The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said that bout 159 power Equipment containers of various power equipment abandoned by contractors are still stranded at various seaports across the country, The Punch reports.
The TCN stated that in the last one year, it had been able to clear 550 power Equipment Containers out of a total of 759 that were abandoned by contractors at seaports for several years. The Interim Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, TCN, Usman Mohammed, disclosed this at the January 2018 Power Dialogue organised by Nextier Power, a power consultancy firm, in Abuja on Wednesday night.
He said that most of the original equipment manufacturers abroad are interested in supplying equipment to Nigeria but they are not interested in participating in the implementation of projects inside Nigeria so they enter into contracts with some local people. “Most of the time, the equipment are shipped to the ports but the local parties do not clear them. And that is why the TCN has the highest number of stranded containers in the ports.”
