Multinational conglomerate, GE, yesterday, announced it would invest $2 billion in facility development, skills training and sustainability initiatives across Africa by 2018.
President and CEO, GE Nigeria, Dr. Lazarus Angbazo, announced this at a collaboration between his company and Dangote Cement Plc, which culminated in the repair of one of Dangote’s GE LM6000 aero-derivative gas engines, that developed a fault after two years of operation.
A statement by the company said GE decided to repair the LM6000 engine in Nigeria, leveraging its worldwide network to assemble the people, parts and tools needed to undertake this skilled and delicate work.
