The Clarke Energy (Nigeria) Limited, a multinational specialist in the distribution of power generation solutions and the authorised distributor and service provider for GEâ€™s reciprocating gas engines in Nigeria, has opened an ultra-modern workshop in Lagos.
At the official opening of the facility yesterday, the General Manager of Clarke Energy (Nigeria) Limited, Patrick Nzekwe stated the organisation’s commitment to developing power generation solutions by utilising gas as energy resource for power for the benefit of the Nigerian economy.
He highlighted the successes recorded by the company in its over two decades of operations in Nigeria, including Clarke Energyâ€™s delivery of close to 400 MW for a wide range of applications and customers; providing support and after sales service to 190+ Jenbacher engines in sub-Saharan Africa as well as the supply of its first hybrid solution using gas and storage at OK Plast in Lagos.
Continuing, he reiterated that the opening of the workshop was a testament of the firmâ€™s commitment to the development of the Nigerian economy, saying its team had delivered about 400MW of electrical generation capacity to many large industrial facilities across Nigeria seeking economical, reliable captive power plants.
Clarke Energy was also able to deliver multi-engine power plants for independent power producers and supplied one of Nigeriaâ€™s first gas-fueled IPP facilities at Akute.
â€œClarke Energy has equally installed cogeneration and trigenerational power installations for various manufacturing companies, who have been able to maximize their efficiencies by being able to generate power, heat and or cooling from a single fuel sourceâ€, he said.
The Commercial Director of GE for Africa, Mrs.Toyin Abegunde, in her speech spoke about Clarke Energyâ€™s partnership with GE, adding that the partnership between GE and Clarke Energy had produced over 700 MW of power in Africa with 400MW of it in Nigeria.
