Indonesia produced 42 mil metric ton of palm oil, the largest in the world. Nature is paying heavier price for this inexpensive vegetable fat, tropical forests in the region are being cleared for new palm oil plantations. This is destroying the natural habitat of orangutans and many other species. Babies of orangutans as pets are a status symbol in the region, for which the mothers are killed, and babies are snatched from them. In many other cases, while escaping, these mammals die from falling from the tall trees. In cases where they survive, the babies die a cruel death every day in captivity!
Refugee tents with power
Uganda is the third-largest refugee-hosting country in Africa. Basic needs such as water, food, and electricity are hard to tackle in these camps. 70% of the refugees depend on organizations like the World Food Programme (WFP). To support the WFP, we equipped tents from Hallgruppen with our turnkey BOS solar storage solution. For the installation, we partnered up with the local electricity partner AptechAfrica and provided training on our systems.
Now WFP can store food and supplies safely and have access to reliable and clean energy. The remote monitoring system helps to control the energy and system performance from anywhere in the world. Therefore the system can be monitored from everywhere in the world, which makes servicing easy and efficient.
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.
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.
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.
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.
