Globally, thriving enterprises sprout on the identification of problems and flourish by proffering solutions to the problems for commensurate remuneration. This is where the win-win philosophy appeals to mankind the most.
This ideology might have inspired a frontline Nigerian corporate citizen, MOJEC International Limited, a wholly indigenous company to approach its business operations with an eye toward solving problems within the energy sector. The company has a strong footprint in Nigeria, Africa, and the Middle East, where it is delivering on smart meter manufacturing, clean energy, and other business areas. This is just one of the firsts, as MOJEC is the only player in the energy sector to have such footprints across the world.
The Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, MOJEC International, Chantelle Abdul is quick to pin the company’s history of firsts on its innovative drive, which has seen it deliver consistently on its corporate mantra of “building a world of possibilities in the midst of impossibilities.”
According to Abdul the numerous issues plaguing the Nigerian power sector are not pretty difficult to identify. “To mitigate these challenges,” the GMD noted, “MOJEC has intensified efforts towards ensuring a level of stability in the power sector. Our priority has been to see Nigerians have access to electricity, as well as paying for only what they consume.”
Driven by this vision, MOJEC has risen to become “the largest manufacturer, distributor, installer of smart metering, power generation and energy solutions services provider in all of Sub-Saharan Africa,” Abdul added.
The company also pioneered the introduction of smart meters in the country and painstakingly delivered with its production and installation capacity which have come in handy in helping to propagate the objectives of the Federal Government of Nigeria’s (FGN) agenda, in the areas of increasing Nigeria’s metering rate; increasing local meter manufacturing capacity to strengthen the local meter value chain; creating jobs in the local meter value chain, and supporting the Nigerian economy by eliminating erratic billings.
Another historical first of the Group is pioneering the Mobile MAP initiative, its meter penetration and partnership idea, with which the Mojec Meter Asset Management Company Limited (M3AC) has been pushing to get more Nigerians conveniently metered.
This initiative has seen MOJEC partner with as many as nine out of the 11 power distribution companies (DisCos) across the country. In pursuit of this and other astute strategies, MOJEC had produced and installed over one million smart meters in the Nigerian market, which is another first.
According to the GMD “No single company has contributed largely to closing the Nigerian metering gap as MOJEC has done.”
