Chairman of Sagas Sani Dangote disclosed that 5,000 trucks would be converted within a year and that the CNG kits to convert 1,000 are already on ground. “We already have some centers in operation now. We have commenced the training of engineers and other technicians that would undertake the conversion. Our partners are here to put them through,” he commented.
“Sagas will source gas from the NGC through its vast network of pipelines and compress it to a cheaper, cleaner and sustainable alternative fuel or dual fuel, for profitable business,” said Chief Operating Officer of Sagas Henry Van Tienen, who also explained that the conversion was a novel technology in Africa and described it as “safe, convenient and more efficient” than the traditional fuel.
