DONAUER Solartechnik Exhibits at bauma Africa 2013

GILCHING, Germany - Donauer Solartechnik, Germany, one of Europe's largest photovoltaic system providers, will be exhibiting at bauma Africa (18-21 September 2013) in Johannesburg, South Africa ( A specialist and pioneer in the integration of photovoltaic systems into pre-existing diesel networks, Donauer's D:Hybrid Energy Management sets the benchmark for advanced models in power supply engineering.

Both domestically and abroad, Donauer is working on projects whose rated output ranges from small hybrid systems starting at 100 kvA through to major industrial plant for over 17 years. In all cases, the focus is oriented on reducing operating costs while guaranteeing a reliable supply of energy.

Only in July, Donauer received the order from Namibia Breweries Limited (NBL) - Namibia's largest brewery - to install a hybrid own consumption industrial photovoltaic system. When the brewery runs off the national grid, energy consumption costs are reduced dramatically by the innovative D:Hybrid model. Fuel-efficient operation is also guaranteed while running in backup mode alongside the diesel generator. Power from the renewable energy source is utilised whenever possible by the brewery's production unit, thus keeping the company's energy costs permanently low.

In countries where energy provision via the public electricity grid is unreliable, diesel generators are often used to provide a basic power supply infrastructure. Donauer's D:Hybrid Energy Management is a technical system solution designed to save diesel fuel by embedding solar power plant into generator-based electricity grids. Integrating photovoltaics as an additional source of energy reduces diesel generator fuel consumption, achieving considerable savings on the generators' high running costs. A rapid ROI is ensured in particular by the positive trend in photovoltaic system pricing.

Donauer Solartechnik maintains branches in seven other European countries, Oman and Brazil.
