The passionate sailor Peter Reinmann extended his lead acid energy storage of his 9.30 meter long sailing catamaran with two BOS LiFePO4 Lithium modules. Peter is thus able to operate all the on-board electronics such as navigation, radio, light, refrigerator and gas heating. Because there was no room under the bench seat for a larger supply battery, a LE300 hybrid system was the perfect solution without loosing too much space. Now he is able to enjoy longer trips on the water without returning for recharge. A freedom that he no longer wants to miss.
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.

Smart Energy Storage Systems
Making the world and people’s lives a bit better is what drives us and what we do every day with our projects. Get to know many more of our projects in countries all over the world with different climates, cultures and people.
The remote island of Kenti is a hub of fisheries export. The only available power access on the island was from a diesel genset. Since diesel runs for four hours per day, cold storing was almost impossible. In 2017 after a World Bank investment, a solar-diesel mini grid was built. However, power capacity was soon not enough. So, BOS AG supplemented the lead-acid mini grid with BOS lithium storage systems into a hybrid solution. Today, with its extended capacity and a whole optimized system, the diesel generator is used only as a bad-weather backup and 340 households are supplied with electricity around the clock.
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.
