Clear Blue Technologies International Inc., the Smart Off-Grid Company, has announced that it received its first order from Telia Cameroon (“Telia”) for initial systems as part of its telecommunications service rollout in Cameroon for MTN. Following successful pilot validation, the initial rollout of 50 systems is expected in early 2023.
Clear Blue will supply its Nano-Grid Smart Off-Grid power solution and will be Telia Cameroon’s preferred Solar power provider for its program with MTN Cameroon. These 50 sites have an estimated 5-year lifetime contract value of $1M CAD for Clear Blue.
Clear Blue Technologies’ systems have incredible value for telecommunications. To support applications in Cameroon, we need systems that are cost-effective and provide reliable solar power without the need for diesel generators. Clear Blue’s systems are remotely managed and operated by Clear Blue, reducing the initial size and CAPEX, while also significantly reducing OPEX, as we won’t have to go to the site for maintenance and can triage a problem before it occurs.Jean Baptiste, Manager, Telia Cameroon
Telia Cameroon is an exciting new strategic partner providing valuable services to help connect the unconnected in Africa. They have a number of telecom deployments and work with major network operators like MTN Cameroon to bring connectivity to more people across Cameroon. We are thrilled to be working with Telia on this rollout program and, hopefully, many more to come in the future. The desire to move away from traditional diesel generator-based solutions was a key element of Telia’s business plan. Their commitment to using Smart Off-Grid power will help transform access to telecom service across the country. As a market leader in the provision of clean, managed, off-grid wireless power for mission-critical telecommunications systems, Clear Blue is solving one of the biggest barriers to expanding connectivity in emerging markets – the ability to access cost-effective, reliable solar power. Telia Cameroon is bringing connectivity access across Cameroon, and we are excited to see what the future holds with them.Miriam Tuerk, Co-founder and CEO, Clear Blue
