Orangutan Haven - Solar powered eco-friendly home for the endangered orangutans

The Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP) build an education and rescue park, a sanctuary for injured and endangered orangutans in the middle of the Sumatran Rain Forest – Orangutan Haven (OUH). Together with our partner Alva Energi, we developed an off-grid solution to equip the 48-hectare nature reserve with a sustainable and reliable power supply.

One of the first kind in the world, OUH helps in conserving nature and sustainable development in a unique way!
The park utilises green materials (bamboo, palm leaves, river rocks, timber and earth friendly materials) for its construction and solar power for its energy needs!
Together with our partner Alva Energi, an offgrid system was conceptualised to meet the energy demands of the OUH islands, which includes four Orangutan houses, staff canteen, security post and toilets. Prime obejective being able to supply electricity as soon as possible and modularly expand as the demand grows in future.
In total of 6kWp PV system was installed with 30kWh Lithium battery serving the needs with 2 days of autonomy with possibility of connecting to the main grid once its there.
