Nigeria Generators - This Pramac 20 kVA silent diesel generator is on its way to Nigeria where it will be used as prime power for a house.
Nigeria is one of the most unique and beautiful countries on the planet. Tourists flood to the country from all over the planet to see the stunning waterfalls and savannahs or to visit the diverse and beautiful wildlife that dwell in its rainforests. However, Nigeria is also a thriving hub of industry and commerce, and an attractive location for overseas businesses looking for a gateway into Africa. With generous incentives like tax credits, tax holidays, 0% investment allowances, rural location incentives, interest incentives and export incentives to name but a few, it represents fertile ground for entrepreneurial types with global expansion in mind.
However, in an era where every business has become a tech business, Nigeria also represents unique challenges. An increased reliance on technology inevitably means an increased reliance on power, and there are some unique caveats that apply to businesses looking to expand to Nigeria. Here we’ll look at some of the reasons why a diesel or petrol powered backup generator could be your most important investment when it comes to doing business in Nigeria.
Nigeria currently loses a staggering $29.3 BN a year to power outages and poor energy distribution. Despite the government’s efforts to rectify the crisis, only 40% of Nigeria's population is currently connected to the energy grid. Even those homes and businesses that are connected face power supply difficulties around 60% of the time. At best, average daily power supply is estimated at four hours and in some areas several days can go by without any power at all.
Nigeria Power Generators
There are a number of factors at play here. Political instability is one. The Niger Delta is the site of most of the country’s power plants, due to its access to the resources necessary for energy production. However with armed militias operating in the area, Nigeria has become an unattractive area for overseas investment in power. The most pressing, however, is the deteriorating transmission network. Transmission lines are old and the network suffers from a chronic lack of under-investment.
While diesel powered engines were once thought of as unsanitary, modern generators emit fewer greenhouse gases. Due to modern improvements that allow diesel engines to burn in a more efficient manner, it means that there is a much better impact on the environment overall. From the perspective of any modern farmer, that is looking to keep their livestock and landscape environmentally-friendly, there is no need to worry about this.
The country’s oil dependant economy has also stymied investment in alternative and renewable forms of energy production. Thus, businesses must be prepared to be self-sustaining in their energy production for operations in Nigeria to be sustainable.
As we can see, in order to maintain their operations for more than half of the average working day, all businesses should invest in having their very own generator on-site in Nigeria. That said, a generator is absolutely essential for the following industries;
- Industrial businesses, which need to be constantly operational.
- Shops and restaurants where a loss of power will lead you to have to close your doors to consumers.
- Manufacturing operations. Stalled production could result in missed quotas and major losses.
- Agricultural operations based in rural locations with little or no access to mains power.
Mining companies for which an underground power loss could have colossal safety implications.
- Data Centres, tech companies and offices with on-site servers, where a consistent power supply is essential to prevent data loss.
