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.

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 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.
