Electrifying Health Posts

Health care in rural African regions is a big challenge. The focus in this project was on clinics which are off-grid, very remote and take care of many communities.
People depend on the health posts and often have to walk many miles to get medical help. No power affected Lukolongo as well as Chisakila, Mbimbe and Munyeo in Zambia. With BOS Hybrid Systems all four health posts and the doctor housing get power for lights, fans and the ability to store medicines and vaccinations in a refrigerator. With electrification, a first important step was set for quality medical care and to support the communities.

Electrifying Mountain Huts

Norway is known for its natural wonders such as fjords, mountains and northern lights. If you go on a tour in the nature you often spend the night in one of the numerous huts and experience the beautiful nature far away from civilization. But especially for the hut owners this also means away from any electricity connection. After the Grimsdalshytta built a new winter drying room, the owner decided on a solar system that has to work in winter. Therefore, they decided to install our HS500 hybrid storage system. Due to the very short sun duration the solar panels were installed very steeply and with large surface and by a special cold insulation for the HS system, it resists also in the winter problem-free. Local electricians have been trained in the technology so that maintenance and repairs can be carried out quickly.
From now on the new drying room will be supplied with light in winter and guests can recharge their mobile phones and cameras to be prepared for the breath taking nature.

Sabon Gari Market

Sabon Gari market has been often in the headlines because of big fires, that destroyed large parts of the market. The root cause was the usage of many diesel generators. The Nigerian government and various companies have jointly come up with a solution. Equipped with the BOS Systems all 12,000 shops receive green, stable and affordable power for lamps, fans, television, computer and mobile phones. More markets have followed.

Katate Health Center

The existing health station of Kanungu was in a very poor condition. Simple birth complications, fractures, and infectious diseases often led to death. A state-private initiative turned it into a fully functioning
hospital. Thanks to our energy storage systems, all necessary loads can be handled, especially for operations like autoclave, vacuum pumps, electrosurgical
cutters, anesthesia equipment, and surgical lights. For secure energy supply, BOS energy systems combine electricity
from solar energy, the main power grid, and a diesel generator. This project shows that even in remote areas a very
high medical level is possible.

Iponri Market

The target is to electrify twelve markets by 2019 equipped with BOS Systems. As part of this project, 450 stores in the Iponri market in Lagos now benefit from a renewable and stable power supply. Businesses are mainly souvenir shops, electronic products, tailoring, financial and printing services. With remote monitoring functions, all important system information and energy consumption can be read. PAYG makes it possible for
customers to book their current
contracts in advance on there mobile phone or in the service center. The prices for the shop owner are well below the costs of the old diesel generators.
