Given the high cost of electrical energy and diesel for supplying its telephone aerials, one of the continent’s main mobile phone operators, decided to study the possibility of introducing alternative solutions (solar energy) in order to guarantee the service, improving the operating costs of all its facilities. Compass was commissioned to find a supplier with state of the technology to incorporate solar energy as a solution for the supply of numerous telephone aerials in Nigeria. The installation of solar energy on a pilot aerial is currently being carried out in order to prove its viability and test the cost of savings, in order to implement the solution on all the aerials in the country once the project is approved.
