Diverse Energy, an energy and telecommunications equipment manufacturer, announced the outcome of a five-month PowerCube technology, during an event on Monday in Namibia’s capital Windhoek.
PowerCube is a fuel cell-based off-grid electrical power generating resolution for back-up and prime power which uses ammonia as its only fuel. Far from other power solutions that are ‘back-up’ only or rely on variable wind and solar combinations, the PowerCube is easy to set-up and provides a clean, secure and reliable 24/7 electricity supply.
It also offers an 80 percent CO2 reduction and a 25 percent reduction in total cost of ownership with a 2-year return on investment supply.
It is specifically structured to switch the norm of using costly inefficient, greenhouse gas-emitting, diesel generators to that of an environmentally friendly one.
The project had Namibian telecommunications industry MTC and LEO making its way towards green transformation after they substituted their diesel generators to try out the PowerCube innovation.
The trial had four power cubes installed at different sites in and around Windhoek for a period of over three months where the cubes were subjected to Namibia’s extreme climate, geography and unstable power along with its logistical demands, the mobile telephone and radio equipment being supported were owned and maintained by MTC and LEO.
Namibia and other countries with-in the African continent use the device to power remote, rural cellular-base transceiver stations (BTS), where there is no access to grid power.
CEO of Diverse Energy, Dirk Smet, said the field experiment showed beyond reasonable doubt that PowerCube is not only economic and environmentally friendly, but also effective with performance in tough demanding real-world applications.
PowerCube is an Indian company engaged in design, development, manufacture and supply of power generating Products.
Diverse Energy is an energy and telecommunications company launched in 2007 by a team of energy and telecommunication professionals. It is privately owned and based in the United Kingdom.
