Nigeria will build four nuclear power plants

Nigeria is in talks with Russia’s Rosatom to build as many as four nuclear power plants costing about $ 80bn as Africa’s biggest economy seeks to add 1 200 megawatts of capacity by the end of the decade.

Peak electricity output of Africa’s biggest economy is about 3 800 MW, with a further 1 500 MW unavailable due to gas shortages. South Africa, with a third of Nigeria’s population yet eight times more installed capacity has also signed an agreement with Rosatom as the nation looks to add 9 600 MW of atomic power to its strained grid.

Rosatom would hold a majority, controlling stake in Nigeria’s nuclear facility, while the rest would be owned by the country, with roles to be specified in contracts.

The plants would be financed by Rosatom, which would than build, own, operate and transfer them to the government.

Nigeria, with a population of around 170 million, broke up its monopoly on power generation and distribution by privatizing the sector two years ago, hoping to attract foreign investors.

High pressure valves

ARMATUREN-TECHNIK is since its foundation in 1995 under pressure. The company from Oberhausen, Germany designes and produces hight pressure valves for power plant applications according to customer specifications. Shut-off valves, control valves, steam conditioning valves and turbine bypass stations are made of forged steel which endure in high pressure and high temperature environments. “We guarantee a minimum life of 25 years,” explains Manfred Leufgen. “More than twice as much as our competitors. The warranty is twice as long compared to many of our competitors.”

Technically two generations ahead

The CEO of ARMATREN-TECHNIK considers Germany as a leader in power plant construction. “We are technically at least two generations ahead”, Manfred Leufgen is safe for his company. Accordingly the reputation abroad is correspondingly great. The Oberhauseners build their valves in power plants in the Middle East, South America, India, Korea, China and Japan.

In doing so, the foreign customers attach great importance to the fact that the quality is “Made in North Rhine-Westphalia”, but still domestic companies are involved. “We can ensure this local share,” says Manfred Leufgen. For example, the partner companies build the housings of the valves under the guidance of employees of the ARMATUREN-TECHNIK. The know-how remains in Oberhausen. In addition to such project-based partnerships, the specialist for high-pressure valves maintains long-term partnerships.


Based in Oberhausen, Germany, ARMATUREN-TECHNIK is an innovative and “engineering-centered” manufacturer of high pressure valves. The company was founded in 1995 and currently employs 21 people. ARMATUREN-TECHNIK today has cooperation partners and customers across the entire globe. The product portfolio consists of a broad array of standard and tailor-made valves and includes turbine regulation stations, control valves, steam valves, bypass valves, gate valves and check valves.
