Sandrove is developing strategic partnerships with renewable energy companies that are leaders in their own chosen innovative clean energy products range, whose products fits into our corporate philosophy, vision and niche market. Our aim is to provide energy efficient products, mini and off grids renewable energy systems and services that are environmentally friendly and therefore reduce Nigeria's carbon footprint. Based on the experience of our international technical partners in combination with our local skills and knowledge, we develop renewable energy projects in the most professional and scientific way. Now, for the first time, commercial buildings, rural communities in the riverine areas, can easily and efficiently harness the power of the wind and sun. We provide the technology and expertise our customers need to meet this growing demand, from floating solar platforms and wind energy technology to comprehensive consultancy services, advice and support..
At the request of several investors, we are conducting project reviews for the purchase of micro wind energy, floating solar platforms projects (due diligences). These reviews are the basis for decision-making prior to any acquisition. For this purpose we offer the following services:
*Yield prediction of energy projects.
*Investment cost calculations and checking.
*Site verification and rating.
*Wind prediction and wind modeling
*Floating Solar platforms and deployment.
*Risk management and observation.
*Consultancy and assistance for investors.
Comprehensive reporting and *investment recommendation
The following services are offered in our field of activities:
*Choice of location and planning of location for renewable energy projects.
*Pre-project development, project identification.
*Wind measurements and studies of wind potential.
*Energy yield predictions for floating solar platforms and micro wind energy project and micro-siting of wind farm layouts.
*Emission- and immission predictions (noise, shadow flickering).
*Project and realisation planning
Tendering and contract arrangements.
*Complete approval procedure until building permission.
For the implementation of the systems and projects planned by us, the following services are offered:
*Offer comparison and awarding of contracts.
*Control, monitoring and documentation of construction phase.
*Construction and plant inspection
*Cost and quality control.
The Niger Delta occupies 7.5% of the total land area of Nigeria, 70,000km2, and is home to approximately 30 million people. This number is increasing quickly and therefore the need to address the currently neglected basic needs of the population is of paramount importance. The Niger Delta region accounts for over 90 per cent of Nigeria’s proven gas and oil reserves, and the sector currently earns the Federal Government more than 90% of its foreign exchange. Yet despite this enormous wealth of natural and human resources, essential services such as electricity, sanitation, healthcare and primary education have not been delivered to communities. Energy poverty, poor governance, gas flaring, and oil pollution are just some of the myriad issues facing the people of the Niger Delta. The United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) summary of the situation in the Niger Delta is disappointingly accurate. The paradox that a country with an abundance of natural resources, specifically non-renewable (e.g. minerals and fossil fuels) tends to have a negative effect on economic growth and development than countries with fewer natural resources. Challenges aside, the Niger Delta is one of the most beautiful environments in the world. The biodiversity is spectacularly rich – from abundant plant and fish populations, to primates and the largest diversity of butterfly species in the world. The people are warm and welcoming and have a vibrant culture extending back thousands of years to some of the most advanced centres of civilization in Africa. These are just a few of the many motivations to stop the environmental degradation..
Nigeria is naturally rich in renewable energy resources, and although the coastal and riverine rural population are currently unable to connect to the national grid because of financial, technical and environmental constraints in extending the grid to these remote areas. Sandrove believes that power can be generated for these off grid and coastal communities using stand alone renewable energy technology such as floating solar, micro wind turbine or hybrid systems. Coastal cities and riverine communities cannot meet their energy needs with solar panels spread, due to shortage of land. Hence we are advocating the use and deployment of floating solar platforms and micro wind turbine technologies because of the wind speeds that make wind a viable renewable energy source in the coastal and riverine communities in Nigeria. Renewable energy has considerable potential in Nigeria, and could bridge the major energy gaps in rural areas. The scale of opportunities is only just becoming apparent as new grid technologies such as floating solar platforms and micro wind turbines are emerging as in competitors with conventional power generation. The supply of grid electricity, liquid fuels and renewable alternatives is notoriously poor in Nigeria. The problem is particularly acute in the Niger Delta, where the logistical challenges of physical access and functional supply chains are barriers that prevent access for millions. Instead, private diesel generation for businesses and social services makes life expensive and noisy, while the reliance on wood fuels and kerosene for basic household needs are a key driver in deforestation and a major threat to public health.
