2013, Siemens in Nigeria scored major successes in the following Sectors:
A success story for the Energy Sector was the commissioning of the Geregu II power plant for Niger Delta Power Holding Company Limited (NDPHC) in May of 2013, adding 434 MW to the Nigerian grid. The project was completed on budget, on time, and in compliance with the highest ethical, environmental, health, and safety standards. This is a testimonial to the fact that Siemens fully understands the Nigerian terrain and is deeply committed to the country’s development.
Siemens signed a contract with the BUA Group to supply three SGT 500 gas turbines for its cement factory in Edo State. This is the first order for this type of turbine in Nigeria.
A five-year long-term service program (LTP) contract was signed with Dangote Group, one of the most diversified business conglomerates in Africa, for the Ibese cement factory power plant, which was built and commissioned by Siemens in 2012.
In fiscal 2013, Siemens partnered with various prominent companies such as Shell Petroleum Development Company, Dangote Industries Limited, and CMI FPE Limited for the servicing and supply of low-voltage products, motor control centers, automation panels, and testing and commissioning services.
The Infrastructure & Cities Sector’s focus in fiscal 2013 in Nigeria was mainly in the area of low- and medium-voltage power distribution, energy automation, network services, and training. A number of customers in Nigeria benefited from Siemens’ advanced, modular, and innovative low- and medium-voltage power distribution systems and solutions.
