METKA, the strategic business unit of MYTILINEOS S.A, leading international EPC contractor and industrial manufacturing group, is set to boost access to power with the launch of EXERON, a unique and innovative power conversion system that provides reliable power in non-electrified regions and unreliable grid locations.
Speaking during the launch in Lagos, of Special Projects, Rural Electrification Agency (REA), Anita Otubu, Head of Special Project, noted that the sole mission of the agency was to provide access to reliable electric power supply for rural dwellers, and the launch of EXERON in Nigeria is a welcome development as it would contribute significantly to the realization of our objectives.
While explaining how the system works, METKA Project Director Dimitrios Triantafyllopoulos, said: “EXERON intelligently combines various power sources with battery storage to reliably provide base load power. Battery banks are used to store energy for later use at nighttime, for peak Shaving during daytime or to provide resilient energy to the load during grid outages. It is an affordable and efficient solution suitable for a wide range of applications, including residential, industrial, oil & gas, telecoms, defense and security.”
Also speaking, Operations Manager, METKA West Africa, Emmanuel Elegbe said that EXERON is a complete energy management system and that there will be no costs and time needed for integrating parts from various manufacturers, adding that the system comes pre-configured from the factory, allowing for quick and easy installation.
“In addition, the intelligent battery management system is able to extend the life of the storage system up to 30 per cent. And because the system’s modular architecture allows load sharing between modules, the output power remains unaffected in the rare case of failure. Another key advantage of EXERON is that the modular system can easily be scaled up to meet tomorrow’s energy needs; power upgrade takes just a few seconds and no tools are needed.”
He thereafter assured Nigerians that METKA IPS is well positioned to meet the challenges of the rapidly growing hybrid and off grid power market, serving the needs of customers in Nigeria and around the world with affordable and efficient solutions. Off-grid applications represent a quickly growing segment of the global power solutions market, and Nigeria is no exception.
