“This investment demonstrates our commitment to look beyond the conventional generation methods and provide cleaner, more reliable electricity solutions directly to industries in the country. This all helps to produce a flow of capital that supports jobs, improves lives and aids the transformation of the economy.”

Globeleq’s CEO, Mike Scholey added:

“Commercial and industrial manufacturers will have more sustainable options to connect their businesses. Our investment will drive growth and support the Government’s industrialization agenda. We look forward to welcoming the new team into the company and bringing together the best of our organizations.”

Dipi Khilnani, Chairman of Clean Energy Holdings added:

“We are very excited about Globeleq’s entry into the business. We are confident we will deliver competitive, environmentally positive solutions to the growing demand in Nigeria, particularly given Globeleq’s extensive experience and track record across the continent. As a business, we have always had a strong commitment to the development of Nigeria and this investment significantly strengthens our capability.”

Globeleq’s entry will provide additional investment to develop and grow the existing pipeline of projects, drive operational excellence and set up the business towards a low carbon future. Upcoming technical improvements to the existing operations and implementing new technology will focus on efficiency and reducing the carbon footprint by displacing diesel and introducing solar generation elements.
