Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

According to bank provided information, Energy Vision Ltd. is an energy services company (ESCO) providing end-to-end energy services to telecom towers owned by mobile network operators or tower companies. EV's business model is to reduce the reliance on expensive and carbon-intensive diesel generators by installing hybrid power equipment (a combination of batteries, solar panels and diesel generators, all controlled by a remote monitoring system), implementing energy efficiency measures, and where possible connect off-grid towers to the grid. This leads to substantial cost reductions and GHG savings. EV was incorporated in 2014 and as of September 30, 2022 provides energy services to around 680 towers in Gabon (for Airtel) and Nigeria (for 9mobile and MPS). EV is owned by its co-founders, South African PE fund Metier through its MSCII Fund and Israel-based asset manager Altshuler Shaham, through its Altshuler Shaham Provident and Pension Fund.

The objective of FMO's proposed financing is as follows: (i) to refinance existing OpCo's debt in full; (ii) to finance the procurement, construction and installation of hybrid energy equipment, including battery storage solutions, DGs and renewable energy solutions related to new contracts; (iii) to finance the Borrower's project development costs associated with a new contract; (iv) to finance the Borrower's and OpCo's operating costs; and (v) to pay agreed fees, costs and expenses incurred in connection with the debt funding transaction. At least 50% of the proceeds are to be used in Sub Saharan Africa, the remainder in Asia (all in FMO eligible countries).

Contact Information
This section aims to support the local communities and local CSO to get to know which stakeholders are involved in a project with their roles and responsibilities. If available, there may be a complaint office for the respective bank which operates independently to receive and determine violations in policy and practice. Independent Accountability Mechanisms receive and respond to complaints. Most Independent Accountability Mechanisms offer two functions for addressing complaints: dispute resolution and compliance review.
