Lafarge Set to Add 30MW to Nigeria’s Grid in 2018


Lafarge Africa Plc says it has concluded plans to inject about 30 mega watts (MW) of electricity into the national grid by 2018, The Punch reports.

According to the Manager of Ewekoro plant, the firm’s flagship manufacturing base, Mr. Segun Soyoye, Lafarge currently produces 90MW of electricity to power its operations with a target to increase the capacity to 220MW. He said on Friday that the process of injecting power into the national grid was at the concluding stage. He added that the company had also started investing in alternative energy sources to power its kilns.

The Country Chief Executive Officer, Lafarge, Mr. Michel Puchercos, had recently said that the company was ready to support the country in solving her energy problem. He said the effects of the slowdown in the economy prompted the company to seek alternative means of generating energy for its Ewekoro and other plants using biomass.
