TO further improve the telecommunications space globally, Flexenclosure, a clean technology company in the telecoms infrastructure industry, has said that E-site solutions will help operating companies in the telecommunications industry reduces carbon dioxide emission by over 90 per cent if explored.

Flexenclosure, a Swedish firm, which recently strengthens its presence in the African market with the opening of a new office in Nairobi, Kenya, noted that its E-site solution was a revolutionary and 'green' off-grid base station site solution powered mainly by renewable energy sources (sun and wind) and controlled by an intelligent control system.

According to the Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Stefan Jern and the Vice-President Sales, Africa, Mr. Jonas Högström, in a jointly signed statement at the weekend, the solution would also enable operators to have massive savings in operating expenses and maintenance visits.

The jointly signed statement reads, 'Results from operations at sites in East Africa show a more than 90 per cent savings in fuel and a more than 80 per cent savings in operating expenses, and the reduction of the need for maintenance visits to only one per year. Emissions of carbon dioxide was also reduced by over 90 per cent.'

Jern stated that Flexenclosure's E-site soluiton is a revolutionary and 'green' off-grid base station site solution powered mainly by renewable energy sources (sun and wind) and controlled by an intelligent control system, enabling massive savings in operating expenses and maintenance visits.

According to him, the objective of the new office is to strengthen the company's position on the important African market and to be better able to support its clients in the region, many of which are already using the company's E-site solution or Switching Stations.

He said, 'With our focus on emerging markets - since our products are very suitable for off-grid conditions - the opening of an office covering the important East African market is a natural step, hopefully followed by an ever better footprint on the African continent soon.

The new office, he said would be beneficial to the company and to customers on the African market in many ways, including quicker and better support, better logistics and stronger and closer customer relations in general.'

Högström, who heads the new office said, 'I look forward to be able to offer Flexenclosure's advanced, environmentally friendly and cost-saving solutions to all the network suppliers, operators and contractors in the region. With the recent downward pressure on cellphone charges in east Africa, the industry players should really take a good look at Flexenclosure's highly impressive business case.'

Högström has 20 years of experience from the Information Technology and telecommunications industry with vast international experience from both the supplier and the carrier side, working in senior positions at Ericsson, IBM, TeliaSonera and Deutsche Telekom.

Before joining Flexenclosure Högström held a position as Business Development Executive for the telecomunications Sector in the Sub Saharan market at IBM South Africa in Johannesburg.
