Arla Foods Nigeria, makers of Dano Milk, has unveiled a 4-year energy transition plan to build a solar power plant for its dairy farm in Kaduna.
In a statement, it said the plant would lead to generating up to 750KVA installed capacity by 2027.
The Managing Director, Arla Foods Nigeria, Peder Pedersen, during the opening session of the 2023 Nordic Nigeria Connect in Lagos explained that the energy transition plan aligns with the company’s sustainability strategy.
Pedersen said the company wants to create the future of dairy that brings health and inspiration to the world, naturally, by taking actions that support a stronger planet, thereby improving the environment for future generations.
On his part, the Senior Manager, Corporate Affairs, Arla Foods Nigeria, Akalaka Obazei, during a presentation stated that Phase 1 of the project would be a hybrid solution of 250kVA standard solar plus diesel that will lead to an annual diesel cost saving of about £143,910 while also reducing carbon emissions by about 300 – 350 tons per year with one-year payback period.
