Powergas Africa Limited is set to change the fortunes of manufacturing firms throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
Headed by Mr. Deepak Khilnani, the Company’s ‘Gas on Wheels’ service is providing firms with a real alternative to dirty and expensive diesel fuel, offering the region’s manufacturing sector a new lease of life.
Speaking on the challenges faced by most manufacturing companies in Nigeria, Mr. Khilnani, Chief Executive Officer, Powergas Africa said that the need for the adoption of Gas to Power Solutions by manufacturers in Nigeria is inevitable, because energy costs is a major challenge faced by most manufacturing companies today.
Also, Mr. Khilnani noted that most companies depend on Diesel Generators for their power requirements and this comes at a very high cost coupled with its impact on environment and public health.
He stressed that CNG/LNG remain one of the most reliable source of fuel for power generation for industries that require constant power for their production & processes, and in addition, to eradicate the above negative impacts of Diesel on Environment & Public Health, it is also cost effective and ‘Pilferage-Proof”.
“Many companies have shut down because of expensive energy cost, but when a company adopts CNG, they save money, cost becomes low, they make more profit, pay more tax, employ more people and pay their salaries promptly.
He also applauded the recent efforts and policy implementation of the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) in the Power and Energy Sector, especially the giant strides that have been taken in the Gas-to-Power Sector.
He emphasized that the future of a resource-rich, high populous and power-deficit economy like Nigeria remains in the adoption of Domestic Natural Gas as a source of Fuel for Power Generation.
This will decrease the pressure on the economy from Dollar-based Fuel Imports, and moreover will position Nigeria as a leader in Africa and set example for other Developing Nations to cut down its Carbon Emissions.
Mr. Khilnani reiterated the company’s deep commitment to ethical standards and professionalism, which has brought Powergas Africa naturally into the clean and renewable energy segment.
