I think some companies in cameroon are already running on CNG , what it does is open a new market for VOG , maybe only a couple of scuffs to start with but then again it keeps compeditors at bay and will grow on time , once the set up is in then it is just amatter of watching it grow year in year out , KF is talking about 200KM around Douala , that is a fair area to control , at the end of the day every scuff added to VOG`s targets will be better for us .same as the gensets they will grow over time maybe not that many at the moment but again the ones that are in will keep on taking VOG gas . of course from March should put the cream on the cake with connecting the Power stations .
Voger, you just can't let go, you clearly know nothing about emerging technologies or the customer needs outside Douala. The energy supply problems are even worse outside the city, which is given preference when load shedding, do you even know who Cameroons biggest energy user is or the problems associated with their demands alone?
Cement production is a huge energy consumer but mining and particularly mineral processing is bigger, in fact Cameroon's biggest energy consumer is ALUCAM smelter which is expanding, ALUCAM have existing contracts but they will certainly use some of the power from VOG's gas, their needs have been a major cause of the power outages for years and a 300MW+ Hydro plant is being built, contract just signed with EDF . The point is that there a some very large consumers that experience supply problems and VOG could supply with CNG, you do not know who they are talking to.
WRT CNG vehicles, take a look at the link about Dangote in Nigeria - converting vehicles to CNG and in June 2013 launching their first conversion centre You really need to do your homework before pouring criticism over fair comments.
"...we are here at the first conversion centre. As you have heard, we already signed a conversion deal with Dangote Cement for 5000 trucks. This will save money for the transportation company, according to our estimates, it will save over a 100,000 tonnes of carbon annually that would have been emitted into the atmosphere and help the transportation department to save more than 40% of their fuel cost.
It is not only for Dangote; it's also for the general public. We are already talking to the Road Transport Union and most of their transporters have indicated interest to sign with us. We came with a scheme to make it easier for commercial vehicle owners to afford kits and even have an opportunity to recover their cost in the very shortest time and we have done it also in an optional way where you may not put four cylinders, you may put 1, 2 or 3 depending on your catchment areas, depending on the area you operate, that is the cost could be lower depending on your need but It does not matter how much you have put in we ensure that if you are using a commercial vehicle you get a pay back in less than 7 to 8 months guarantee depending on your usage.
It is also good for non-commercial vehicles but we believe we cannot take everything for now so we are going to take it in phases. The first phase is commercial vehicles, the second will be buses, small commuter vehicles while the next would be private vehicles and as we are doing that we are also going to be opening mother and daughter stations which means the main compression centres are called the mother stations while the filling centres are the daughter stations. Today, already for the first phase we have budgeted €30 million which is about $50 million."
Totally agree with you Photographer but would add I am also bored of his constant negative and vitriolic posts. We should all ignore this fifth columnist and filter his drivel then perhaps we can get back to meaningful dialogue and analysis. People do not feed the troll!
Is this board about VOG or Voger? There are more posts directed to Voger then any other subject discussed. Question: why? It seems to be that anything Voger says creates a whole day, and more, of pointless discussion on trying to point out he is wrong. Again: why? What does it matter? I chose to filter Voger last week just for a break from his relentless posting on KF and VOGs past (which he is quite correct on), no offence meant Voger but I needed the break from you, but all I see is Vogers name on just about every post from others. Congratulations Voger you are some man for one man in as much as you have got your hooks into so many lives that your apparent obsession for KF pales into insignificance compared to how this board is obsessed by you!! No doubt if you respond I will see it as I have to log in before you are filtered. As mentioned, no offence to the filter but I just need you out of my house for a while. That hasn't worked though as so many others still love you.....
Vogers getting brave this morning , only because he has the negative brigade on hand . Not the "one post and run " this morning .You have been proved wrong on CNG and all else , Voger we don't need your advice , we don't need to know why you sold , we do know that your not very good at this sort of thing and that you already admitted to losing a large amount of money . We do know that you do not appear to post on what you claim to be invested in . Is it really the case that you are cleaned out and just a bitter and twisted has been . More than likely .
Into my 7th year stuck in this hole i have made for myself following the dream that hasnt materialised. Its taken its toll on some and they have fled with mahoosive losses i am made of sterner stuff. Still i am many thousands down like all the long termers who are at the end of their tether. I know that i am down and the Johnny Come Lateleys have yet to make some money and i think most of them will get bored before too long and try and strike gold elsewhere.
