In response to the pressing energy crisis facing the country, the South African government is taking steps to bolster the renewable energy sector and alleviate strain on the national grid. As part of this effort, a proposed legislative amendment seeks to provide businesses with a tax incentive to invest in renewable energy – probably including storage, and particularly batteries.

NEC XON has provided the Malawi Fertilizer Company (MFC) with a state-of-the-art Hybrid Power System (HPS) to protect MFC’s investment in new infrastructure in Nacala, Liwonde and Blantyre. According to Mark Chapman, MFC Liwonde Plant Manager, the system’s design is comprehensive and of excellent quality - and the NEC XON team’s work ethic is exceptional with problem solving skills par excellence. “No challenge is too big for them. Remote system monitoring is excellent and teams are always on standby to assist,” he says.
The underlying aim was to improve business efficiency on the Nacala corridor. MFC blends and supplies NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) fertilizer mixtures for the region’s agricultural sector.
