SunPower™ Off-Grid Solutions
When solar power energises remote areas
SunPower, through the recent acquisition of Tenesol, has been designing and tailoring off-grid solutions for nearly 30 years to suit local geographical specificities and meet the energy consumption needs, offering standard and back up PV solutions, fully solar and hybrid (solar/diesel).
Our off-grid solutions are ideal for telecommunication and oil & gas companies.
Telecom: Highest efficiency and reliability turn-key solutions to reduce your OPEX
Solar has been identified as a strategic investment by telecom operators: a reliable way to reduce energy OPEX with a short payback time, in comparison to traditional diesel solutions or other sources of energy, as well as to reduce CO2 emissions and a long-term commitment in sustainability.
SunPower is the global leader in Telecom since more than 20 years. We installed our first telecom system in Togo in 1989, and since a total of 3,000 systems has been installed worldwide. One of our largest and most successful projects was carried out in partnership with telecoms giant Orange; the project was awarded with the “best wireless infrastructure innovation award” at the “Global Telecoms Business Innovation Awards” in 2010.
SunPower can supply high efficiency full turnkey solutions:
- For multiple telecommunication applications (including fixed, mobile and radio operated networks).
- For all forms of transmitting base stations (including small-sized, microwave repeater and wireless base transceiver stations).
- And for peripheral infrastructures such as lighting, security and air conditioners.
Oil & Gas: An affiliate of Total to reduce your energy OPEX
Recently oil & gas operators have identified solar power as a viable alternative and/or complement to diesel generators, given the high solar irradiation of most oil & gas locations, its ability to perform efficiently on high-risk onshore and off-shore systems in extreme environments (e.g. maritime, salty, desert, dusty, etc.).
For over 25 years, SunPower, an affiliate of Total the world’s fifth largest publicly-traded international oil and gas company, has supplied customised turnkey solar solutions to the industry in North Africa, the Middle East and South America. In the Middle East alone, the company has delivered more than 1,000 solar systems to some of the region’s largest operators.
SunPower offers off-grid oil & gas applications to provide power for exploration, tracking, boring, transporting, cathodic protection (such as well heads and pipelines), lighting, security, site data monitoring and emergency shut-down equipment.
