Eltek Valere Pioneers One-Stop Source For High Efficiency Telecom Solar Solution
Drammen, Norway – June 16, 2009 – Eltek Valere today announced it has partnered with key solar component vendors to become a one-stop-shop for carriers investing in green and sustainable power solutions for wireless and broadband remote sites.
Eltek Valere’s Global Sourcing Team (GST) has negotiated supply agreements with global vendors of solar panels, cyclic batteries and tracking systems. With peripheral hardware being sourced locally, Eltek Valere with its leading products and this ecosystem of partners can deliver complete solar and hybrid power solutions to both existing and new networks globally.
The announcement comes in conjunction with the release of the company’s new Flatpack2 HE Solar Converter providing Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) to optimize energy utilization of the solar panels and galvanic isolation for improved safety and reliability. The solar converter is based on Eltek Valere’s High Efficiency (HE) technology, delivering 96% efficiency and cutting power loss and heat generation in half compared to conventional technology.
The objective of a solar power installation is reduced total cost of ownership by cutting energy-related operating and maintenance costs, increased network reliability and reach as well as improved environmental performance. This initiative from Eltek Valere smoothes out the logistics for carriers while giving them a system optimized for their needs.
“The technology is available to make solar power an effective energy source for telecom applications in remote areas with limited or no access to electricity grid,” said Morten Schoyen, Eltek Valere Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re taking a major step toward bringing this environmental consciousness into global telecommunications by providing a complete and viable solar or hybrid solution that service providers can implement quickly and that makes financial sense.”
