Swedish power systems specialist for telecom infrastructure Flexenclosure has opened its four office this year, this time in Islamabad, Pakistan.
According to the company, it has seen good traction in Africa and Asia for its eSite mobile site power management solution as well as its eCentre modular data centre solution.
The new office in Islamabad, Pakistan, will cover Pakistan and Central Asia. In Pakistan alone, there is a market of at least 35,000 telecom towers, of which a majority are without a reliable grid connection, the company said.
“Central Asia is a region with severe challenges related to power generation,” said David King, CEO, Flexenclosure. “Pakistan is a country with a growing telecom market, but the gap between power generation and power requirement is widening at a phenomenal rate, with demand for electricity increasing faster than the power companies’ ability to generate it. In Afghanistan about 70 percent of the base station sites are off-grid and most of the on-grid sites have highly unreliable grid connections.”
“So the challenges are huge, and this is where eSite and eCentre fit in perfectly. eSite, with its ability to power base stations in areas off the grid or with unrealiable grid, can help mobile operators reach target groups that would otherwise have been uneconomical to serve.”
So far this year, Flexenclosure has opened offices in Gurgaon, India, Lagos, Nigeria, and Dubai, UAE.
