May 7, 2015 – Canadian owned and operated Enerdynamic Hybrid Technologies Corp. (EHT) has been awarded a contract by IQ TPI Engineering to build 87 micro-utility systems in Senegal, Africa.
The systems will be deployed on the rooftops of existing housing units, which require an independent power source, according to EHT, an energy solutions provider.
“We are pleased to be awarded a firm contract to deploy our micro-utility systems,” said CEO John Gamble. “We are gaining momentum in the acquisition of firm contracts in Africa and expect to continue to build on the success of this contract award. While our growth has been slower than anticipated in the region, due to the need to create a skilled localized labour solution, we have greater transparency for future opportunities.”
Under the terms of the contract, EHT will supply up to 2kW of power for each installation, including battery storage. The end-user will “gain energy independence and be able to access energy 24 hours per day without the requirement to be connected to the local electricity grid,” EHT said.
EHT noted it will be paid on commercial terms with 50% payable on delivery of equipment to Senegal and 50% on the completion of construction. The company said it expects construction to begin in July and be completed in early Q4 2015.
