Aptech Africa recently commissioned a containerized 5 KW PV system, complete with energy storage for security in South Sudan.
This system uses Victron hardware with Soleil Power batteries and panels to provide a reliable source of electricity to make sure Securiport’s system is always up and running. In places like South Sudan where the electrification rate is below 3%, off-grid solutions are needed to provide electricity to where the grid has not yet reached. Choosing solar energy as the power source ensures that energy needed to run Securiport’s system is renewable and doesn’t leave a large carbon foot print.
Solar solutions like this one is helping to South Sudan to maintain border control and management, detect threats, and ultimately provide epidemic control.
