Siemens Limited said it is looking to deploy off-grid power solutions in Nigeria as part of efforts to promote energy efficiency in Nigeria.
Mrs. Onyeche Tifase, the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Siemens Limited Nigeria, made this known in Lagos at the launch of the new Siemens brand claim, ‘Ingenuity for Life’.
Her words, “We are looking at off-grid solutions and mini-grid solutions for universities, using them as exporters of energy because a university is a small hub in itself or a small city.
“We are also looking at how we can convince the German government to do what it has done already in other countries in the world – to advise government and share lessons learnt. So, we can start to change the way we even make decisions at critical levels because these things delay projects; they discourage investors. The good thing about where we are now is that people are starting to get more creative and ingenious.
She said the company was proud and excited about the new brand statement, adding that, “It aptly describes and expresses what drives us; what we do; what we are into; what we create and the added value we create for our customers, employees partners and the society at large.
She said, “As the world becomes more complex and interconnected, there are tougher questions being asked on how we can sustainably ensure faster and more efficient transportation, stable and affordable power, safe and portable drinking water and accessible health care, and so on.
“In Nigeria, we are proud of the legacies we have built here over the past 46 years and our commitment to remain unwavering despite the challenges we are facing now. Siemens is here for the long term; when things are turned around, we want to be here fixing things, building things, teaching, advising, transferring technology, and sharing technology and technological best practices.”
