For the off-grid power supply of the headquarters of a Mozambican national park (Reserva Nacional do Gilé), a QuattroPower AC24048T was implemented as Microgrid by our local partner SwissSolar. Four guest houses, a restaurant and staff accommodation of the facility are powered by a 3-phase system with up to 24kVA. The three solar generators with a total output of 12.6 kWp together with a 60kWh OPzV lead-acid battery from Hoppecke ensure the power supply. The solar generators were mounted on a wooden structure at a height of approx. 3 m and so serve as a shelter at the same time.

Due to the remoteness of the building complex, there were numerous logistical problems which had to be mastered by Mr. Ziegler from SwissSolar. In addition, a total of 22 buildings or parts of the infrastructure were connected to a microgrid with more than 1000m cable laid.
