Leading global vendor of digital power products and solutions,  Huawei , has now unveiled its range of smart solar products to power industries, businesses and residential homes in Kano, Nigeria in its nationwide product launch.

At the launch of the smart solar products called FusionSolar, on Thursday, May 9, 2024 in Kano, the Director of Huawei Digital Power Nigeria, Mr Ni Zhilin, stated that renewable energy is the sustainable and smart energy choice for Nigeria, and “is becoming a major source of energy across the world.

Zhilin, who noted that Nigeria remains the largest generator importer, explained that with the recent increase in electricity tariff, and price of diesel jumping from N280 per litre in 2022 to N1300 in 2024, it has become necessary for Nigerians to embrace solar energy solution as the current approach is not sustainable.

Furthering the discourse, the Chairman of the Manufacturing Association of Nigeria (MAN), Bompai/Jigawa Branch, Mr Mohammed Bello Umar, bemoaned the impact of the energy challenges and its associated effect on manufacturing in Nigeria.

The Chairman lamented that as energy price rises or becomes unpredictable, the manufacturing process also becomes more expensive, consequently raising the price of finished products in the market.

He added that operational disruption, supply chain disruption due to energy shortage in certain regions leading to unavailability of raw materials, reduced market competition, and low investment and business expansion, are other negative consequences of energy challenges to the manufacturing industry.

“To address these challenges, it requires a combination of strategies, including investing in energy efficient technologies, diversifying energy sources, optimizing energy supply chains for reliability and advocating for supportive energy policies”, he asserted.

Speaking on MAN’s efforts to achieving sustainable energy through cost-effective smart technologies solutions, the acting Managing Director of Manufacturers Power Development Co. Ltd, Mr Oweh Mba-Sam, stated that MAN partnered with Huawei for smart solar solutions to help navigate energy challenges. Mr Mba-Sam disclosed that the decision to partner with Huawei is hinged on the fact that the company is the world’s largest PV inverters and battery storage systems exporter and “they guarantee efficient delivery, cost and energy saving solutions. Huawei is a reliable brand with seamless sales and installation that are ready for use, and they have capable and credible project development partners with O and M services that helps reassure customers.”

In addition, the Solution Manager, Huawei Digital Power Nigeria, Mr. Jeremiah Ejiroghene Aminode, disclosed that Huawei was already powering over 2.7 million homes across the world with its smart solar products.

Aminode stated that the Huawei smart inverters and batteries have 5-10years warranty with the capacity as high as 2MWh for industrial and commercial use, and as low as 5KWh for residential homes.

Speaking on the benefits of Huawei solar products, he said “it is extremely safe and reliable, easy and quick to install, aesthetically pleasing, and has 24/7 after sales assurance.”

As part of the effort to ensure excellent delivery and installation of its products, Huawei helps installers quickly build capabilities and continuously grow. It achieves this by providing on-site technical training at partners offices, on-site installation training of physical equipment, a 24/7 social media installer channel for online learning at any time, online and real-time technical support, and a free OEM Certified Installer Certification after passing the required exam.

Apart from this, Huawei is also the first and only brand to offer incentive for all certified installer sales in Nigeria.

Revealing the company’s Full Series Solutions for commercial and industry, Nick Lusson, The Vice President of Huawei Digital Power Southern Africa, noted the Huawei Power-S, and described it as an all-in-one modular power backup solution.

This intelligent unit can switch between the grid, solar energy, batteries, or even a diesel generator in less than 10 milliseconds for a seamless experience with no sense of a power outage.” He said.

The modular design supports hot swap which means maintenance and troubleshooting has never been easier. With this, it is possible to experience almost no downtime as faulty units are isolated and can be removed and swapped without turning off the rest of the system. The technology’s minimum fuel consumption point also allows users to consume less diesel than ever before.

Speaking further on the features of the Power-S, Lusson stated that the unit has cables pre-integrated and units are plug and play, saving 80% of installation time. Likewise, Huawei has a unique battery optimizer technology which allows users to mix new and old batteries without sacrificing performance and redesigning the whole system. This means that more capacity can be added as a user’s needs grow in the future.

Huawei Smart PV has supported a number of notable projects such as the Abuja Steel PV plant by Paras Energy - the largest Solar Farm in Nigeria supplying green power to Steel Industry; as well as the World's Largest Micro-grid BESS Project in the Red Sea, Saudi Arabia. The grid has a capacity of 400MW PV + 1300MWh BESS and is 100% powered by Renewable Energy.

Huawei is committed to bringing digital to every person, home and organization for an intelligent world through its smart solutions.
