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.
Katate Health Center
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.

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 Aptech. 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 Aptrech can monitor the system from everywhere, which makes servicing easy and efficient.

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.
