Petrocam keen on utilizing solar energy to power more fuel service stations
As part of the company’s drive to increase its local presence in the downstream sector of Nigeria’s fuel and gas industry, Petrocam Nigeria Limited, a subsidiary of Petrocam Trading (Pty) Limited of South Africa has opened another solar-powered fuel service station in Lagos.
The company’s major focus was importing refined fuel products such as naphtha, lubricants and greases for the fuel marketing companies in Nigeria, before its current drive to penetrate the local market. With the recent addition, the company presently has three fuel service stations that are solar powered. Gennex Technologies is the provider of solar solutions for Petrocam Stations. The 112 kilowatt-capacity solar power panels would guarantee 24 hours of uninterrupted power supply to the station. Source: Energy Mix Report PWKD06042017
