Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas company (NLNG) has commissioned the NLNG-University of Ibadan Engineering Laboratory Complex as part of the company’s $12 million University Support Programme.
The University of Ibadan laboratory complex is the second of six laboratories to be commissioned by the company after the NLNG-ABU Multi-User Engineering was commissioned in November 2015.
NLNG spent $2 million on the project, with the University of Ibadan providing counterpart funding of over N300 million for the complex which houses the first automation engineering laboratory in Nigeria.
The commissioning was witnessed by Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi, represented by his deputy, Chief Moses Alake Adeyemo, representatives of NLNG board and management, the university council, lawmakers and guests from the public and private sectors.
NLNG Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Babs Omotowa said the implementation of the projects was guided by each university’s peculiar technical needs and specifications bearing in mind their realities and comparative advantages, as well as the conviction that this was the best and most efficient model for project delivery and partnership.
“It is our hope that the joint work undertaken over the past two years between UI and Nigeria LNG and of course today’s momentous event, will be key towards promoting engineering research and innovation, as well as seeking solutions to our nation’s infrastructure and underdevelopment challenges,” he noted.
“It is critical that NLNG’s partnership with UI and our investment here, contribute to the urgent task of nation building through modern scientific interventions. We must revitalise Research and Development (R&D) in Nigeria. We are confident that this facility will provide staff, students, researchers, engineers and scientists, easy access to world class facilities that will enhance their work, improve skills and boost the rating of this faculty and the entire university,” the managing director added.
The projects in the remaining four universities are at different levels of completion.
