PSC Solar Uk Debuts Covid-19 Contactless Transportable Solar Powered Hand Wash/Sanitizer Stations In Nigeria, Ghana, Niger, Benin And Togo
PSC SOLAR (UK), Africa’s largest manufacturer of solar PV modules and integrator of backup systems for solar / hybrid inverters, has once again set the pace with its new innovation and technology.
At the opening ceremony of this groundbreaking and life-saving innovation on Monday 3rd August 2020 in Lagos, Senior Project and Design Engineer Engr. Emmanuel AJAYI proudly confirmed that these Covid-19 portable hand washing / disinfecting stations were conceived in Nigeria, designed in Nigeria and built in Nigeria by Nigerian engineers using 100% local materials.
Engr Ajayi said it was high time that Africans looked inward for solutions to problems instead of sitting around waiting for others to come up with solutions for us.
This is our own contribution to the excellent work that the government of Lagos state and the Nigerian federal government are doing in the fight against Covid-19, Engr Ajayi praised the joint efforts of the President’s Task Force as well as the tireless efforts of the state government.
PSC SOLAR UK’s Covid-19 Contactless Portable Solar Powered Hand Wash Stations are specially designed for use in schools, churches and mosques, event centers, government buildings, banks, offices, political gatherings, settlements, shopping malls, commercial bus depots and train stations etc. and anywhere, where large numbers of people are visiting.
There are contactless, portable, automatic / autonomous devices that run 24/7 on solar power during the day and embedded battery at night.

The solar powered hand washing machine forces users to wash their hands with VIRUCIDAL / ANTIBACTERIAL SOAP dispensed from a soap dispenser with a non-contact motion sensor. Users also rinse their hands with clean water from a non-contact motion sensor tap and disinfect their hands with ALCOHOL BASED hand sanitizer, which is also dispensed from a non-contact motion sensor.
The lead designer and project team leader Engr. Emmanuel Ajayi shared some technical details around the design of the exquisite project.
Engr. Emmanuel Ajayi explained that the solar powered hand wash / disinfect station consists of an 85 W solar panel, a 12 V / 60 A PWM solar charge controller, a 12 V / 7 Ah battery, a DC water pump and others here in Nigeria procured materials.
PSC SOLAR (UK) ENGEERING TEAM
When asked why they decided to use metal to make this project, Engr Emmanuel said for the purpose of durability.
Other participating engineers, Engr Moses Okoroafor (electronics engineer) and Engr. Alex Ntogo (project engineer), also informed us that the station has a voltage regulator that adjusts the entire device to the 12 V battery. This regulator helps bring the 12V down to the actual voltage design of 6V
Engr Moses Okoroafor also told us that the station has a 5 second timer. When this timer detects movement, the timer starts the pumps for 5 seconds and then switches them off.
Engr Moses went on to explain to us the preventive measures that were being taken to avoid damage to the electronic parts of the station. He said that an optical isolator was used in the construction of this world standard station.
He said the isolator’s job is to create an isolated path between the pump and the other parts of the electronics. The pump generates a reverse voltage when it is switched on and off and this reverse voltage can be harmful to the other electronics. The isolator makes the pump isolated from other parts of the circuit so that the reverse voltage, which is known as back emf, doesn’t affect anything else.
