Off-grid power systems

Diesel remains the fuel of choice for generating power in remote areas where climates are often harsh. But environmental challenges and social apprehension about using fossil-based energy sources, in tandem with technological advances in energy storage, are gradually changing the way things stand. There’s also the issue of sourcing power from fuel, a costly process that’s driving the innovation of alternative energy solutions, including heat recovery and renewable power systems.

However, transforming off-grid power applications cannot come at the expense of system reliability. After all, the profitability of many industry players and the health and safety of various communities are at stake.

Your challenges are complex…

There are several options for supplying power to your remote facilities, including diesel, wind, solar and hydropower, combined with optimization using energy storage and heat recovery systems.

Whether you want to build a new plant or optimize your existing facilities, the solutions you choose must be technically sound, flexible, easy to operate and, most importantly, reliable.

This doesn’t come easy and requires a great deal of multidisciplinary knowledge with a holistic understanding of your system.

Your challenges:

  • Reduce consumption of fossil fuels
  • Reduce or control your operating expenses
  • Improve your environmental footprint
  • Ensure the health and safety of workers and communities
  • Ensure system reliability
  • Mitigate system instability threats
