Nigeria, with 173 million people, has the largest population in Africa. It also is Africa’s largest economy. In 2013, Nigeria’s GDP was US$509.9 billion. Nigeria is attempting to improve its infrastructure, focusing on energy production, including renewable energy sources, as well as power transmission and distribution.
Although Nigeria is rich in energy reserves, and the government has instituted electric power reform regulations and invested in power supplies, Nigeria’s power supply continues to face challenges as its economy develops.
There is still a great gap between power supply and demand and, as a result, the country’s manufacturers, trade enterprises, and homes spend approximately US$21.9 billion a year on purchasing diesel fuel and gasoline to generate electric power.
—Engr. Abiodun Ajifowobaje, Former CEO, Ikeja Electric
In Nigeria, electricity theft often occurred due to the country’s out-of-date electric power infrastructure. The line loss rate was up to 40%.
Electricity bill collection was difficult. Only 60% of the electricity charges were collected, and the time needed to collect the bills was 3 months to 4 months.
There was no IT system that could be used to support service management or process user requirements. O&M staff had to read meters manually and, as a result, meter reading was inefficient and many times inaccurate.
Huawei’s AMI Solution deploys smart electric meters that support multiple electricity theft detection and metering methods.
Huawei’s AMI Solution builds a smart metering network that collects power utilization information in real time and generates alarms on electricity theft incidents.
Huawei’s AMI Solution deploys IT-based application systems that analyze line losses and electricity theft behavior through data statistics, and enables automatic charging, dunning, and selling of prepaid electricity.
Ikeja Electric has reduced their line losses by 31% and shortened the bill collection time period from three months to zero months, thus achieving real-time bill collection.
Ikeja Electric is able to audit processes, reducing labor force costs by up to 90% by using the IT-based office systems.
The open and unified management platform accelerates electricity charging and bill collection, and integrates application systems such as electronic bills, improving work efficiency and user experience.
