If rural conditions are hard to explore for grid-dependent industries or communities, they have to use independent energy sources. Most of these sources are expensive and detrimental to the environment, because they use environmentally damaging fuel and quite often need servicing. The meeco Group is able to offer a different solution, especially for such countries with high insolation, such as in Guinea. With its product, the sun2go, they use the clean energy of the sun to provide electricity independent of the grid.
On Monday, the 27th January 2011, Dieter Trutschler (meeco AG, member of the Board of Directors), Juan Carlos Sepulcre (CEO Guineval Consultores SL) and Norberto Echuaca (GExpress) signed a commercial agreement about the dispersal of the sun2go portable energy source. “Our new partners will be responsible for the distribution and maintenance of sun2go. The necessary material, as well as sales training for the sales agents, will be provided by meeco”, Dieter Trutschler explains the content of the contract.
About the new partners:
Guineval Consultores SL is located in Alicante, Spain. GExpress is their correspondent in Malabo-Guinea Ecuatorial which will be in charge of the distribution and maintenance of the sun2go. They were looking for European partners for the Guinean market which could be a platform for the Guinean Golf market. Now, with the help of The meeco Group, they are able to penetrate this growing market.
sun2go is a photovoltaic(PV)-based portable power supply comprised of a collapsible PV module and a wheeled trolley containing a battery, inverter, and charge controller. During daylight hours, the battery can be charged by PV modules. The inverter and charge controller then deliver either AC or DC power to electrical devices. At night, the energy stored in the battery can power appropriate electrical devices.
