Tenesol reaches solar installation milestone
California, March 5, 2012
Tenesol, a leading global solar power provider, said it has reached a major milestone with the delivery of its 750th off-grid solar system to the oil and gas industry in the Middle East.
The company is into engineering, designing, manufacturing and installation and operation of solar energy systems for over 28 years.
Tenesol was recently acquired by California-based SunPower, a leading manufacturer of solar cell, solar panels and solar systems.
Since 2004, Tenesol said it has worked with some of the region’s largest oil and gas operators to provide solar solutions that answer the industry’s need for power in isolated locations.
“Providing sustainable energy solutions for off-grid equipment is now a major part of the oil and gas industry,” said Jacques Mathan, the export sales manager at Tenesol.
“As oil prices rise and climate change continues the need for alternative energy solutions increases. The suitability of solar energy’s capabilities in the oil and gas industry, combined with the Middle East’s ideal climate, means this is a fast expanding market.”
'Supplying 750 systems to the oil and gas industry in the Middle East means Tenesol has been involved in some of the region’s major oil and gas projects,' Mathan stated.
Tenesol’s systems are used for a range of activities such as powering security equipment, wellhead systems for cathodic protection, monitoring equipment and control systems along pipelines.
The individual systems range in size from just 2 kWp to much larger 372 kWp systems, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
