ABUJA, (CAJ News) – A PARTNERSHIP has been announced to provide critical expertise and workforce training essential for the Nigeria’s power sector.

TE Connectivity (TE), a global leader in connectivity, has announced the strategic partnership with the National Power Training Institute of
Nigeria (NAPTIN).

It comes as recently, Nigeria’s power sector has experienced setbacks due to the inadequacy of infrastructure and poor output of energy efficiency throughout the sector.

TE, which is a global leader in providing reliable and cost-effective products and solutions for the electrical power industry, is now partnering with NAPTIN to develop solutions to the challenges facing the sector, through the training and development of local talent.

TE experts will work with NAPTIN’s trainers and provide technical training on the connectivity required to enable power systems.

The training will be based on TE’s high-quality products and solutions including the industry-leading Raychem product line.

Once complete, NAPTIN will organize training sessions at its facilities for local installers.

Ronnie Fotheringham, head of the TE Energy Project in Nigeria stated, “As the government of Nigeria invests in upgrading and expanding the power network, the country also needs to invest in its people – developing the skills and expertise required to develop and maintain that network.’’

He said the partnership with NAPTIN was a significant step in that direction. It furthers the mission by bringing the proven solutions,
technical know-how and broad application experience to NAPTIN and those being trained.

“We view this partnership as beneficial to the Nigerian power vision and to TE, building deeper connections throughout the country,” said Fotheringham.
