LANDMARK UNIVERSITY TO EXPLORE ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SOONEST
Landmark University will be leaving no stone unturned as it is set to generate alternative source of energy which will serve the University Community and its environs in no distant time. Based on this development, the Management of Landmark University on Thursday 18th October, 2018, hosted the representatives of Renewable Energy African Group (RENAFRIC) to set out modalities for the kickoff of the project.
While giving his remarks, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adeniyi Olayanju revealed the importance of the project to the University at leading a frontier in that area for other higher institutions to emulate. He averred that the school is committed to taking the lead in innovative and solution driven projects such as renewable energy. “From all ramifications, energy is key to sustenance. Power is central to any meaningful development in an organization and society as a whole. If the drive to achieve Sustainable Development Goals is real in the society, premium is quest for a reliable power supply supportive of uninterrupted developmental and research activities made the University Management consider your presentation as capable of adding value to our University.”
He noted that RENAFRIC as an organization is replete with Renewable Energy Experts producing Sustainable Biomass Electricity at Zero Opex from Agricultural Waste through Four per Hour Pyrolysis Plant. Professor Olayanju emphasized that the organization is capable of producing sustainable Zero Opex 1,080KWh or 9,460.8MWh of Biomass Electricity per annum in the first year of operation, into the Captive Grid of the University. When the project materializes, it is expected to create jobs and training for students on PYROLYSIS TECHNOLOGY, being conscious of nature which is environmentally friendly power supply, he added. Noting the commitment of the University to best global practice and ability to solve indigenous challenges for global recognition the Vice-Chancellor believed that collaboration with relevant top notch organizations, and driving steady power supply is irreversible, as the University looks forward to a cross breeding of ideas and accessing technical expertise of RENAFRIC in boosting the institution’s power generation and supply capacity.
During his presentation, the Leader of the Group, Engineer Abiola Oluwaseuniyi revealed some benefits of the project as 24hours power supply to the University community and its environ, free Biofuel equipment, training of staff and student amongst others. Engr. Oluwaseuniyi noted that the plant when completed would provide immediate employment to over hundred people, promote a healthy and safe environment as well as positioning Landmark University as attaining new frontiers in the area of alternative energy which would in turn save the Nation from the epileptic power generation and supply.
He however applauded the agrarian vision of the Proprietor base which he said will indeed restore the dignity of the black race. “Landmark is where people are approaching Nigeria to make Nigeria the real Nigeria. Nigeria has the best raw material to develop the technology that can create monumental development for the continent and we can domesticate electricity industry here”.
