Continuing their plans to provide a reliable power source for their African operations, telecoms infrastructure company IHS Towers have announced further investment in renewables. IHS Towers Co-Founder and Interim IHS Nigeria CEO Mohamad Darwish told Engineering News Online that the business have been aiming to overcome challenges in the African market around unreliable electricity grids and a high dependence on diesel.
To do this, Mohamad Darwish stated that IHS Towers are deploying solar panels across an increased amount of their Nigerian sites, in a bid to replace existing generators with greener options. They are also pursuing solar farm opportunities in Rwanda, and are in ongoing negotiations with local officials.
Darwish additionally spoke about further initiatives, including the plan to become “almost diesel neutral” over the next two years in Zambia, as well as reducing diesel usage by charging batteries at sites with national grid connections from the potential surplus of solar energy production.
