Adrian Kenya to install GenCell solutions to telecom stations
The telecom integrator, Adrian Kenya, will install GenCell’s A5 Off-Grid Power Solution at 800 telecom base stations in Kenya.
The solutions will replace diesel generators – which are harmful to the environment, expensive, and loud – with green fuel cell power.
By installing GenCell’s solution, the Kenyan firm anticipates it will save $84mn and 248,000 tons of CO2 within 10 years.
The installation is expected to begin in the final quarter of this year.

“For the last 20 years, diesel generators have been the dominant primary power source for off-grid or poor-grid base stations,” says Bernard Njoroge, Managing Director, Adrian Group.
“But today they are no longer a good fit for modern businesses that seek to minimize OPEX costs or for the environmentally conscious world in which we live.
“GenCell’s ability to create hydrogen from low-cost ammonia to power its fuel cells is a true technological breakthrough with profound impact for the telecom industry.”
“We can now enjoy all the benefits of fuel cells—ultra-reliability, low maintenance, no noise, and zero emissions—with a compelling business case that is too good to ignore.”
“Installing the GenCell A5 Off-Grid Power Solution is good for our business and the environment.”
