For over two decades, PNN has prided itself on being a market leader in the provision of turnkey solutions for the deployment, operations and maintenance of communication and power infrastructure to leading operators in the private and public sectors in Nigeria.
PNN, being a one-stop shop for these solutions, offers solutions that are designed to meet our clients’ current and future needs.
PNN provides turnkey supply and deployment of communications infrastructure that supports our clients’ current needs and their expansion plans. PNN has deployed varied communications solutions using various financial models, which include Build Operate and Transfer (BOT), Build Own and Operate (BOO), as well as simply offering turnkey deployments on a fixed contract term basis.
Our solution offerings include:
BTS Sites Equipment
These include towers, housing & shelters, tower accessories such as antenna mounts, lighting and grounding kits, rack feeders and foundation templates.
We also offer Cell on Wheels (COW), a totally self contained, communications node mounted on a rugged trailer. The COW enables an operator to establish cellular coverage in an area in the minimum amount of time, and to provide service in any location that can be reached by a suitable towing vehicle.
These include microwave, VSAT and fibre optics solutions. PNN provides complete project management, installation and test solutions to support all data infrastructure, which allows our clients to benefit from the advantages of best transmission solution.

PNN offers power and utility support services to communities and institutions to meet their various needs. We provide engineering design, procurement and installation services under the following categories:
Turnkey Consultancy for Power Projects
Taking into consideration environmental and situational factors, we are able to look at the whole spectrum of our clients’ power needs before providing objective advice on the most appropriate technical solutions.
Urban and Rural Electrification Projects
We undertake electrification projects in urban and rural communities, providing power line extensions to newly developed areas or underserved communities. PNN has gained extensive experience in the deployment of 11KV or 33KV transformers and substations from 50KVA to 2.5MVA
Energy Efficiency Lighting Installations
PNN has been in the forefront of custom retrofitting existing lighting infrastructure with the latest energy-efficient products for varied lighting needs.
PNN uses the most technically advanced energy efficient lighting products in the market ensuring all components we install meet global standards.
Most modern street lighting infrastructure now use white light mainly because this helps facial recognition and aids CCTV viewing. The vast majority of residents tell us that white light makes them feel more secure on the streets at night.
Electrical Power Projects
We provide the following services:
- Procurement and installation of high voltage step down transformers, including overhead and underground substations, electrical wirings and fittings to any facility
- Installation of electrical switches, mains distribution panels, circuit controls, feeder pillars, light sockets and outlet boxes
- Installation of lightning protection for buildings, telecoms towers and facilities by earthing
- Power surge protection from mains pollution
- Telecoms and data network surge protection
- Electrical grounding systems
- Installation of smoke detectors and power control system
- Troubleshooting and fault detection in electrical circuits and devices
DC Power Solutions
We have developed a novel power system that allows the user to enjoy:
- Over 70% savings in operational expenses
- 1,500hrs service intervals
- Lower equipment maintenance requirements
At PNN, we are at the forefront of delivering cost-effective products and services that help maintain lower overall energy costs, reduce our nation’s dependence on fossil fuels and diminish our carbon footprint.
Biomass, Wind and Solar Hybrid Community Power Solutions
We build biomass, wind and solar hybrid community power plant networks to serve small communities, large cities and everything in between. Our community power system rides on a smart micro grid power distribution (SMGPD) system where electricity is generated from a scalable mesh of energy sources, close to where it is used.
A critical component of the SMGPD is community energy storage (CES). This consists of small energy storage units connected to the secondary of transformers serving a few houses or small commercial loads. A large number of these small storage units are aggregated regionally and controlled as a fleet.
CES provides energy capacity, efficiency, and reliability. They provide backup power for the houses connected locally, serve as local voltage control, and provide efficient, convenient integration with the other renewable resources.
The objectives of an energy analysis or audit are to identify and develop modifications that will reduce the energy use and/or cost of operating a building. The results are presented in a format that provides the information needed by an owner/operator to decide if any, some, or all of the recommended modifications should be implemented
System Design and Full System Integration
PNN is adept in the design and installation of alternative energy generation that uses natural resources efficiently and effectively. We advise clients on an appropriate design using only the highest quality equipment and also deploy a range of solutions making use of wind, solar and hydro energy systems.
PNN invests in the ownership and operation of community-based communication and power infrastructure that leverage on our extensive in-house experience.
Last Mile Data Infrastructure – WiFi Services
Broadband Internet access across Africa is inadequate and most operators are currently unable to meet expectations.
PNN supports the efforts of major operators with our novel Wi-Fi technology, taking broadband Internet services to targeted communities and campuses at a rate they can afford.
Off Grid Power Infrastructure – Captive Power Services
PNN deploys independent power plants (IPPs) using renewable power, and will generate up to 400MW of power over the next 5 years.
Our solution utilises renewable energy, which in today’s market also attracts a number of global financing models such as the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). CDM estimates the amount of carbon emissions that the project has saved and the project can earn carbon credits for these emissions.
PNN brings strong, diversified experience to the operations and maintenance (O&M) of facilities, systems and equipment, having managed over 1300 BTS sites for various operators as well as over 400km of streetlight infrastructure in Nigeria, Ghana and Uganda.
We understand and appreciate that achieving 100% uptime is the ultimate way to ensure revenue, and we offer the following services as a one-stop service to our clients:
- Mechanical, electrical & civil maintenance services
