African emerging economies are currently facing major challenges in reaching their set development goals. It is widely accepted that for a country to reach its sustainable social, economic and development goals, access to a reliable source of energy is crucial especially in rural areas. Made of world-class components, our solutions are designed and manufactured near our headquarters in South Africa, at the heart of the regional logistics hub. As equipment providers for project developers, this ideal position at the gateway for trade into Africa allows ultra-rapid activation for our clients' remote and demanding locations. Our product range consists of containerised solutions using solar power with or without battery storage. We also incorporate other technologies including water pumps, water treatment and refrigeration, thus offering multipurpose off-grid solutions for permanent rural electrification or temporary and mobile installations.
