President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the establishment of a world-class transformer production plant in Nigeria in collaboration with China Great Wall Industry Corporation (CGWIC) of China.

The Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI), Professor Mohammad Sani Haruna, disclosed this at the State House correspondents after a meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to him, the President had directed that the project be fast-tracked to accelerate stable power supply in the country.

He noted that the project for the establishment of a transformer manufacturing plant in the country was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic in China.

According to him, the President was anxious to see the output of the product, its impact on the availability of power, because power supply will never be stable until the country produced some components locally, including transformer.
He said the plant when established would produce between 6.5 and 10 megawatt transformers of all sizes and different capacity to meet local demands and Nigerian standards.
