Solamon Energy Corp is proud to announce its recent activity in Ghana will result in the launch of a highly anticipated division to be called Solamon (Ghana) through its partnership with ZYK Links, following their submission of an initial Expression of Interest to the Energy Ministry for the design and construction of a 15MW solar plant in Shama. The new partnership created in June will take advantage of not only the need for massive amounts of energy across West Africa, but effective immediately will also explore related opportunities matching the existing Solamon product line.
Solamon executives Jay Yeo and Christian Giles will return to Accra next month, joining CEO Graeme Boyce, to register Solamon (Ghana) with the government in Accra, as
well as attending the upcoming 2-day conference, Solar & Off-Grid Renewables Africa, being held at the Movenpick Hotel, September 15-16, 2014, covering the West Africa region. According to organizers, PV-Tech, "this high-level conference will explore the huge on- and off-grid market opportunities with an elite panel of over 45 international expert speakers, in-depth discussions, fantastic networking opportunities and a focused environment where deals will get done."
Ghana is a former British colony that is enjoying cooperation among its civic and business leaders, enabling the country to transform itself and position itself as a stable economy and to move forward in a civil manner to maximize profit potential from both its natural and human resources. This past June Solamon executives, while in Accra, met with numerous government ministers, administrators and officials to understand the process and impact of renewable energy sources on a very large and commercial level, whether solar, wind or thermal into the future.
To assure success on the ground, Solamon has concluded negotiations with and are happy to partner with ZYK Links. "They will help identify complementary product and services and opportunities moving forward in order to diversify and expand our product offering as we grow together with our numerous partners and suppliers," says Boyce.
In the long-term it's expected these activities will not only enhance communities across West Africa through the roll-out of local training and education initiatives, while reinforcing infrastructure programmes but also by erecting water filtration systems outfitted with solar powered pumps, and establishing new housing and additional facilities for employees and their families, and providing increased medical care, transportation logistics for supplies going in and local goods out, job creation across multiple disciplines, such as drivers, general laborers and security personnel living and working in “green certified" communities, augmenting the mid-term distribution of Solacentro charging stations for mobile phones, tablets and laptops.
