Langley is refining its teamwork, as exemplified by the supply of 120 power plants in Nigeria with Bergen engines and Marelli alternators.

According to the British company, the project will provide heat and power to a major new industrial complex and its surrounding area in the Calabar region of Nigeria’s Cross River State. The 120MW plant will comprise of ten 12MW Bergen B36:45V20 gas engines fitted with Marelli Motori alternators. Each generator set will have a weight of over 175 tonnes. The gas-fired combined cycle heat & power plant is designed with high overall energy efficiency, reduced emissions and the flexibility to support renewables as they become available.

The complex being powered by Bergen will be home to many new developments for the Calabar region. Plans include a biotechnology research laboratory, a nano-water plant for production of hydrogenated drinking water, and a waste transformation recycling center that features biofertilizers and the ability to process used tyres and plastics. The contract was formally signed in front of Sir Benedict Ayade, Executive Governor of Cross River State earlier this month. During the project’s announcement, Governor Ayade said: “Our greatest challenge is power, so the fact that you can provide an alternative source of power, using a very classic technology like gas-to-liquid, is a welcomed development. I want to thank APPL for the choice of Cross River State and for the massive employment opportunity this will bring onboard.”

The development will be undertaken between Bergen Engines AS and Nigeria’s Alternative Petroleum & Power Ltd (APPL), supported by Lagos consulting engineers Kelm Engineering Ltd and Diesel Electric Services (PTY) Ltd of South Africa. Mr Godwin Ikwue, CEO of APPL, said: “With Bergen Engines’ long history of proven and cutting-edge technology, high performance, reliability and cost-effective operation, along with customized service agreements and training, we have a guarantee of maximum plant availability and low operating costs.”
