CRONIMET Mining Power Solutions Namibia and OLC Solar Energy engineered, financed and installed Namibia’s largest photovoltaic and storage system. The 150 kWp photovoltaic system which is combined with an efficient Qinous 332 kWh lithium Ion energy storage system is now operating.
The innovative solar-plus-battery storage system will significantly reduce energy cost and ensure a sustainable operation of Chobe Water Villas, a remote Namibian Lodge. The boutique lodge is owned and operated by O&L Leisure Hotels & Lodges which is in turn part of the Olthaver & List Group. With the completion of the innovative solar-plus-battery storage system, CRONIMET Mining Power Solutions and O&L Leisure underline their role as first movers for green technology within the African hospitality industry. Recent projects at Mokuti Etosha Lodge and Midgard Country Estate, where luxury lodges are powered by solar plants, have created new dynamism in this sector.
CRONIMET is the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) provider and further provides through its JV company OLC Energy Services the Operation and Maintenance (O&M) services to the combined solar and storage facility. OLC Mokuti Solar Energy, a joint venture of O&L Energy and CRONIMET Mining Power Solutions GmbH, operates the plant as the Independent Power Producer (IPP).View More
