ENL Consortium Limited
ENL Consortium Ltd. was founded in Nigeria in 2002 primarily to bring together expertise in utility management as detailed above. The consortiums chairman, Prince C. A. Haastrup had a vision and purpose to expand the activities of ENL to actively embrace the privatization initiatives of the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. To this end he engaged the management team of ENL to pursue the proposed privatization of the Ports Sector, having already successfully been awarded contracts in the Electricity sector.
The process of preparing the Expression of Interests bids as well as the technical and financial proposals took about 18-months and at the public opening of the financial bids, ENL was awarded the concessions for Apapa Terminals C and D. The Consortium out bided its nearest opponent 5 times over. This not only demonstrates that due process was finally emerging in the Nigerian context but also the confidence that the ENL management team had in the potential of the business of running a privately managed ports concession.See more
