Siemens offers a wide range of solutions and services in Nigeria, where its, Energy, Healthcare, Industry and Infrastructure & Cities Sectors occupy leading positions. In fiscal 2012, Siemens in Nigeria scored major successes in all four Sectors:
Siemens won a contract to construct the 434-MW Geregu II power plant for the Nigerian utility Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC). Siemens supplied and installed three SGT5-800 gas turbines and ancillary equipment for the 134-MW captive power project in Ibese (Ogun State) for the Dangote Group, a major conglomerate in Nigeria and Africa. As part of the ongoing privatization of national power generation and distribution companies in Nigeria, Siemens provided consulting services and technical support for the replacement and maintenance of power generation, transmission and distribution equipment. Privatization of Nigeria's electrical power industry is expected to result in greater efficiency, significantly enhanced capacity and improved services. Siemens is currently implementing a strategy to expand the local workforce of its Oil & Gas Division and strengthening its field service operations team. The company is also finalizing plans to set up a service workshop in Port Harcourt, Nigeria, to meet the service and maintenance requirements of its oil and gas customers.
The Nigerian government is planning to significantly upgrade the country's healthcare infrastructure. In this environment, Siemens Nigeria continued to make progress in the healthcare field in Nigeria and Ghana. Equipment supply orders were received from the Ministry of Health in Ghana for the university hospitals in Accra and Kumasi. Siemens also received orders to supply radiology equipment to Eku Baptist Hospital in Nigeria's Delta State.
In fiscal 2012, the Industry Sector received orders to supply and install electrical equipment for several large manufacturing companies in Nigeria, including United Cement Company Nigeria Ltd, Shell Petroleum Development Company, Unilever Nigeria plc, Lagos State Water Corporation, Nigerian Breweries Plc, Integrated Steel Company Plc and the Dangote Group. Other key projects included the supply of electrical spare parts for United Cement Company Nigeria Plc, the repair and overhauling of electric motors for Lagos State Water Corporation and the provision of specialist support services for Shell Petroleum Development Company.
In Nigeria, the Infrastructure & Cities Sector was very active in the low- and medium-voltage and smart grid market segments. Siemens implemented several substation automation projects across Nigeria and designed, supplied and installed several numerical protection relay systems as well as power line carrier equipment for the Transmission Company of Nigeria, the national power transmission company. The Siemens Power Academy, which was established in 2010, also invested significant resources in order to develop human capital and facilitate the transfer of skills and technology for customers in Nigeria and West Africa. Power distribution utilities and other industries and manufacturing organizations across Nigeria benefitted from Siemens' advanced, modular and innovative low- and medium-voltage products. Siemens continued to be a preferred supplier of medium-voltage equipment for 132/33/11-kV substations around the country. Siemens also implemented key projects for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of indoor switchgear, power transformers and auxiliaries for 33/11-kV substation systems. Important customers of the Infrastructure and Cities Sector included the PHCN Distribution Companies, SHELL, Total, Arab Contractors, Dantata & Sawoe, Access Bank, First Bank, Unilever, Flour Mills of Nigeria, the Dangote Group and Nigerian Breweries.
The presence of Siemens in Nigeria dates back to the 1950s when a trading company in the country began selling Siemens electrical products. Siemens established its first Representative Office in Nigeria in 1970. Today, Siemens in Nigeria has developed into a strong and highly respected company. Good corporate citizenship is intrinsic to the company's business activities. Siemens is fully committed to a business strategy that generates profits while contributing to the well-being of the societies it serves. Siemens' goal is to ensure that Nigeria continues to maintain a strong position in Africa's dynamic, knowledge-based economy.
