Cross River signs pact on 26 megawatts gas power turbine with Dubai firm
Cross River State has signed an agreement with a Dubai-based firm, Skipper Seil, to provide a 100kva solar lighting generating system.
Also signed was an agreement for a 26-megawatt gas power turbine at the Tinapa Business and Leisure Resort, as well as the training of personnel in the Institute of Technology and Management, Ugep.
At the signing ceremony held at Governor’s Office, Calabar, on Saturday, president of the firm, Mr. Jitender Sachdeva, gave the assurance that his firm would commence construction in two months and that this would ensure a 24-hour power supply in the state.
Responding, Governor Ayade said the 100kvm solar power intervention would serve as a grid for industrial zones across the 18 Local Government Areas of the state.
