Phaesun Off-Grid News - September 2016

Water supply for Tekreret in Eritrea
Phaesun successfully built a solar-powered water pumping system to improve water supply in Tekreret in Eritrea. In August 2016, the installation of the system with a PV capacity of 9 kWp was completed, which supplies the village with 100 cubic meters of clean drinking water per day.
The planning, design, supply and installation was performed by Phaesun Asmara. The project was financed by the Bisha Mining Share Company
. It is part of their Social Responsibility programs to support the nearby villages around the mining area, and they financed this pumping project for Tekreret to supply the village with clean drinking water. Images of the water pumping system in Tekreret see on our Facebook page here.

Caravan Salon 2016

The Caravan Salon took place in 2016 for the 55th time. With 203.500 visitors it has reached a new record. In 12 halls exhibited 590 national and international companies - the largest Caravan Salon ever!
The interest in our hall was extremely high and our new, more informative catalog "Solar Technology for Independence" was selling like hot cakes. In addition, we introduced our new, innovative products for example, the foldable 105 Wp module Fly Weight. From the beginning of October there will be a 70 Wp version on the market. We once again found that "solar to go" fully has become a trend.
With our end and merchant customers, we have also celebrated our 15th anniversary with beer and pretzels. Like every year we are very pleased to be a part of the leading trade fair and look forward to welcome you again at our booth next year. Thank you for your visit. Pictures of the event can be found
