Nigeria: NAMA Installs Solar Panels At Five Airports

The Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) has completed the first phase of the installation of Solar Power at five major airports to check incessant power failures on its navigational aids with the project costing about N280 million, it said in a statement.

The airports include Lagos, Abuja, Kano, Port Harcourt, Enugu and Bida enroute station. The contractor, Otunba Tunde Morakinyo, Chairman, Stormberg Power Limited, described the hybrid power system in the country as first of its kind in sub-Saharan Africa, promising that the second phase of the project would commence early 2013.

While handing over the completed projects to the Managing Director of MAMA, Engineer Mazi Nnamdi Udoh, at the agency's head office in Lagos, he indicated that the project was completed as scheduled and according to specification.
