    Schneider Electric delivers 3 turnkey power substations to Nestle PLC.

    Schneider Electric Nigeria recently completed a turnkey electrical distribution project for Nestle PLC factories in Agbara. The upgrade of the electrical distribution network which comprised of the design, manufacturing, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of 3 sub stations as well as state of the art low voltage and medium voltage equipments has complemented Nestle PLC’s ambition to grow its power supply from 3MW to 7MW with a capacity to extend to 10MW in the future.

    Speaking during a reception in honour of Schneider Electric Nigeria to mark the successful completion of the project, Mr. Alexandre Richoz, Nestle Project Manager, Agbara factory, said the company was happy to work with Schneider Electric on the power project. According to him ’Nestle is pleased to partner with Schneider Electric to achieve the revamp and upgrade of our power facility. The quality of work done by Schneider Electric underscores the company’s pedigree as a global leader in energy management ‘.

    Mr. Richoz further stated that throughout the duration of the project, Schneider Electric’s engineers worked round the clock to ensure that the project was completed ahead of schedule.  ‘The professionalism and dedication of Schneider Electric’s team was brought to bear on the project as no stone was left unturned to ensure its timely completion. It is worthy of note that the project was finished and delivered to us ahead of the completion date ‘, he added.

    In his reaction at the occasion, Marcel Hochet, Country President of Schneider Electric Nigeria thanked Nestle for the opportunity of executing the project. He said the power project was another platform for Schneider Electric to demonstrate its expertise in providing customized solutions to the energy needs of its customers. ‘Schneider Electric is honoured to have been given this great opportunity by Nestle. We are extremely proud that we have proven our capabilities as energy managers and not just a preferred supplier of products and equipments. The next step for us is to deepen the collaboration, improve your business operations and profitability while ensuring that as your energy manager, you indeed make the most of your energy.

    He also thanked Nestle for the support and cooperation offered to the project team from Schneider Electric without which it would have been difficult to complete the project ahead of schedule. ‘We are grateful to Nestle for the invaluable support which was provided to our project team. The synergy between your team and ours has no doubt made this feat possible. We look forward to working together again with Nestle in the future’, he concluded.
