Victoria, Canada (SPX) Jul 10, 2009
Carmanah Technologies has received a follow up order valued at approximately CAD $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 authorized 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.
"This solar technology has proven to be the best solution for powering our telecommunications equipment at these remote locations," said Christophe Leroy, director-general, TWIST.
