In an effort to enhance the nation’s electrical grid, the Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, has inaugurated new Siemens mobile substations in Lagos and Birnin Kebbi. These installations are part of a broader collaboration between the Nigerian government and Siemens aimed at improving the country’s power transmission capabilities.

During the inauguration, Adelabu highlighted that these substations, with a combined capacity of 123 megawatts, are crucial for strengthening the electricity supply to both businesses and households.
