The winners will be announced at the gala dinner ceremony during the West African Power Industry Convention (WAPIC) on 18 November at the Eko Hotel in Lagos, Nigeria. There are seven award categories, ranging from Lifetime Achievement Award, Power Transaction of the Year to Outstanding Woman in Power.

The enormous investment opportunities in the West African power sector will be in focus during WAPIC with the Nigerian minister of power, Hon. Chinedu O. Nebo, and Heirs Holdings CEO, Tony O. Elumelu, heading up a high-level delegation of speakers from government and the private sector, giving the more than 1000 power professionals the latest updates on the Nigerian power industry’s privatisation and other opportunities in the regional energy sphere.

Utility industry celebrating its heroes
“This is the West African utility industry celebrating its heroes and success stories. It is for the industry and by the industry. Together we are highlighting those companies and executives who have been responsible for pioneering new frontiers, pushing boundaries, for inspiring others and for achieving growth for West Africa”, says WAPIC programme director Irene Ochem.

She continues: “the response from the industry has been overwhelming and each and every category is hotly contested. We have received dozens of entries. And what is so gratifying is that the nominated companies and individuals have all made such important contributions to the power sector in the region. The judges have a tough job choosing the final winners, I do not envy them. Also tickets for the awards are becoming a hot commodity, I want to urge everyone who wants to join this glamorous event to book soonest.”
