July 24, 2018, Toronto, ON – IDSUD Energies Afrique, a renewable energy company and division of IDSUD Energies, has installed Smart Off-Grid technology from Clear Blue Technologies International Inc.

Logintek Morocco, a project by Zinafrik Development Group, is the first national private network of integrated logistics and industrial cities, designed as transit hubs for Morocco and to the rest of Africa.  This is phase 1 of a multi-phase project expected to total almost 5,000 Smart Off-Grid streetlights.

With extensive management and control capabilities, automated monitoring and alerts, proactive weather forecasting, and the ability to optimize systems remotely, Smart Off-Grid technology keeps off-grid systems running, prevents outages, and enables remote maintenance and troubleshooting when needed to quickly resolve any issues. The result is unmatched reliability, long-lasting system performance, and a reduction of up to 80 percent in installation and maintenance costs.

Antoine Ettori of IDSUD Energies, said: “Clear Blue’s Smart Off-Grid technology, management service, and expertise have been important keys for the success of this NHEOLIGHT project over the six-month installation period. In collaboration, we installed all systems as the streets were constructed, and on a daily basis were notified by Clear Blue of any issues and fixes needed for the next phase. Today, 100 percent of the systems are operating properly.”

Miriam Tuerk, co-founder and CEO of Clear Blue, said “Clean, managed, ‘wireless’ power is at the core of our company’s vision.  IDSUD Energies is becoming a leader in renewable energy and we are excited to be partnering with them to deliver the most reliable, cost-effective street lighting for Logintek Morocco and elsewhere.”
