Namibian High Commission in Botswana 50Kw 3-Phase Solar Powered System

The Namibian High Commission in Botswana recently acquired a Primary Solar secondary utility power energy system with battery back-up to supply their offices.

The Solar System designed and installed for the Namibian High Commission in Botswana was developed to supply primary 50Kw 3-Phase renewable power to adequately supply their offices power requirements. If their offices consume all the alternative energy generated power, the system will automatically switch over to grid utility mains power.

The battery installation designed and installed will accommodate for unforeseen power outages making the solar driven system also act as a automated back-up system supplying power when utility power is unavailable. Specialized Solar Systems was tasked with the design and installation of this solar energy system.

The 50Kw 3-Phase Solar Powered system comprises of the following components:

  • 10 800Watt Array of Solar Modules
  • Flooded Deep Cycle Millennium Solar 2V Battery Bank in Crates
  • 15Kw 3-Phase Inverter/Chargers
  • 210Amp Maximum Power Point Tracking capability
  • Victron Blue Power Color Control Interface
  • Battery Monitoring System

This Alternative Energy project took little over a week to complete with on-site technical renewable energy installation training also being conducted for Specialized Solar Systems Botswana division.

Oudtshoorn 15KWH installation

This off-grid solar system with backup generator and grid-support, produces 5kw-15kw electrical output and was recently installed in Oudtshoorn, South Africa.


The installation components consisted of 24 x 2V deep cycle cells, 1 x 5KW 48V Victron inverter charger, 100 amp MPPT and battery monitor.


The roof contains 15 large solar panels with a rail mount bracket system. This rail mount system uses minimal screws to the roof and can be installed on tiles or corrugated iron. The rails use a clamp method to fasten the panels onto the roof.


The system has a cross over 3 pole switch to enable the client to change from Eskom back up to Generator back up in the event of emergencies.

PS4000 Borehole Solar Pump Matjiesfontein South Africa

This off-grid water pumping unit was built with ground mount frames that contain 21 x 300w solar panels to supply energy to a PS4000 borehole pump.

The solar driven borehole pump supplies 15 cubic meters of borehole water per hour for powering 10 water sprinklers in a nearby vegetable field. The project took only 2 days to install and commission.

Development of Renewable Energy Market Structures for African Countries

Transfers of Skills & Establishment Program for the Development of Renewable Energy Market Structures for African Countries

MARKET ESTABLISHMENT AND RETAIL OUTLETS

AFRICAN-SKILLS

 

1. The Renewable Energy African market comprises of the  following divisions:

DC Micro-Grid  Technology - LSM 1- 4 Markets with:

    • Rural electrification
    • Off-grid urban electrification

These two markets function with a central utility using the implementation as a social/economic driver. Different models exist in the world where Specialized Solar Systems (SSS) is known to be a leader in this field. These models are at present being implemented for global access to these areas.

 

The following models can be discussed:

    • Rural South African(SA)Department of Energy
    • Sustainability Institute of Stellenbosch
    • EDF
    • BPC Lesedi
    • The Gates Foundation

Documents that are available for reference:

    • Energy Made Simple
    • A High-Tech Giant Awakening
    • Rural Electrification and Implementation Plan,firstly South Africa,  then the rest of Africa
