, United Arab Emirates, Greece, Germany, South Korea, Switzerland, Bangladesh, France, China, Bulgaria, India, United Kingdom, Turkey and Oman.

Part of the products on display at the exhibition include, power cables and conductors, transformers, inverters, solar energy panels and devices, high voltage components, industrial batteries, insulation equipments, electric meters, control equipments, data communications equipments and compressors. Other products include circuit breakers, capacitor and capacitor banks, cable laying equipments, bolts, nuts, chains and fittings.

Matthews said the exhibitors were not only showcasing their products but were also sharing the technology behind the products.

She said all the companies exhibiting products at the event had world class certification and as such, the Nigerian investment community should be assured of the quality of products they got from manufacturers at the event.
