Following Nigeria’s push for consistent Energy supply and the passing of the Power Reform Act in 2005, GEOMETRIC POWER has been increasing its portfolio of renewable energy technologies and services to match the growing need for alternative energy sources. As a technology provider partnering with World Class Performers from American, Belgian, French, Nigerian and South African companies, and in line with its goal of promoting industrialization and driving positive economic growth, GEOMETRIC POWER identified an opportunity to provide electric power to customers in Aba, Abia State of Nigeria. Aba is a major commercial centre in South Eastern Nigeria, and the supply of electric power to the town is grossly inadequate to serve the needs of consumers. GP has found a solution to this imbalance with a combination of power generation and distribution projects, collectively referred to as the Aba Integrated Power Project (Aba IPP). The EPC for the power plant is General Electric of USA, with Group Five of South Africa as the contractor for the power station. The substations contractor is Pauwels Contracting of Belgium, and the over-head power lines contractor is ABB Powerlines Nig. Limited.
GEOMETRIC POWER is determined to play a leading role in the emerging private sector, post- privatisation energy market in Nigeria and to expand beyond the Nigerian market to other sub-Saharan African countries.
Specifically, GEOMETRIC POWER is poised to play a pivotal role in the Nigerian coal-to-power sector.
