The solar and battery storage plant in Malakal will reduce the Hub’s diesel consumption by at least 80%. It is run by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
Additionally, the solar PV capacity of 700 kWp and the 1,368 kWH battery energy storage system that are connected to the existing diesel generators will significantly reduce C02 emissions, energy costs and noise emissions as well, improving the living quality of the people at the Hub with 300 workers.
“We are thrilled to have completed this project for IOM and the Humanitarian Hub in Malakal. This is our second hybrid project for a United Nations (UN) organisation in South Sudan, and with a third project to be completed for UNMISS in the next few weeks, we are reinforcing our support of the United Nations in their quest to reduce their use of fossil fuels,” says CEO of Scatec Solar, Raymond Carlsen.
