Local Manufacturers Of Electricity Metres To Produce 50,000 Units Per Month



The Electricity Meters Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (EMMAN) on Saturday said it was planning to gradually increase its meter production capacity from 25,000 to 50,000 monthly.

The Executive Secretary of EMMAN), Mr Muideen Ibrahim, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the gradual increment was to meet the country’s metering need and nationwide coverage.

“The presidential initiative on the metering scheme for Nigerians is indeed a good step in the right direction,” Ibrahim said.

“This will bring a lot of improvement to curbing the non-technical losses in the system and contribute immensely to the growth of the country’s GDP in the long run,” he said.

“It will also enhance transfer of technology to the country,” he added.

Ibrahim said that meters manufactured by EMMAN member companies were of international standards. He added that the meters were also tropicalised for the Nigerian environment to withstand the extreme weather condition such as temperature and humidity.
