A major leap toward establishing the Federal Government’s proposed Transformer Manufacturing plant and High voltage Testing Laboratory was recorded yesterday as sixty (60) engineers from the National Agency for Science and Engineering Infrastructure (NASENI) departed the country to China for Training.

The training programme for  the 60 enginneers has the target to establish a fully indigenous Transformer plant to be operated and managed by Nigerians with local content as priority, the agency said in a statement yesterday.

The Transformer Manufacturing Plant and Testing Laboratory are to be located at the Power Equipment and Electrical Machinery Development Institute (PEEMADI), Okene, Kogi State.

PEEMADI is one of the Institutes under NASENI.

The Executive Vice Chairman/CE of NASENI, Professor Mohammed Sani Haruna while addressing the trainees before leaving the country said he felt fulfilled that a new phase in the journey toward having Nigeria’s own transformer manufacturing plant & High Voltage Testing Laboratory had opened with the departure to China of enginneers of NASENI.

He said he was grateful to President Muhammadu Buhari and the Minister of Science and Technology Dr.Ogbonnaya Onu for the confidence reposed in NASENI and its management to facilitate the project.
