MAN Diesel & Turbo Delves into Power Generation In Nigeria

MAN Diesel and Turbo, in a bid to expand its frontiers in power generation, as well as, create employment, has opened its first office in Nigeria.

According to the Chief Executive Officer of the company, Dr. Uwe Lauber, having done business in Nigeria for a long time, there is hope to further grow business affiliations and strengthen partnership with Nigeria.

The Managing Director MAN Diesel & Turbo Nigeria, Mr. Adedayo Olowoniyi, noted that the privatisation of the local power market is driving investment, “with only about 5.5 megawatts installed today, there is a substantial need for additional decentralised generation capacity. The country’s overall economy is growing substantially and our products can help companies secure their energy supply without having to depend on the public grid.”

The German Consul General, Mr. Ingo Herbert, in his remarks said that out of the approximately 50,000 active German companies globally, only about 1,000 have registered their presence in Africa. While MAN’s world famous trucks have been a familiar sight for many years, I am very pleased that people and companies in Nigeria now also have direct nationwide access to this company’s great high technology solutions in the field of energy generation”.

Senior Vice President at MAN Diesel & Turbo and Head of the company’s African power plants business, Mr. Martin Kalter said, “There are strong dynamics in many African markets. We are currently building plants in Senegal, Niger and Burkina-Faso. In late 2013, we handed over the first gas-fired power plant that we ever built on the continent, in Gabon, to the client. 2014 saw another African premiere, when we commissioned an engine-combined cycle plant in Kenya.”
