Nigerian maritime company, Nigerdock, has completed the first phase of its shift towards renewable energy. The company is developing a 20 MW solar power project at its Snake Island Integrated Free Zone in the Lagos Port Complex, as a part of its wider effort to enable the free zone to achieve green port status.
The development of solar power solutions and infrastructure at the Lagos Port serves as a wider effort by Nigerdock to generate clean, reliable, and sustainable energy in the free zone. The company has engaged the West African solar power provider Daystar Power, a subsidiary of Shell Global, for the development of its energy plan.
Maher Jarmakani, CEO of Nigerdock, said that improving energy consumption and reducing environmental footprints is vital to their long-term operations and success, making the Lagos Port a self-sustaining economic hub. The renewable energy solution will provide Nigerdock and its growing clientele with consistent and sustainable power and greater ease in conducting its businesses.
