Detaillierte Präsentation des Projekts
A Swiss NGO, an university of applied sciences and Malagasy artisans combine theirs competences in order to build 4 small hydroelectric plants.

Building low-cost hydraulic energy for the developping countries is possible ! A Swiss-based NGO – CEAS– and a team of the university of Applied Sciences in Fribourg set theirself this ambitious challenge.
In Madagascar, only 5% of habitants have access to the national electric network, which impacts the social and economic development. Therefore, the CEAS has invested a lot to develop local capacities and competences for renewable energy production since 20XX. In 2015, we builded a low-cost wind turbine thanks to our Kiss Bankers. We hope that tomorrow the Malagasy people will be able to exploit the power of their hydraulic resources. Small hydroelectric plants will be adapted to low head (approximately 3 meters high) to produce until 3 kW.
Swiss NGO, CEAS, is cooperating with an university of Applied Sciences well-know for its hydraulic, mechanical and electrical competences. Under the supervision of three professors, Nicolas El-Hayek, a young engineer, is closed to finish the first prototype of a small hydroelectric plant. It would be simple, strong and affordable. In the middle of November, he is flying to Madagascar, where he is going to collaborate with local workshop, Tsiky. Together, they are going to build this first prototype and to start three other plants 100% made in Madagascar ! Those would be built in villages, which do not have access to national electricity network.
At the same time, the manufacturing process would be published on an open-source plateform, lowtech lab. This ways everyone would have access this technology !
This project would improve the life conditions of Malgasy families at various level with electrification.
Together, let’s make the red island a new land of hydraulic energy.

The first prototype are going to be built in the district of Amboniriana. Located in the surrounding of a national road, RN7, which connected Tana to Antsirabe. This highland region is known for the rice culture(1200m high).

Do you want this prototype to become a reality ?
Join us and together, we will create clean, sustainable and affordable energy for dozens of Malagasy families !

Let's install together four small hydroelectric plants "Made in Madagascar" !
