As an example of this commitment, we are currently working on the Presidential Power Initiative (PPI), which will provide the people of Nigeria with reliable, affordable and more sustainable energy,” said Christian Bruch, President and Global CEO Siemens Energy.
“It has been a most fulfilling journey for us as a company and we are proud to be celebrating 50 years. One of our focused objectives at Siemens was to ensure that Nigeria continues to maintain a leading position in Africa’s dynamic and knowledge-based economy. Fifty years down the line, this goal remains our top priority as demonstrated through our suite of offerings which have been well adapted for the modernization, construction, and financing of Nigeria’s critical infrastructure. Leveraging our history of ingenuity and a passion for engineering, we adopted our approach to the Nigerian market, working with various stakeholders to improve the lives of Nigerians today and in the future. As evidenced by our widely acclaimed track record in Nigeria, we have stood for innovation, growth and development,” said Onyeche Tifase, Siemens Energy Nigeria Managing Director, reflecting on the last five decades of the company in Nigeria.
Siemens Energy has been involved in several notable projects in Nigeria, successfully collaborating with local organizations to develop, operate, maintain and service high-tech equipment and solutions across Power, Oil & Gas, Construction, Manufacturing and other sectors.
