Eos Energy Storage Expands Battery Deployments in Nigeria
Nayo Tropical Technology Ltd. to receive zinc battery systems at four sites
EDISON, NJ - OCTOBER 5, 2020 - Eos Energy Storage LLC (“Eos”), the leading manufacturer of safe, low-cost and long-duration zinc battery storage systems, today announced an expansion of its partnership with Nayo Tropical Technology Ltd. (“Nayo”), a leading West African mini-grid engineering, procurement, and construction (“EPC”) company. Eos will deploy additional units of its signature Znyth™ systems, rated at 125kW/500kWh, to four rural microgrid projects in Nigeria in the first quarter of 2021.
In July, Eos announced it had entered into an agreement with Nayo to bring safe, environmentally friendly, low-maintenance, easy-to-deploy energy storage to the African market for the use of residents and local businesses in rural locations. This new contract expands on the success of that program by combining solar photovoltaic generation and energy storage to provide reliable electricity to homes and businesses in remote Nigerian communities, in addition to reducing dependence on diesel generators.
