Firm Sees Bamboo As An Alternative To End Power Crisis


Recent studies has confirmed that electricity can be generated from bamboo. The technology is ready, but only being used currently on small scale. In this light, Suxe International Ltd has pledged to end the crisis  of inadequate generated power through the conversion of power from bamboo. This might just be a step forward in tackling the present power crisis rocking the country.
Speaking in an exclusive chat with pressmen, the Chief Executive Officer of Suxe International Ltd, Trevor David Smith, said the bamboo revolution is a step towards ensuring a light up Nigeria and providing job opportunity for the people. He stated:
“We intend to generate power from bamboo and sell to the Nigeria people at a cheaper rate. We intend to uplift the country and the communities away from current power crisis. We intend establishing 40 power stations in Nigeria. We intend having all workforce Nigerians and just the manager coming from my company. As it worth, we are going to train Nigerians and make sure they are equipped to be able to run the system after five years of our installation and practice.”
Mr. Smith speaking on why his company is bringing this development to the most populous black nation within the dark continent said;
“We brought the solution to Nigeria as the first in Africa. Power stations are not working on renewable energy and grid system. What we are waiting for is to carry out a test with the bamboo which would show independence in power generation away from oil, gas or coal. We are to begin by January 2018. All that is needed is to get the land. Nigeria is our target for the project. From the bamboo we would grow, power would be generate from them.”
He added that his company has made all modalities as regards funding for the project and they are not calling for financial support, other than the land for the cultivation of bamboo and the human resource to work with. Speaking on issues confronting the power sector in the country, Smith noted:

“There are two issues hampering the development of power in Nigeria. The first is corruption which has been identified and is been tackled by the government, while the second is the power industry system. The biggest fault in the power sector is trying to make a national grid. This is the fault of the designers. We usually put power stations where there is fuel which is not the best.”

It seems Suxe International Ltd are set on delivering their promises, as this is not an attempt to bamboozle Nigerians.
