Nigeria’s leading power exhibition dedicated to the burgeoning African power industry will open in Lagos next Tuesday. The exhibition is coming on the heels of the Federal Government’s announcement that the country requires consistent investment in the power sector to ensure her 135,000 megawatts generation capacity is met by 2030.
An increase in power generation would bolster Nigeria’s vast economic potential and move it further in line with its Vision 2020, as well as attain the level of economic height and prosperity of countries like Brazil and India.
Holding at the Eko Hotel on Victoria Island, Power Nigeria will serve as a comprehensive platform for international exhibitors to showcase their latest technological developments in the power generation, transmission and distribution, lighting, renewable energy, nuclear and water sectors.
Skipper, a leading name in the field of power generation, transmission and distribution will be showcasing its capabilities at Power Nigeria, and will display some of its smart products such as energy management solutions, package substation and energy efficient transformers.
Mr. Pankaj Sachdeva, Joint Group President and Group Director, Skipper Transmission and Distribution, said, “Power Nigeria is sure to provide a healthy and professional platform for us to interact with our end users and decision makers and to offer them differentiated solutions to improve their operational efficiencies.
“The products we are planning to display at the show are state-of-the-art, and are upgraded through our continuous research and development exercises, with the objective of making them more dependable, energy-efficient and environment-friendly,” added Sachdeva.
Following the success of previous energy conferences at other events held by the organisers, this year will see the addition of a new, two-day conference, free of charge for all visitors. The conference will feature renowned experts from the West African power industry discussing the latest developments in the energy sector.
The keynote address will be delivered by Dr. Sam Amadi, Chairman/CEO, Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
