Subsidy Removal: President Tinubu to commission NASENI CNG conversion centre

Date:

In fulfilment of his promise to cushion the effects of subsidy removal, and for Sustainable Energy Solutions in the country, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is set to commission the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Conversion, Filling, Reverse Engineering and Training Centre in Utako Abuja.

The event which will take place on Friday, May 31, 2024, marks another NASENI milestone in its commitment to supporting the Federal Government’s Renewed Hope Agenda, particularly on sustainable energy alternatives and a clean energy ecosystem.

The centre equipped with the latest technology and staffed by highly trained professionals to ensure efficient and safe conversions, is aimed at building local capacity in CNG technology.

It will offer comprehensive training programmes for technicians, engineers, and other stakeholders, fostering domestication of expertise in CNG systems and promoting the adoption of green energy solutions across the nation.
Addressing the press on the centre, the Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of the agency, Khalil Suleiman Halilu, as part of pre-launch activities, explained that the establishment of the NASENI-Portland Gas Reverse Engineering Centre marks a transformative moment for Nigeria’s energy sector.

He explained that the CNG Centre underscores NASENI’s unwavering commitment to sustainable innovation and the development of home-grown technological and manufacturing capabilities.

“At NASENI, we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and providing affordable, eco-friendly fuel alternatives to Nigerians.

“The initiative is expected to significantly reduce vehicular emissions, contributing to cleaner air and a healthier environment. Additionally, the adoption of CNG will offer economic benefits by reducing fuel costs for consumers and creating new job opportunities in the Nigeria’s green energy sector,” he said.

“NASENI invites all stakeholders, from vehicle owners to industry professionals, to take advantage of the services and training opportunities available at the new centres. Together, we can drive forward a greener, more sustainable future for Nigeria,” he added.
