Solar Rooftop Project Underway in Africa

CNPV Solar Power SA has announced that their 1.1 MWp supply has been selected for the one of the first large-scale rooftop projects in Namibia. Due to intermittent energy supply and high prices, families turn to diesel generators for power. Now, CNPV says its Total photovoltaic systems are helping to make solar PV solutions the primary choice when selecting new and additional power sources. But what to do when you need to mix the technologies?

Enter Donauer from Germany and their D:Hybrid System – an integrated energy management solution that sets standards for a future orientated energy supply concept focused on reducing energy procurement costs and guaranteeing a reliable power supply. namibiabottlingDonauer have recently been awarded the 1 MWp solar PV integration project with on-roof mounting at Namibia’s largest brewery, Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL), and their choice of supplier was CNPV.

“Our techno-commercial model is finely tuned to offer the client bottom line benefits,” said Mr. Benedikt Bohm, “and the credible demonstration of deliverables comes from the ability to provide ‘hands on’ evidence of ‘more for less’. Our continued choice of CNPV is based upon their ability to outstrip all other comparative PV suppliers’ performance on all of the criteria that matter, such as energy yield, efficiency and reliability. The CNPV-250P polycrystalline module totally compliments our requirements and facilitates our ability to push technological boundaries cost competitively, while ensuring that longevity and yields of the fundamental elements are unchallenged.”

CNPV’s COO & CTO, Mr Bypina Veerraju Chaudary, commented on Donauer’s success. “It’s always exciting to be involved in pioneering projects, particularly when they are driven by visionary personnel. Not only have Donauer identified a new opportunity, created a viable solution and justified its acceptance with facts, they continue to expand their international credibility, provide regional solutions and enlarge their geographical footprint when others are contracting. We are totally honoured to participate in their strategy and equally enthusiastic about further developments from both our Companies that will add to the revenues our clients can achieve.”

CNPV says with the introduction of the hybrid solar PV-diesel solution, NBL’s energy consumption costs will be significantly reduced.
