Nigerian Man With No Tertiary Education Invents Water-Powered Generator

Felicia Udeji Reporting

Anambra State, Nigeria

A 26-year-old Nigerian man, Emeka Nelson, from Awka Anambra State has invented a generator that is powered by water.

Nelson invented the water-powered generator despite lacking formal education or engineering certification.

The young innovator shared the good news during an interview video with BBC Africa last year.

The generator has a maximum capacity of 1,000 Watts and a voltage ranging between 220 and 240. With a litre of clean water, the generator can supply energy for six hours.

It also has the potential to challenge conventional power-generating methods in Nigeria.

He disclosed that the generator has powered his two-bedroom apartment in Awka, Anambra State.

He also added that he worked on the project for 16 years. Nelson said his invention is environmentally friendly and also addresses safety concerns associated with traditional gasoline generators.

Speaking about the passion behind the invention, he said he lost a friend at the age of 12 as a result of a generator fumes incident.

Nelson has also invented a machine that converts waste into petrol and diesel, as well as into tiles and roofing sheets.

This invention will be well welcomed in the Nigerian market especially with the high price of petrol.

The big question is what plans are the government putting in place to ensure mass production of this remarkable invention?
