  1. Together with our company Topec Nigeria (TPN) since 1985 involved with turn key large scale EDG powerplants, for the food and beverage industries in Nigeria and other African countries, we are at this moment busy with calculations and engineering for production 40ft containerized 180kW micro-grid for the rural African communities. It will be based on a 90kW EGD, Li-Ion batteries and a 30kW-p PV set-up.
    Next to this, we are also doing our best to realize to penetrate our customer’s 8 large scale EDG-plants, that we 24/7 maintain, with 500 kW-p PV
    Though the Nigerian Naira is a very fluctuating and difficult currency, we are able to run these projects both financially as technical.
    my credo is ; Batteries is becoming the replacement for Oil&Gas prices
    and: show us your load-profile and we show you savings!
