Flexenclosure to supply hybrid power systems to IHS Towers
Flexenclosure, a designer and manufacturer of prefabricated data centre buildings and intelligent power management systems for the ICT industry, has received an order to supply 1,000 eSite power systems for IHS Towers’ sites in Abuja .
The order is a part of IHS’s significantly larger green energy programme.
This agreement is the largest eSite deal in Flexenclosure’s history. It will make Nigeria’s mobile network markedly more sustainable as IHS’ tower sites will be powered by new renewable energy solutions, which rely heavily on solar energy.
Flexenclosure will manufacture the eSite power systems in Sweden for IHS in Nigeria.
IHS is the largest mobile telecommunications infrastructure provider in Africa, Europe and the Middle East and with this eSite deployment IHS is effectively pioneering the first large-scale deployment of solar powered towers in West Africa.
Through mobile infrastructure, IHS is accelerating a mobile enabled economy across sub-Saharan Africa. IHS invests heavily in projects that improve energy efficiency to reduce the environmental impact of its operations and decrease its diesel consumption across its portfolio.
eSite manufacturing is on-going in Sweden and over 100 eSites are already fully up and running in Nigeria. Nigeria is the biggest telecommunication market and the second largest tower market in Africa.
