Accra, Ghana: On 9th December 2020
Rigworld Group has announced a partnership with the SulNOx Group to develop and market the SulNOx Fuel Conditioner across Africa. The SulNOx Fuel Conditioner is one of the world’s leading proprietary fuel conditioner technologies. Rigworld and SulNOx will be working closely together to service the growing frontier markets in Africa.
The SulNOx Emulsifier is a proven product, which achieves three things – reduction in toxic emissions, fuel savings, and reduction in maintenance costs. By reducing viscosity of crude oil, this SulNOx emulsifier will enable oil to flow through pipelines at lower temperatures thereby saving the industry millions in operating costs.
Commenting on the deal, Rigworld CEO, Kofi Abban said, “This venture will be a major step in reducing toxic emissions and help improve the health of our planet. Rigworld would like to take this opportunity to enhance its environmental credentials and help Africans become part of the green revolution”.
Africa’s frontier markets are growing and developing rapidly. With this growth comes major infrastructure development which is driving an increase in the use of heavy equipment and machinery, all of which depend on diesel fuel.
The mining industry, which is growing rapidly across Africa, particularly in Ghana the leading gold producer on the continent, utilises a large number of diesel-powered heavy equipment, including excavators, drilling machines, trucks and generators. Trials in the United Kingdom have demonstrated significant cost savings which would be of great interest to all the participants in this industry.
Other target markets include trains which run on diesel and shipping vessels which run on marine diesel as well as heavy fuel oil.
