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.

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 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.
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.
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.
