The installation of solar solutions at Snake Island Integrated Free Zone marks the completion of the first phase of Nigerdock's transition to renewable energy sources.

Nigerdock CEO Maher Jarmakani said: “As a self-sustaining economic hub, improving our energy consumption and reducing our carbon footprint is pivotal to our long-term operations and success. Our renewable energy solution will provide us and our growing clientele with consistent power and greater ease to conduct business.”

As part of its effort to create sustainable, reliable, and cost-effective power within the free zone, Nigerdock is working on a project to develop 20 MW of power.

The installation of solar solutions at Snake Island Integrated Free Zone is one part of this initiative. By using solar power, Nigerdock has been able to replace 40% of its daytime energy use. This has led to a decrease of about 2,000 metric tons of CO2 and helped the company reach important emission reduction goals.

The next step in Nigerdock's journey towards green port status involves expanding its solar power capacity. This demonstrates the company's commitment to Nigeria's Climate Change Act, the Blue Economy, and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.
