… As expense of power alone takes in over 40 % of making expense.
By Elizabeth Uwandu.
Concerned over the substantial expense of power generation sustained by the production market, the Nigerian Society of Engineers, Apapa branch hosted a public lecture tagged,” High expense of energy in commercial sector- checking out the gas service,” to look for methods to diversify the energy sector.
Speaking at the occasion that saw brand-new members inducted into the society, the chairman of NSE, Apapa branch, Engr. Warm Ejeje stated it was about time Nigerian federal government looked inwards in making gas a significant source of power generation considering its capacities.
According to Engr. Ejeje; “There are substantial advantages Nigeria and certainly the production market will obtain from diversity of the energy sector instead of straight-out reliance on just a source.
” Not just will diversity crash power tariff, epileptic power supply, to name a few, checking out the gas service will go a long method in enhancing organisation for the production market and develop a making it possible for environment for financiers.” NSE chairman kept in mind.
Regreting the perchance of federal government dependence on migrants to do significant tasks, Engr. Ejeje described that:” The significant difficulty for engineering occupation in Nigeria is the failure to trust our own. We do much better abroad, and why can’t chance be provided to our own to carry out? He asked.
On his part, the visitor speaker at the lecture, and Head of Technical. Flour Mill of Engr. Festus Omotoyinbo described that it was an embarassment that Nigeria was yet to check out the chance in gas to fulfill the power need of the nation in spite of having accessibility of 190 trillion foot cubit of gas deposit.
His words: “In Nigeria today, we are suffering due to the fact that of the fuel supply from the grid. As federal government generally concentrate on Terma in spite of the accessibility of gas that is over 190 trillion cubic foot of gas deposit. We are not able to explore this chance to fulfill the power need of the nation.
” For me it is a huge embarassment to us in Nigeria as it impacts us the production sector. So as engineers, we are taking a look at what alternatives proactively readily available to offer service for the production sectors to be able to run efficiently and make revenue in every locations of their operation.
” Considering that power expense makes up more than 40 percent of the overall expense of an item, one needs to look for option to fixing the difficulty. We are having a difficulty with the truth that the gas exists, not totally checked out to be able to meet the need of the producer.
” So for any organisation to grow in Nigeria, there is a prospective requirement for the federal government to look inward and see what they can do with the tapping deep dive into the concern of gas and guarantee it is checked out to benefit the production sector.”.
