Schneider Electric in Nigeria has been awarded the Nigerian Content Equipment Certificate on its assembly facility owing to its commitment to the country’s local content policy.

The certification, which was awarded by the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board, attests to the fact that the firm owns the assembly facility which it uses for integrating electrical and instrumentation equipment in-country. With the certificate, Schneider Electric said in a statement that it could participate in tender submissions relating to process automation, instrumentation and electrical distribution equipment in the oil and gas industry.

Receiving the certificate, the General Manager, Schneider Electric Systems, Nabil Djouhri, said the company promotes local content by continually transferring knowledge and expertise to its local partners, electrical engineers, technicians and system integrators through continuous engagements, support systems and trainings. The company, thus, restated its commitment to investing heavily in research and development on an annual basis.
