Electricity storage equipment supplier Eos Energy Storage is expanding its partnership with Nigerian clean energy mini grid supplier Nayo Tropical Technology. The two companies will work together to provide electricity to businesses and households in West Africa.
Electricity storage is a key element in the deployment of renewable energy mini-grids. That is why Nayo Tropical Technology intends to rely more on its partner with Eos Energy Storage for the implementation of its mini green grid projects in West Africa. The two companies have decided to strengthen their partnership. Based in Edison (New Jersey, USA), Eos Energy Storage manufactures electricity storage systems using zinc batteries.
“We are proud to extend our partnership with Nayo after a follow-up in the first quarter of 2020, and look forward to meeting the energy needs of additional communities in the future with Nayo as our partner”, says Balki G. Iyer, Eos Energy Storage’s Commercial Director.
In West Africa and particularly Nigeria, Nayo Tropical Technology is executing engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts for green mini-grids for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and rural households. The Abuja-based company plans to rely on its partner with Eos Energy Storage to carry out its new projects, including the construction of four mini-grids with electricity storage systems in the first quarter of 2021.
As part of this project, the Nigerian company will install Eos Energy Storage’s 125 kW/500 kWh Aurora EnergyBlock™ systems. In total, the off-grid solar system provider will build 25 mini-solar grids in West Africa. Eos Energy Storage will build on these projects to spread its electricity storage solutions in West Africa.
