Equatorial Energies Limited
Equatorial Energies Limited is a leading solar energy solutions provider specializing in EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) services. Labour costs account for 10-20% of the overall system costs during solar PV installations. This percentage may rise if any errors or delays occur and if labour is to be outsourced which is the case in most developing regions of Sub Saharan Africa.
Following the great demand for highly skilled labour within the solar market in Sub Saharan Africa, Equatorial Energies responded by training and perfecting a team of technical personnel who are equipped with the necessary skills to efficiently design, install, monitor and maintain solar PV systems of any type ranging from stand alone to complex hybrid systems. This has enabled Equatorial Energies to grow rapidly through their efficiency and specialized co-ordination operation model. This model has empowered them to deliver high quality installations within shorter timelines and at more efficient costs.
In 2016 alone, the Equatorial Energies team has successfully delivered on several projects among them, a DC and Mechanical works subcontract of 945 kW, which currently stands as Kenya’s largest utility scale rooftop solar PV plant.
In future, Equatorial Energies looks to expand its network of skilled experts into the entire East Africa and to serve the greater Sub Saharan African solar market in quality and efficient solar energy solutions and services.
