Nigeria: Bi-Courtney Begins Multi-Billion Naira Power Upgrade At Murtala Muhammed Airport

Bi-Courtney Aviation Services Limited (BASL) is embarking on a multi-billion naira power enhancement project at the Murtala Muhammed airport terminal in Lagos.

Bi-Courtney says the first phase of the project, which will sustain alternate power supply to the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), will last for about 60 days.

A statement issued by the company's spokesman, Steve Omolale-Ajulo, said the completion of the first phase is expected to bring added advantage to the terminal.

According to Omolale-Ajulo, the first phase involves the upgrade of the capacity of two of the four-unit generators supplying power to the terminal, saying that "BASL hopes that all the relevant agencies and bodies will co-operate to ensure the success of this project."

Omolale-Ajulo added: "The project became necessary to ensure and guarantee continuous uninterrupted power supply, which is one of the best qualities MMA2 is known for since it began operation five years ago. It is also our desire that airline operation is undisturbed and airport concessionaires and users have a comfortable place to operate from.
