Saft has delivered an advanced Lithium-ion Energy Storage System (ESS) to power lighting and Wi-Fi for the Champ de Mars, the grand public square in Port-au-Prince, Haïti. The contract with Montreal-based Geninov Group, a diversified energy and engineering technology company, was finalized in May 2015.

The Champ de Mars is the largest recreational park in Haïti. The Saft ESS, to be installed in the vicinity of the Triomphe Cultural Centre in conjunction with approximately 110 kW of solar panels, is comprised of one Intensium® Max 20E energy battery container. The configuration is designed to collect power during sunlight hours and to illuminate the entire park area at night while providing Wi-Fi coverage in the immediate vicinity.
