Caterpillar promises gas technology support for Nigeria

Equipment manufacturing giant, Caterpillar, has pledged to assist the country overcome its power challenges with what it called “Smarter Energy Solutions” driven by gas.

This declaration was made recently at a seminar, “Smarter Energy Solutions” hosted by Mantrac Nigeria Limited (formerly Tractor & Equipment), sole distributor of Caterpillar products in Nigeria, at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Caterpillar and Mantrac representatives took turns to explain to the business community how they could benefit from various gas-powered, environmentally friendly energy solutions, which would help to drive down cost of production and also improve power supply in the country.

The Managing Director of Mantrac Nig. Ltd, Mr. Edmund Martin-Lawson, noted that, “this is a smarter energy solution because we have a power solution through gas engines. We are focusing on gas and that is where the government is going”.

“So the equipment we are introducing to the country are gas engines that can be used to tap the abundant gas resources available and convert it to power so that soon, Nigeria will stop having power blackouts. The engines will take power closer to the communities because as at today, we still have problems with transmission.

So the best solution is to bring the engines closer to communities and produce power.”
