The World Leading Solution
Made in Austria/EU

5 good reasons to choose our solar LED illumination systems

01

Reliable operation even during the most cloudy rainy season! The underlying concept is a constant „overproduction“ of energy and perfect balance of component dimensioning, ensuring a fully recharged battery every night. Our LEDs will even reliably operate in a „worst case“ when energy production should fall below the demand due to our smart-look-ahead system, managing the battery status. 

02

Long operational life: solar panels 30 years +, LEDs 18 years +, batteries 12 years +
All products are of the highest quality. Low budget lights require early replacements, leading to huge costs and high waste accumulation. Furtehrmore, our technology produces brilliant continuous light with high contrast characteristics at a fraction of the usual required energy - prerequisite for longest durability of all components. 
 

03

Future- orientated systems!
Our products are designed to „last“ for even longer than the operational life might promise, as only part components have to be replaced after a certain period of time (e.g. batteries after 12 + years, LEDs after 18 years + etc. ). The components will then be replaced with the next generation, lasting even longer than the previous ones. This ensures even lower total costs in the long-term view.  

04

Anti-Theft Protection Concepts!
All valuable components are placed on top of a 7,7 m pole and can only be removed by the use of massive force creating a lot of noise and attention and in addition require expensive logistics e.g. lifting machine hiab.
Furthermore, all components DO NOT operate with other devices as they are electronically adjusted to each other. Corresponding „Warning Signs“ on the device will in addition explain this fact.  

05

No operational costs - lowest maintenance costs!
Our solar LEDs operate practically without any maintenance work except cleaning and checking of all components after every 32 months. It is a full-off grid system and therefore does not require energy from the already overloaded energy grid and is independent from rising prices for energy (diesel and electricity).

On-Grid

We have established an excellent reputation in Nigeria over many decades delivering solely the highest quality. Our track record therefore includes the implementation of large street light projects in many states inter alia Lagos, Abuja, Kano, Port Harcourt, Jigawa, Kaduna including our maintenance works that is among the most efficient in the country - Austrian standards for Nigerian roads.  

Illumination made in Austria/EU

Grid-connected lightning systems for roads, places and exterior 

01

ASTAC has partnered with innovative lighting manufacturers from Austria/EU. Apart from the modern and highly appealing design of the products, our partners have earned a strong reputation in developing methods to ensure outstanding quality, resulting in exceptional long operational life of up to 22 years, as well as brilliant and clear light quality with the lowest possible energy consumption.  Today, most tempting „low budget“ illumination systems operate at ca. 180 - 240 W, offering poor quality, very short operational life and nothing but unwanted effects of uncontrolled brightness and literally burning budgets due to high energy consumption. No compromise in quality - ASTAC goes a different and modern way 

02

 In contrast, our products create the perfect condition, producing a continuous light with great separation characteristics, ensuring highest safety for both high speed traffic and residents alike. They reduce energy and total project costs by 70 percent due to the long operational life and extremely low energy consumption resulting in greater financial resources for additional projects - a boosting effect for the development of cities, states and the society as a whole.  ASTACLighting is made from top-quality die-cast aluminium, developed to cope with physical impact and vibration. With a lifetime of 100,000 hours, efficacy of up to 139lm/W and control options, our lanterns guarantee years of reliable performance  making it an ideal choice for any project.

On-Grid and Off-Grid Solutions

Why in Nigeria?

Unreliable and insufficient power supply, tight budgets and the high demand for modern infrastructure require new and creative solutions of highest technological standards. Due to the geographical position of the country and thus the high solar energy yield (far greater than in Europe), Nigeria has truly been blessed by this inexhaustible and clean energy source with a convincing price/performance ratio. Solar energy cannot just reduce the load on the public electricity grid but factually be the solution for Nigeria’s energy problems and pave the way for a better future.  In addition, it is important to point out, that solar energy represents a highly lucrative and secure investment opportunity, as it can generate annual revenue of ca. 10 - 15 percent of investment when developed, installed and operated on the basis of our in- depths sustainability concepts.  We would be glad to hear from you in case of interest. 

Example: energy production of a 10 MW power Plant: 
Abuja: 20,000 MWh  (2,000 kWh/kWp)   114,200 persons
Kano:  22,500 MWh  (2,250 kWh/kWp)   128,500 persons
Lagos: 17,200 MWh  (1,720 kWh/kWp)     98,300 persons

Special requirements for special projects

It is in the nature of things (solar energy) that only smart, detailed concepts and innovative technology can create the basis for the usage of solar power plants. In the view of a „standalone power plant“, it is therefore even more important to achieve an alignment of the special characteristics of solar energy with the requirements of the consumer (private households, industry, etc.).
 This means, that during a daily period of 24 hours operation, varying requirements meet different energy production levels (e.g. energy demand before sunrise and after sunset etc. There is also the fact, that power plants in many areas can only work as standalone systems that provide the voltage level and frequency - providing the grid - as there is no energy supply available in many regions at the present moment. This is the fundamental difference to grid-connected systems, where the energy grid is provided and the solar power plant operates as an addition to the main supplied energy. Standalone systems require larger storage capacities than grid-connected systems. Such projects would not have been practically possible to implement just a few years ago due to disproportionate costs, but fortunately this has changed considerably and will even more in the near future. We would again like to point out, that our power plant conceptions include solutions for all terrains from compact or rocky ground to swamp and water areas. 

railway and i.t.

ASTAC provides all types of services in the fields of railway such as strategic orientation, development of conceptions, management, operation, maintenance, training etc.  Our exclusive partners from Austria and Switzerland are all senior rail traffic experts including former national railway board members and founder of high-speed railway lines. They will ensure that based on their huge experience and highest level of professionalism any task will be carried out with greatest care and firm determination.

