Social Impact Project for Engineer to Support Design & Manufacturing of Water Tube Boilers


How This Works

In the MovingWorlds Institute Global Fellowship, you will learn how to advance your for-good career while getting hands on experience on projects like this one.

Project Description and Impact

Our organization focuses on renewable energy (solar & biomass) generation, energy management and farm-gate industrial cluster development. Energy poverty is a major challenge in Nigeria. 100million Nigerians have no access to electricity, and about 73% of rural dwellers in Nigeria are not connected to the National grid.

Currently, we have a prototype design for a water tube boiler that shows the specification and dimensions of materials needed. The dimensions will vary, depending on the volume of steam to be generated per hour and the pressure at which the stream will be delivered. 

The energy produced will mainly be used as an off-grid electricity supply to farming communities. Additionally, our boilers will solely be for power generation, the steam exiting our turbine still has a lot of energy. We desire to harvest the steam exiting the turbine and use the energy in it for agricultural or industrial processing.

This project will improve the socioeconomic life of peasant farmers, by helping them:

  • process agricultural produce
  • reduce post-harvest wastage
  • promote food security
  • reduce poverty

Learning Opportunity

By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:

We have very good experience in the manufacture of Toplit Updraft Gasifiers and various hot air dryers. Our steam turbine manufacturing techniques are good too.

Accommodation

You will have housing provided - a large room with exclusive bath and toilet in a five bedroom house. There are two living rooms that are shared.

Living Stipend

We can provide transportation and drinks for social events.

Travel Stipend

This project is part of the empowering people. Expert program with Siemens Stiftung. The selected candidate will have your flights covered along with visa costs and travel insurance. 

Food Stipend

There is a steward to prepare continental or local meals for the Experteer. We can provide two meals daily, but tea and beverages are given as frequently as desired.

Additional Benefits

We can provide sight seeing to important tourist centers during the weekends.

Virtual

This project accepts virtual experteers.
