Averox Adds Wind/Solar Generators For Telecom Base Stations

London, UK (SPX) May 05, 2008
Averox has announced that it has added the provision and installation of wind and solar powered generators for telecom base stations to its telecom services portfolio. "Averox has been providing telecom services on a turn key basis for some years to mobile operators to enable them to rapidly deploy base stations," said Mr. Salman Mahmood, Averox's President and CEO.

"We have significant experience in telecom services and are pleased that we can now offer to provide, install and maintain wind and solar powered generators for base stations as part of our expanded portfolio offerings to our customers," he continued.

"Many telecom base stations are located in remote areas of emerging countries where electricity is either not available, is not reliable or is very expensive. In the past, this has required the use of diesel generators to provide power to the base station.

"This is expensive and requires regular visits by telecom engineers for maintenance and refueling. Wind turbines and solar panels can be used to generate energy independently without the need for diesel generators or expensive maintenance. Additionally, they can generate revenue from the excess electricity produced which can be sold to the local utility," Mahmood added.

"The power demand of base stations accounts for about 90% of the energy requirements of a mobile network. Wind generator equipment is cheaper than diesel generators to buy and install, so the lowered investment cost and the increased prices of fossil fuels improve the business case for utilizing renewable energy sources.

"These factors plus the environment friendly benefits of renewable energy, in our view, lead us to expect that renewable energy will be the first choice for remote base station sites as early as 2009. We believe that a base station powered by renewable energy sources should be able to recover its installation costs after two to four years, in a good sunny or windy location, as a result of the combination of lower energy costs and revenue from selling excess power to the local utility," he concluded.
