AFRICON & HYUNDAI Heavy Industries Join Forces to Tackle the Power Generation Shortage in NigeriaFollowing a lengthy research and evaluation of the Energy sector in Nigeria, AFRICON along with Hyundai Heavy Industries, our valued partners in this effort, will provide a solution that, we believe, is the optimum way towards a very quick and final resolution of the power generation problem of the Country.
AFRICON and Hyundai Heavy Industries plan to build as quickly as possible, large power stations in various States of the country in order to cover part of the huge gap between the currently produced energy and the actual demand (gap of approximately over 30,000 MW).
