MUNICH and ACCRA, Ghana, 11 December 2018 – Special Ice, the leading manufacturing company in the beverage industry in Ghana, chose REDAVIA, one of the global market leaders of cost-effective, reliable and clean solar power for businesses and communities, to establish its first solar farm in Ghana.
The agreement will see nine solar units and a total of 756 kWp being deployed at the Special Ice factory in the Oyarifa district in Accra, which will represent REDAVIA’s largest solar farm in Ghana to date.
Special Ice felt compelled to choose REDAVIA solar power due to the ability to save money on a monthly basis from the get-go and own their solar farm at the end of the contract.
“We are delighted that we found REDAVIA as a partner that we can trust for our venture into renewables and solar in particular,” says Dr. Ernest Ofori Sarpong, CEO at Special Ice. “Our vision ‘to be the most outstanding manufacturing company in the beverage industry producing and generating natural great taste’ is dear to our heart, and our investment into solar will help to set us apart in the industry in terms of cost structure, sustainability and CO2 emissions.”
Erwin Spolders, CEO & founder of REDAVIA, confirms, “We are very proud that REDAVIA gained the trust of one of the most respected businessmen in Ghana, confirming the benefit of solar power and its impact to the bottom line of a growing company like Special Ice.”
