Powerstove's factory

Frankfurt (Germany) and Abuja (Nigeria), October 2020. GreenTec is happy to report that Powerstove has opened a new production facility in the Kuje district in Abuja. The new facility will have a monthly production capacity of 25,000 units and expand the company’s market reach in Nigeria and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The new factory and increased production capacity will help to establish Powerstove as a leader in clean cookstove production in Sub-Saharan Africa. The company’s innovative cookstoves are capable reaching 1000 degrees in less than three minutes using an innovative IOT system that regulates temperature and airflow. Powered by the company’s own smokeless biomass pellets or alternative fuel sources, the stove is an environmentally sustainable and affordable solution that addresses issues of energy access and cost for Africans.

Okey Esse, Powerstove Energy CEO said, “The opening of our new production facility in Kuje is one step towards our goal of leveraging smart technologies to build clean technologies for future generations.”

Xavier Chapel, Head of Company Building at GreenTec Capital Partners said, “Powerstove’s new production facility positions the company to become a market leader in clean cookstove production. The combination of innovation and technology addressing several problems at once make this an impactful and scalable solution.”
