Energy Vision, a telecom-focused energy service company in Africa, has purchased eSite Power Systems’ eSite x10 – the world’s first power system purpose-built for outdoor telecom sites – for a rollout at new sites in Nigeria and Gabon.
This is the third time eSite Power Systems and Energy Vision have worked together after earlier projects in Gabon and Burkina Faso.
eSite Power Systems is a Sweden-based technology company specialising in telecom site power management systems. The company was recently spun out from Flexenclosure – which was going through financial difficulties.
Energy Vision is expanding its African operations into Nigeria and will be deploying eSite x10’s across the country. It will deploy additional eSite x10s in Gabon. Manufacturing of the eSites is ongoing in Sweden with shipments to Nigeria and Gabon planned before the end of the month.
“We aim to lead the telecom ESCO market in Africa, deploying the most innovative and technologically advanced infrastructure in order to offer our customers the highest possible power availability and SLAs at the lowest possible total cost of ownership,” said Ofer Ahiraz, CEO of Energy Vision.
eSite x10 is the world’s first power system purpose-built for outdoor telecom sites and to outdoor telecom standards. eSites will provide stable power at cell sites where the electricity grid supply is unreliable or unavailable.
Energy Vision will be using eSite Tools, eSite’s built-in remote management system, to monitor, control and accurately report back to Energy Vision’s in-country 24×7 Network Operations Centres on each site power system’s KPIs.
Mattias Karlsson, CEO of eSite Power Systems, said: “Energy as a Service demands the highest levels of performance and reliability from telecom site power systems. Our eSite x10 offers the lowest total cost of ownership in the toughest operational conditions and is the perfect ESCO solution.”
