A solution to many problems
What began as an endeavour to protect the coastline of Victoria Island from sea erosion became a land reclamation project on a colossal scale, surrounded by a sea wall built to last 1,000 years. On top of this rises a solution to the chronic shortage of prime real estate in Lagos, and the need for a new financial headquarters for Nigeria – the largest economy in Africa.
Eko Atlantic is not only providing vital space for people to live and workjust off Victoria Island. It is a symbol of Nigeria’s pride and pivotal in realising the nation’s pledge to become a top 20 economic power; a beacon for international business and tourism.
Supplying the answers to overwhelming demand
How does Eko Atlantic help?
Its new infrastructure is also giving it the capacity to earn many carbon credits:
- An efficient electricity generation plant will provide an uninterrupted power supply.
- Central service systems will completely eliminate the need for generators, water tanks and septic tanks. This will mean that Eko Atlantic will not be dependent on diesel and will not be troubled by the waste from badly serviced tanks, or from the noise pollution.
- A dedicated sewage treatment plant will keep the city healthy and safe. Clean water will be pumped from the city’s own treatment plants and distribution mains.
- State-of-the-art communications will fuel business and personal networking on a local and global level. Nigeria has one of the fastest-growing telecoms markets in the world with major companies such as MTN, Etisalat, Airtel and Globacom all located in Lagos.
