Clarke Energy worked with SCTB to develop a technical solution to deliver a permanent supply of reliable electricity from pipeline-sourced natural gas.
This installation will be our first in Cameroon and will immediately start to deliver cost savings and reliable energy to our customer SCTB, said Ali Hjaiej, business development director Africa, Clarke Energy.
By increasing its gas-to-power efficiency rate and reducing diesel fuel consumption, SCTB also will be able to reduce carbon emissions at its mills.
The J420 gas engine will enable SCTB to save on fuel while accessing reliable power for its operations, said Oluwatoyin Abegunde, sub-Saharan region leader for GEs Distributed Power business.
SCTB has been a key player in Cameroons food industry since 1996 and is a leading producer and exporter of flour.
