Lekki, in Lagos, has become one of the Nigerian state’s fastest growing districts.
Located to the east of Lagos city, it’s a booming and bustling area where new and luxurious residential developments are springing up all the time.
Admiralty Heights, built by Five Cowrie Creek Condominiums Limited, is one of the district’s most desirable addresses. It’s home to affluent families and young professionals due to its exceptional quality and proximity to the city’s commercial hub.
The desirable waterfront homes are connected to the national power grid. However, despite the Nigerian government making huge investments in energy infrastructure, the electricity supply remains under stress and is unreliable.
For quality construction companies such as Five Cowrie Creek, providing reliable back-up power is a necessity. If the grid goes down, residents simply cannot fail to notice.
The company’s search for the best standby solution saw it connect with regional generator supplier Jubaili Bros. With an outstanding reputation for building and supplying only the best global gensets, the company was the ideal choice.
Understanding the client’s need for a top-end power solution that would match the high-end values of the development, Jubaili Bros. proposed two Marapco MP350 generator sets, powered by Perkins® 2206A-E13TAG2 engines.
The Marapco generator sets, designed and assembled in the UK and backed by more than 20 years of experience of the company as a diesel generator supplier, provide the dependable standby power residents need.
The 2206A-E13TAG2 engines that power them, like the rest of Perkins® 2000 Series engines, are at the core of this reliability. Built from a proven heavy-duty industrial base, they give superior performance and steadfast service. The power-to-weight ratio of the engines results in exceptional fuel economy, while at the same time delivering the 350-500 kVA standby power needed whenever the grid fails to deliver.
According to CEO Oluremi Ajose-Adeogun, it was a straightforward decision to choose a power solution delivered by Marapco and Perkins.
