Chinese company building transformer plant in Nigeria


 Nigeria, Abuja: Nigeria’s National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) in partnership with the China Great Wall plans to build a transformer manufacturing plant in Nigeria.

Under the Memorandum of Understanding signed by the two firms, the transformer manufacturing project covers electric power and distribution, power transformer as well as high voltage testing laboratory.

Chinese Great Wall Corporation officials visited Nigeria yesterday and its spokesperson, Mr. Ao Pei Yong, said the Nigeria project, when completed, will be the second largest transformer producing plant in Africa, reports The Sun.

“Once this project is completed, Nigeria will have the capacity to achieve a Nigeria brand of transformer, not only for self-sufficiency, but the country can export it to other parts of Africa,” said Mr. Yong, noting that the project should be completed in no later than three years.

The plant should be set up in Okene, Kogi State, at the permanent site of the Power Equipment and Electrical Machinery Development Institute (PEEMADI), one of NASENI development institutes.
