Presentation Lagazel

Lagazel has developed a range of solar lamps manufactured in Burkina Faso. The aim of the company is to create jobs locally and to illuminate remote rural areas with quality and environmentally friendly lamps. We have recently added the LK1500 and LK3000 lamps to our product line. The LK1500 is only used for lighting, while the LK3000 can also charge mobile phones. The lighting intensity of the lamps can be changed and they are supplied with solar panels.
More information about the products and this innovative project can be found here.

EU project REvivED is making progress

Electrodialysis can be added as a pre-desalination step to the existing reverse osmosis system. This improves the system performance: from the same amount of sea water more drinking water will be produced. The first system is currently under construction and will be tested in Somaliland from May. Further information can be found in the latest REvivED press release.

INFO: Extended delivery time for Exide batteries

Exide Sonnenschein Solar and Sonnenschein Solar Block (from the factory in Bündingen) have an extended delivery time of more than 15 weeks. We hope that the situation will be improved soon.

Review: Austria Boatshow in Tulln from 01.03 to 04.03.2018

The Austria Boatshow is a small but very nice nautical fair in Austria, just outside Vienna. About 42,000 visitors for 380 exhibitors from 20 countries, we were present with our partner, Ramminwerft from the city of Barth. The water sports sector is also very active right now. Despite Arctic temperatures, a large part of the public was interested in our booth. A very successful show, we are looking forward to participate again in 2019 (from 07.03 to 10.03.2019)

The new Active Power Battery supports you in all your projects. The advantage of this new gel battery is its high cycle resistance. The IntAct Active-Power GEL manages 500 cycles. The battery is completely sealed. In normal use, there is no gas formation. Since no additional ventilation is required, the batteries can be installed anywhere. They are ideal as a service battery and for cyclic applications. In addition, they can be recharged very quickly.
