SON Begins Certification Of Locally Produced Gas Cylinders
The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has commenced the certification phase of TechnoGas LPG cylinders, a crucial process in the anticipated roll out of cylinders from Nigeria’s flagship indigenous LPG manufacturing plant.
The certification process is part of the Mandatory Conformity Assessment Programme of SON, the high point of processes required for Techno Oil Ltd., to roll out 3kg, 6kg, 12.5kg and 50kg cylinders into Nigerian and West African markets.
The plant is the largest of its type in West Africa and is expected to generate up to 6,000 direct and indirect jobs in the years ahead.
The facility is cited as one of the dividends of the local content initiative of the government, which encourages local companies to take up ventures that will make Nigeria self-reliant.
The conformity assessment is a mandatory product certification by SON to ensure that all locally manufactured products conformed to Nigerian Industrial Standards before such products are presented for sale or for export.
