Dutch company Solarge signs contract for solar panel production in Nigeria

The Infrastructure Corporation of Nigeria (InfraCorp) has inked a deal with African Green Infrastructure Investment Bank (AfGIIB) and Solarge to establish a lightweight solar panel factory in Africa.

Dutch company Solarge, known for producing lightweight solar panels in Weert, has expressed its intent to export the concept of its factory to Africa.

“This partnership represents a pivotal moment in aligning our goals with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s vision for local manufacturing capabilities that drive employment, accelerate electrification, and foster economic growth,” InfraCorp said of the Memorandum of Understanding. “And all this while Nigeria is being led towards decarbonization in line with its energy transition commitments.”

“We are proud and honored to have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with InfraCorp and the African Green Infrastructure Investment Bank on behalf of Solarge at the UN climate summit COP 28 for large-scale production of our lightweight solar panels in Nigeria,” said Gerard de Leede, chief technology officer of Solarge. “Our joint efforts will contribute to the realization of a sustainable and resilient energy future for the country.”

The plant will produce lightweight solar panels with an ultra-low carbon footprint, making Nigeria “a global leader in sustainable local manufacturing and critical infrastructure,” according to InfraCorp.

The initiative for the plant aligns closely with InfraCorp’s commitment to sustainable development and growth of the economy, striving to provide climate-resilient infrastructure for a cleaner and greener Nigeria.
