Integral solar system for processing karite/shea nuts
A group of three machines from Solar Milling are running now in a village for the benefit of a women cooperative.
The installation, sponsored by the Canadian NGO www.thestrongestoak.org consist in a 6.5kWp solar power to drive one stone mill for edible flour, one crusher to break Shea / Karité nuts and one Shea butter maker.
The system works directly from Sun radiation, achieving a great performance on terms of power, reliability and productive use.
A solar system aside, provides 230 V energy 24/7 from a battery bank, for phone charging, photocopier, fridge, computer and Wi-Fi facility covering the neighborhood.
This is the very first installation in the World, where solar energy makes Shea butter processing much easier in an ecological way.
