ABB to Collaborate with Core Investors on Power Distribution

As the federal government finalises the sale of the assets of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) and the 10 power stations built by the Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC), under the National Integrated Power Project (NIPP), ABB, said it would collaborate with the new owners of these assets to fix the entire distribution network nationwide.

The multinational electrical power solution company plans to kick start this programme before the end of this year with one of its newly developed power solution equipment called Safelink Ring Main Unit (RMU), which was launched into the Nigerian market recently.

According to the Sales Director of ABB Nigeria, Mr. Bryan Mckenna, who revealed that the entire power distribution network in Nigeria needed total repair and rehabilitation, this development will inform the company’s decision to come out with this power solution equipment that would not only help to protect every installed transformer nationwide but would also bring in the flexibility for power supply in the distribution network.
