Iran assists Nigeria in increasing power generation

Jan 13, 2005 01:00 AM

Iran signed an agreement with Nigeria, granting $ 1.5 mm to assist the west African country in tackling its electricity generation problem.
Under the agreement on electricity supply, Iran will be allowed to manufacture transformers in Nigeria for its state-run National Electric Power Authority, at half its current cost when sourced from western nations.

The Nigerian government has announced that it will increase power generation to 10,000 MW by 2007 from the current level of about 3,000 MW in a bid to achieve an end to the frequent power interruption in Africa's most populous country.
The agreement was signed during Iranian President Mohammad Khatami' s three-day state visit, the first by an Iranian president ever to Nigeria.

Nigeria's Ambassador to Iran, Malam Ibrahim Gayana said that an Iranian delegation would be in the country under a collaborative agreement on oil and gas, pointing out that Nigeria would want to learn from the Iranian expertise in offshore drilling technology andgas pipelines.
He said that Iran was more than self sufficient in electricity supply and that Nigeria stood to gain from collaboration with that nation, also a leading gas producer.
