Nigerdock plans shift to renewable energy
Maher Jarmakani, Chief Executive Officer of Nigerdock, says the company has concluded plans to focus more on renewable energy.
Jarmakani said in a statement on Friday that it had completed the first phase of its transition to renewable energy sources by installing solar solutions at Snake Island Integrated Free Zone.
He also stated that with the installation, Nigerdock would reduce CO2 output by approximately 2,000 metric tons and meet significant emission reduction targets.
"Current solar operations enable Nigerdock to displace 40% of its daytime energy consumption, reduce CO2 output by approximately 2,000 metric tons, and meet significant emission reduction targets," he said.
"As a self-sustaining economic hub, improving our energy consumption and reducing our carbon footprint is pivotal to our long-term operations and success. "Our renewable energy solution will provide us and our growing clientele with more consistent power and ease of doing business," he said.
According to Jarmakani, the project is part of Nigerdock's larger push to develop 20 megawatts of sustainable, cost-effective, and reliable power within the free zone.
He stated that the solar power expansion is the next step in Nigerdock's journey to becoming a green port.
The CEO emphasized the company's vision and commitment to Nigeria's climate change act, the blue economy, and the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.
