Our sustainability story
Our sustainability story is largely supported by our people, ambition, and sustainable practices. Without them, our loyal customers and supportive local communities we would not be who we are today.
“Our story begins in 2011, as we conceptualized and designed our first plant which was commissioned in 2015, we realised that one of the keys to the success of the project was ensuring that our stakeholders; workers and local residents, were supported throughout the course of the project. As the ﬁrst large scale energy plant construction project in the Lekki area, it garnered a great deal of attention from the community. The project was a huge success, not because of our project management skills but because we continuously focused on a wide range of initiatives to providing efficient service to residents with our principal aim of realizing sustainable development in the area. We began to fully understand the impact of the power plant - from promoting jobs and opportunities to fostering social and economic development in the area and in other disadvantaged areas that had no access to electricity”.
Viathan started with one major goal in mind - to provide power to those who need it the most and we are dedicated to this cause across the country. Our CSR initiatives and programs serve as the support system behind how Viathan operates, especially our commitment to a sustainable energy future which is one of our core values.
Our Power Africa Initiative
We are committed to ensuring everyone has access to aﬀordable, reliable modern energy - especially the most vulnerable.
At Viathan we understand that this includes investing in infrastructure and upgrading technology to provide reliable, clean energy to promote socio-economic development and reduce poverty.
We are determined to tackle energy poverty in Nigeria by developing initiatives with local government areas, host communities and civil societies.
Over the past 8 years we have done the following:
100km of public street lighting projects around strategic districts, which serves to signiﬁcantly reduce the incidence of crime, increase security and boost value of the night economy and tourism (Include stories/Images of streetlights/areas that have light powered by Viathan)
The youth are our priority

By identifying real needs and through long term partnerships we seek to ﬁnd eﬀective impactful, and sustainable solutions to educate the youths by investing in students from disadvantaged and underserved communities. By focusing on STEM we hope to play a small part in Nigeria’s role in technology and innovation in the future.
