PV systems for North Africa telecoms project

Carmanah Technologies has received a follow up order valued at approximately C$2.3 million from Lyon, France-based telecom provider TWIST to supply solar power systems for a telecommunications project in North Africa. The project, facilitated by Solergitech, Carmanah’s distributor in the region, will power a network of telecommunications towers with the company’s stand-alone solar power systems.

This order follows an initial $1 million order last September as a part of an ongoing project with a total estimated value of up to $4 million over the next three years.

For this communications application, Carmanah is powering each of the remote telecom towers with a stand-alone solar power source that includes photovoltaic modules, controllers and batteries – all optimized for maximum performance within the region’s challenging geographic and environmental conditions.

As a dependable alternative to traditional sources of electricity, each solar power system offers a convenient and cost-effective solution – free from grid access, power bills, fuel deliveries or generator maintenance, says Carmanah.
