Militsa Mancheva — PowerChina said on Tuesday that its unit Beijing Engineering Corp Ltd has agreed to develop both solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind power plants in Nigeria.

The subsidiary has entered into a cooperation agreement on the matter with the government of Kogi state and a local power firm on January 24.

They, however, did not disclose any specific details around the projects.

Located in the central parts of the country, Kogi state aims to deal with its serious power shortage problem by focusing on the development of its renewable energy resources, its governor explained. Therefore, it will provide the Chinese firm with all relevant support for the execution of the planned schemes, he added.

Beijing-based PowerChina, also known as Power Construction Corp of China, offers engineering and construction services globally with a focus on renewable, thermal power and power transmission projects.