The world leading solution
Made in Austria/EU

National prosperity depends on an efficient and modern railway system.  

Railway

We envision railways as  strong and dependable partners for the people and the economy, freeing cities from „traffic meltdown“ and connecting all regions with each other.  A partner that offers fast and safe transportation of passengers and goods, which will consequently open up entirely new possibilities, boosts the economy and therefore drastically improve the people’s life.  Together with our experienced partners, we can realize a technological quantum leap as we can implement the main aspects of modern railway within shortest time and simultaneously develop a corporation to highest international standards.  For reasons known, it is traditionally not the strength of Governments to make companies profitable and develop a modern and efficient operation. International governments consider the construction and implementation of infrastructural projects as their key areas. We would adjust to these standards of leading railway nations to focus on the key areas such as preservation, maintenance as well as modernization of the railway network and train stations based on our conceptions. 
A highly efficient railway system, adjusted to best meet the requirements of passengers and industry will generate a high capacity utilization and guarantee a rapid development.  Passengers will experience problem-free journeys, while the industry will profit from the accelerated processes. 

Software

Our solutions for revenue and fare collection are highly integrated, based on specially developed software technologies, future-proof and use existing off-the-shelf hardware for increased operative flexibility. They give railway operatives and management access to a wealth of data, providing both immediate, day-to-day operative feedback and management overviews, as well as a solid long- term data-base for analysis and strategic development of products and pricing strategies to optimize occupancy and yield. This solution is based on our technology for mobile business transaction replication and allows mobile units to have all required data at hand at anytime. When network connectivity is available, the mobile applications synchronize with all data centers. This happens without the user noticing. Our technology enforces a coherent state of the data for all mobile units, consistent with headquarters. Our software system for railway ticket sales and validation is in fact suitable for online and offline operation in the train and on the web. Replication is near-instantaneous to prevent fraud and duplicate use of tickets. Each operation of each ticket is recorded with detailed information. Detailed information for accounting systems is produced, but can be consolidated according to the needs of the accounting departments. Each ticket can be tracked before and after use; the amount of information visible to the ticket owner can be chosen.  

traffic management

ASTAC Nigeria Ltd. is a partner of Swarco/Futurit, world leading traffic management company from Austria, for Nigeria and West-Africa. We are proud of having a shared history with Swarco as more than 240 junctions in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt were installed in the past by ASTAC and we hope to connect to this successful past and build a great future together. We have worked out a reliable SOLAR POWERED solution with guaranteed 24/7 operation also during the rainy season. The high quality is exactly as our solar LED street light (all from Austria/EU) and has an outstanding operational life, far superior than any other product on the market.

Turn-key solutions made in Austria/EU

On-grid and off-grid powered traffic light and guiding systems  projects.

Smart traffic management 

ASTAC was a pioneer in the fields of traffic engineering in Nigeria being the first company to implement traffic management systems based on Austrian/international standards with large projects in Abuja, Lagos and Port Harcourt.  We offer tailor-made turn-key solutions from planning to implementation and maintenance to ensure our highest standards and to meet the high expectations of the clients.  Our traffic lights and LED traffic guiding systems as well as parking systems can be implemented as on-grid or as our preferred off-grid solutions (solar) and will massively improve the traffic flow and reduce the accident rate. 

Environmental

ASTAC is expanding its scope of core activities to rehabilitate and restore the constantly severely polluted environment. This segment includes the surface and deep cleaning of small and large areas with contaminated soils by the application of biological purification, the production of synthetic fuels based on new eco-friendly technologies as well as recycling of agricultural waste.   We have therefore partnered with highly innovative companies from Austria and Germany that specialized in these fields of environmental technologies and are working on the realisation of these projects in several regions in Nigeria.   

High-tech for a clean environment 

Environmental Rehabilitation And Restoration • Synthetic Fuels • Pyrolysis Plant 

ERR

Our products and concepts are an outstanding match in the combat against pollution. They cover the essential fields of surface as well as deep cleaning and in fact completely remove toxic substances from the ground or water.
Unlike conventional products which have only limited fields of application, ours remain highly effective in all areas without any unnecessary chemical residue deposits.  So far, toxic pollution has been fought with even more aggressive chemicals and with everyone consciously accepting its dangerous side - and long-term effects. Our products absorb, convert and in fact degrade pollutants by supporting the natural process and thus accelerate the restoration process with the benefit of lower costs and higher performance. 

Synthetic Fuel

The technology behind the production process of this German invention uses CO2 emissions to produce carbon-reduced, zero sulphur fuels (gasoline, diesel, kerosene, methanol). As its only feedstocks are CO2, methane (natural gas, biogas), water and (renewable electricity) it is perfectly suited to be produced in different regions worldwide and faces no feedstock limitations.  The new study of the Research Center of Energy Economics (FfE) shows that the energy efficiency of PtL processes is on average about 40%. The energy efficiency of the our synthetic fuel process is 72% and therefore 80% higher. In fact, syngas production in the single Plasma-Boudouard reactor is about 86% with the rest of the losses coming from the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis. 

Pyrolysis Plant

Our pyrolysis plant technology massively reduces agricultural waste and produces high quality biochar, energy and gives access to CO2 certificate trading. The produced biochar has a high carbon content of min. 85 to 95 percent enabling a broad spectrum of evolving products. The modular plant design can handle 36,000 tons of biomass per year at 8,000 hours of full utilization or more. The main raw material are waste wood as well as waste from sugar cane, coconut, elephant grass and other agricultural wastes and by-products. There is a constant energy surplus of 16,000 MWh during the production process of green carbon that can be used in the form of electricity and fed into the gridt. In addition another 20,000 MWh of green heating/cooling energy are produced.
