Environmental testing takes place at Anjeed Kafanchan Project Site
A team of Anjeed Innova Group experts, government and law enforcement officials, and government agency representatives recently conducted environmental testing of the Anjeed Kafanchan 100MW Solar Project site.
Joining Anjeed Innova Group’s Samaila Yahaya and Sunday Daniel were government representatives Odende Anthony Joseph, Stephen Joseph and Nehemiah; of Maigizoh, Zikpak and Jema’a Local Government Area respectively. Nigeria Police, the Kaduna Environmental Protection Agency (KEPA) and the Kaduna State Urban Planning and Development Authority (KASUPDA) also had representatives overseeing and participating in the Environmental Impact Assessment.
The assessment consisted of more than 40 individual tests, carried out in line with Federal environmental standards. The results will provide a baseline that must be maintained throughout the life of the Project. In line with Anjeed Innova Group’s ZERO HARM policy, the goal of Anjeed Innova Group and its Anjeed Kafanchan Solar subsidiary is to improve on all baselines.
Anjeed Kafanchan Solar Senior Site Manager Emmanuel Waje led a support team with KEPA and KASUPDA to ensure testing was done according to the highest international standards. As it has from the beginning, community support for the Anjeed Kafanchan Solar Project remains high.
While on-site in Kafanchan, the Anjeed Innova Group field team was presented with a letter expressing the Fantswam Chiefdom’s ongoing support and acknowledging the people’s position in favor of the 100MW expansion. Exploring and implementing innovative renewable energy solutions is important to Anjeed Innova Group but short-term solutions that improve lives only through increased access to reliable power is not enough.
Everyone benefits when companies take their corporate social responsibility seriously, as Anjeed Innova Group and all its subsidiaries do with their commitment to ZERO HARM. ZERO HARM: Going beyond personnel safety, to empower West Africa’s people, develop communities, and preserve the environment to enrich the lives of future generations.
