ARVEY success stories in “Humanitarian Aid”
— Always supplied with power even in crisis situations —
A school without electricity? – Unimaginable. A home without electricity? – Unbelievable. A hospital without electricity? – Impossible.
Yet in some places these situations are still bitter reality. We don’t want to leave this fact standing and have made “easy and safe access to energy for everyone” our mission, as we already stated in our guiding principle.
The areas of application of our devices in humanitarian aid are manifold. Let’s come back to school again. In today’s age of digitalisation, learning through books is usually not enough. For a comprehensive school education, computers with a connection to the internet are also needed. However, this and also continuous power supply are a great challenge. With the help of solar panels and generators, both self-sufficiency and education are guaranteed.
Schools as well as houses or whole villages can benefit from solar panels in combination with generators. Especially inhabitants in crisis areas suffer from a volatile power supply. But even people who previously depended on daylight can gain in quality of life through light during night-time.
ARVEY can also provide support in mine clearance. Either animals, such as dogs or rats, or metal detectors are used in the search. Those need electricity for their batteries and can be charged by power generators anytime and anywhere.
In the event of a disaster, the emergency shelter is one of the first points of contact for people who are exposed to this exceptional situation. The shelters must be ready for use shortly after the alarm is raised and must have their own power supply in case of a power failure. Be it heating, communication channels or even just the light at night. Energy is incredibly important for a little normality in an exceptional situation. Therefore, solar energy is the optimal choice here as well, as it also guarantees self-sufficiency with our H300 in combination with the A1.
A hospital without electricity? – Impossible. For this reason, makeshift hospitals, initial medical supplies in emergency accommodation or hospital wards in areas without a secure power supply must always be supplied with electricity. A few solar panels and generators can do a lot here. Among other things, the artificial respiration of people can be guaranteed throughout.
Even if we cannot put ourselves in these situations, we try our best to develop our equipment in such a way that it can be used for such operations. So that the idea of a school, home or hospital without electricity will one day be a thing of the past.
Planson International, a women-owned company, provides IT solution for humanitarian aid, development, sustainability, and emergency response to organisations worldwide. Planson International is also committed to the principles of the United Nations Global Impact. With us as a partner, Planson International can deliver our A1 power generator to aid projects around the world to provide customised solutions in emergencies.
A better shelter – 17,5 m², a lockable door, four windows and ventilation, non-transparent plastic roof and walls and solar powered. This is how the modular emergency shelters of Better Shelter can be described. Better Shelter is a humanitarian innovation project, launched by IKEA Foundation, in partnership with UNHCR. This project has already helped people in need worldwide. AXSOL supported Better Shelter in 2015 and 2016 with the H300 and A1 solar panels to power a refugee camp on Lesvos.
From Greece to Ethiopia. In cooperation with Prof. Dr. Baker Farangis we supply electricity to the Adigrat University in Ehiopia. We were allowed to install solar panels for the physics building. So the students of electrical engineering can directly gain practical experience.
