About us
We at Gentec share your vision.
Together, we can create your ideal energy solution

Gentec EPC is one of Africa’s leading engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractors – best known for concept-to-commissioning turnkey energy solutions. 

Founded in 1996 as a distributor of industrial products and power generation equipment for the developing world, Gentec shifted focus in 2004 to the full construction of power plants, with specific expertise in natural gas fired power generation in Africa. 

Gentec has long been promoting natural gas as a preferable substitute to conventional liquid fuels such as diesel and HFO throughout the developing world; being cleaner and cheaper than diesel, natural gas offers both financial incentives and environmental benefits. Natural gas emits just 10% of the nitrogen and sulphar emissions of diesel. 

Gentec was an early pioneer in the Nigerian gas to power market and invested heavily in developing it’s EPC capabilities to develop gas fired power plants and CNG & LNG processing facilitates. The first power plants were established in Europe (Belgium and Spain) and subsequently heavily scaled in Sub-Saharan Africa. 

Gentec’s typical EPC scope includes a detailed feasibility study, engineering design for the project, procurement of all plant equipment and materials, construction and installation of equipment to deliver a top quality functioning facility, plant commissioning and safety testing and after sales operations & maintenance support. We cover the whole value chain! 

Gentec has successfully built over 100 energy centers across Africa, Europe and Asia, including gas fired, hydro, solar, biomass and ethanol power plants as well as natural gas compression (CNG) and downloading stations. 

We continue to innovate with disruptive technology changing the energy industry. Gentec has specialist power, gas, project management and O&M divisions with offices in London, Sri City (SEZ outside Chennai), Geneva, Lagos and Nairobi. Projects in Gentec are managed by some of the most experienced professionals in industry, whose strengths lie not only in decades of experience delivering projects around the world, but also in our “out of the box” implementation approach that we bring to the field on a daily basis.
