Energy and drinking water for camps

Independently supply refugees and mobile medical units

Faber Anwendungsfelder Camps 02

The numbers of people fleeing political unrest, persecution and climate-induced disasters is continuously rising around the world. Their first place of refuge is often a camp in remote areas close to the border. Mobile medical units, small businesses, kitchens and shelters must be supplied with energy. However, there is normally no connection to the public grid.

These camps are designed as a temporary solution, and further expansions and therefore the energy needs of such setups can change any time at short notice, so implementing them requires mobile and flexible infrastructure solutions. So far, the necessary electricity is almost exclusively produced by diesel generators.

Off-grid energy for military camps, radar and radio stations

The situation is similar in the military sector for supplying camps and outposts or individual consumers such as field hospitals, radar and radio stations.

For their varied and diverse deployments domestically and abroad, the armed forces need a suitable temporary power supply that can be quickly commissioned, flexibly enlarged and easily integrated with existing supply structures. Here, too, supply mostly relies on diesel generators.

Save fuel, reduce noise and emissions with FABER

In particular in crisis regions, fuel transport is often highly complex and expensive. Diesel generators also produce noise and emissions and must be serviced regularly. FABER’s solar containers, on the other hand, enable camp operators to efficiently leverage freely available solar power to significantly reduce the use of diesel generators. This lowers costs and efforts for fuel procurement and additionally cuts noise and environmental emissions.

Perfectly enlarge existing supply structures

In case of greater energy needs—for example, when camps have to expand and the existing energy infrastructure has to be enhanced and optimised—our solar containers can be integrated with the existing grid infrastructure. During the day, cost-effective solar power supplies consumers. At night, battery storage accommodates the small load requirements. This avoids running diesel generators at low revs, thereby reducing maintenance and upkeep costs.

Build a basic supply from standalone operations

As an alternative, use the PV containers to realise an independent basic supply for operating smaller delivery points such as military camps, field hospitals or mobile medical units or single consumers such as radar or radio masts. During the day, consumers are primarily supplied on the basis of renewable energies.

Excess solar power is buffered in the battery storage to be used at a later date—for example, at night. In case of increased output requirements or faults, the integrated 24/7 backup system guarantees safe and reliable power supply at any time.

Standardise technology

In order to ensure maximum interoperability of the container system with existing supply systems, FABER Infrastructure has integrated a state-of-the-art control system for its container-based power supply, which excellently combines with the most diverse generation and mains infrastructures under the most varied load conditions.
