HydroPower 2020 – IEA

According to IEA, hydropower is expected to remain the world’s largest source of renewable electricity generation. Efficiency is a key element in a world of limited resources.

Hence our affiliation with Global Hydro Energy GmbH whose power plant management system optimizes the operation of each power plant.


Geogrid Lightec Limited, MPDC Partnership

Following the earlier partnership with the Manufacturers’ Association of Nigeria (MAN), Geogrid Lightec Limited (GLT) and the MAN Power Development Company (MPDC) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the supply of uninterrupted power to the members of the association within the Agidingbi – Acme Axis of the Ogba industrial cluster on the 14th of November. This was done with the press and members of the public in attendance as well as executives of both companies.

With the generating license to generate 30 MW of power in place, this landmark achievement represents a significant step towards the take-off of the Co-generation plant. The talks have been ongoing between the two parties for the past six months, ironing out intricacies to the project and have culminated in the signing of the MoU. This agreement could not have come at a better time  going by the recently released  Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) regulations pertaining to the Eligible Customer Status .

Geogrid Energy and Global Hydro Energy; The accent of a unique partnership

As September heralded to a close, Global Hydro Energy Gmbh stated her intent in bringing small hydropower to Nigeria. The Austrian company, one of Europe’s top hydropower solutions developer, was in Lagos at the Advantage Austria event held on the 25th of September to present their line of solutions as well as their latest innovation, the Smart T. One of the founding founders of the company, Mr Marius Haeger, described the technology as a plug and play system which can be designed to the customer’s specification and can generate up to 1 megawatts (MW). In addition, these small hydropower solutions can be implemented in hybrid systems to incorporate solar systems in mini-grid infrastructure thereby offering greater efficiency. They have extensive experience implementing their solutions across the world and are seeking to penetrate the sub-Saharan African market.

As one of Nigeria’s premier power solutions provider, we at Geogrid Energy Company (GEC) have entered a partnership with Global Hydro to bring this technology to the Nigerian market. This comes as a good time especially with the recent reforms in the power sector and mini-grid regulation. Hydropower is still a widely untapped frontier when it comes to power in Nigeria and small hydropower offers a route to exploiting it. Our managing director, Mr Dayo Sobitan, stated at the event GEC’s commitment to implementing small hydropower across the nation via the mini grid infrastructure thereby bringing sustainable and clean power to offtakers especially those underserved and/or unserved by the grid.

Our sights are firmly set on making sure small hydropower gains a foothold in the Nigerian energy space as well as in Africa. This, we intend to achieve with our partners at Global Hydro Energy Gmbh.
