POWER GENERATION FOR REMOTE APPLICATIONS

Power generators to supply electricity in remote regions based on solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs):

  • Energy availability – grid-independent operation with high availability
  • Energy cost reduction – high efficiency and low maintenance costs

Optimised solution for system providers offering end customers integration, installation and services.

APPLICATIONS

Power supply for technical equipment in remote regions

  • Applications in the oil and gas industry, such as cathodic corrosion protection, remote-controlled gate valves, automation systems or gas pressure reduction and metering stations
  • Metering systems | SCADA systems
  • Mobile phone and radio stations
  • Remote monitoring and lighting
