University gradute, Augustine Ogar, constructs Hydroelectric power plant, generates electricity

Augustine Ogar

Though 200 megawatts in output, it’s a billion megawatts in effort and a trillion megawatts in worth! He’s thinking “without” the box to show up for his community.

32 year-old Augustine Otuokwa Ogar, a graduate of Electronic and Computer Technology, has constructed a 200 Mega Watts mini Hydroelectric power plant that generates electricity for the plant’s site and its surrounding Mgbaeshuo village of Wula Community, Eastern Boki, Boki LGA, Cross River State.

Remarkable and exceptional Augustine Otuokwa Ogar, constructed this Hydroelectric Plant with locally-handpicked materials and equipments, and he intelligently put them together to form this actually wonderful piece.

Augustine OgarHe converts the kinetic energy of a flowing stream water into electric energy that is now used in homes and business areas within this village.

Augustine OgarGenerated on a small scale with ‘run-off’ installation of a naturally flowing stream water to turn and revolve its turbine. The Water rushes past this turbine, hitting its blades and causing it to spin and rotate, converting the water’s kinetic energy into mechanical energy, the water then finally flows out of the stream and continues its journey down stream.

Augustine Ogar“When the turbine spins so does the electromagnetic field convert this mechanical energy into electric energy, the flow rate of the stream water is low, because its not a dam or water fall, this is a small stream with low flowing water, yet I was able to convert it to bring pressure and fall like a dam.”, Ogar noted.

Augustine Otuokwa Ogar, needs encouragement, support, total empowerment from Government and spirited Nigerians.

If he can generate power from his locally constructed Hydroelectric power plant then, with empowerment, he can construct a more ingenious energy-generating plant that can serve the entire Local Government and by extension his Senatorial zone.
