Nigerdock has completed the first phase of its shift to renewable energy sources through the installation of solar solutions at Snake Island Integrated Free Zone. The company has engaged Daystar Power, a leading solar power company in West Africa, for the development of its energy plan.
Speaking on the initiative, Nigerdock CEO, Maher Jarmakani said: “As a self-sustaining economic hub, improving our energy consumption and reducing our carbon footprint is pivotal to our long-term operations and success. Our renewable energy solution will provide us and our growing clientele with consistent power and greater ease to conduct business.”
Current solar operations enable Nigerdock to displace 40% of its daytime energy consumption, reduce CO2 output by about 2,000 metric tons, and achieve significant emission reduction targets. The project is part of a wider push by Nigerdock to develop 20MW in the midterm.
Commenting on the project, Christian Wessels, President of Daystar Power, said: “This is a great achievement for the region’s maritime industry, and we are proud to support Nigerdock’s growth and adoption of clean, reliable, sustainable, and cost-effective solar solutions to power the free zone.”
The solar power expansion is the next step in Nigerdock’s journey towards green port status, highlighting the company’s vision and commitment to Nigeria’s Climate Change Act, the Blue Economy, and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Nigerdock is a leading Nigerian maritime and logistics company operating an integrated free zone and port terminals in Lagos. The company provides clients with terminal operations, logistics, marine services, and free zone solutions.
