Phaesun Off-Grid News - October 2015

Solar water pumping system for mission in Zimbabwe
In September 2015, a solar water pumping system could be completed at the mission station Mary Mount in Mashonaland in Zimbabwe. The Jesuit mission has been supporting the neighbouring municipality with workshops and agricultural activities since 1946. Since the diesel operated water pumping system had to be replaced after decades of use, the Jesuit order decided in favour of a sustained solar water pumping system. The capital investment was mainly covered by donations from Germany. The planning and installation of the system was carried out on the basis of a close collaboration between the committed German-Zimbabwean mission team, the Phaesun engineers and the Zimbabwean partner company Samansco. The installation task was tackled by both members of the mission station and members of the municipality who were thus able to acquire some knowledge of solar technology. The pumping system was put into operation simultaneously with the start of the dry season and can thus support the cultivation of peanuts and the subsequent processing to peanut butter.

Decentralisation: Phaesun gets closer to its partners
Phaesun increasingly focusses on a strategy of decentralisation and the support of local partners. With six subsidiaries and representative offices worldwide, Phaesun is already strongly represented in Europe and the target regions of Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. Phaesun now uses this network to offer its partners in the project countries a better support for the execution of projects and the distribution of components. Within a narrow time frame to the Off-Grid Experts Workshop, Phaesun invited the closest distribution partners to a strategic Gold Partner Plenum and tailormade technical trainings to Memmingen. Further training courses and the development of joint marketing activities are being prepared. Due to the close cooperation with local partners, Phaesun improves the quality of its distribution network while ensuring the support for end customers and solar system users at the same time.

Visitors were offered an exciting weekend programme: Apart from authentical travel reports and survival trainings, they were able to test the latest equipment for a stay in the wilderness. In beautiful sunshine, Phaesun demonstrated how solar power supply works when you are on your way! Smallest applications for the charging of USB consumers such as mobile phones for your trekking trip, or Complete Kits for the power supply of outdoor mobile homes off the paved roads attracted great interest.
