Phaesun Middle East: Subsidiary opens in Dubai
After the set up of a decentralized sales office in West Africa in 2014, Phaesun is now announcing the opening of Phaesun Middle East (PNME), a fully owned subsidiary based in Dubai/United Arab Emirates. With the foundation of the new subsidiary, the Phaesun-group extends its Off-Grid activities in the MENA-region. After having realised many successful projects in this region, Phaesun now extends its distribution network for components such as solar modules, electronics and batteries with this subsidiary.
In addition to the United Arab Emirates and their neighbouring countries, the subsidiary in Dubai can also supply Northern Africa. Francis Hillman, one of the founder members of Phaesun GmbH has been appointed Managing Director. He reports. "The new subsidiary enables us to get in closer contact with our customers. The use of renewable energies has increasingly been focussed on also in the MENA-region, both with private households and industrial projects.” Francis Hillman has been working for decades in Africa and the Middle East in the Off-Grid field with PV and is now looking forward to his new task together with Phaesun.

Off-Grid Connect System in Gabon
In case of power failures, or in case of too high diesel generator operation, the Off-Grid Connect (OGC) systems power up, ensuring that important electrical loads are operated without interruption. OGC is a system designed to make users step-by-step independent from the grid or diesel generators. In 2013, Phaesun, in collaboration with Projets Sans Frontières (PSF) has completed an Off-Grid Connect system with a 26 kWp solar generator for a villa in La Pointe Denis, Gabon. This system has been upgraded in 2015 to a 38 kWp system. It is now supplying household appliances, lighting and security system, enabling the private individual to live at least partly independent from the diesel generator in the island of Pointe Denis off the coast of Libreville. See the pics of the system on our Facebook page

Phaesun-shipment reaches Eritrean villages
"The village community of the Northern Eritrean municipal of Qnafna is celebrating the arrival of the solar equipment with an exuberant party”. This is how the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) describes what happened when the components for PV systems for more than 300 families in Eritrean villages were delivered. Phaesun won the bid for the delivery in 2014, now the systems have reached the villages in the remote regions of Eritrea which hitherto had no access to electricity. The installation of the systems is supposed to be completed by the end of this year. These emotional moments are described in a picturesque report on the UNDP website. Please find this report here.
