Our Remote Power Experts

Answer Your Questions

  • While the system has many parts, there are three primary functional areas. The genset with fuel tank, the battery power cabinet and the solar skid with a mounted array of panels. They Integrate seamlessly to provide remote power users with excellent annual cost reductions.

  • Configuration depends on environment, so we assess then configure each system to suit your needs. A standard telco tower load is 3kW. This would be served by a genset, power cabinet, 36kWh of battery storage and an environmental control unit with aircon. If the site size were bigger, we would place more solar arrays or upgrade you to a larger model in the series. We also offer relevant add on functions to increase performance in challenging environments.

  • You can expect a significant reduction in fuel consumption across the network. This is due to the high efficiency of the generator, the variance of engine speed and a reduction in the need for couplings or bearings. When multiplied across a network, annual fuel use is significantly reduced. These savings are further supplemented by a reduction in maintenance costs due to our remote monitoring capability. Exact savings depend on the performance of your legacy system and are are predicted with more detail upon our assessment.

  • If you have the load, we have the system to supply it! As such, capacity varies across the remote series and is tailored per site. However, our specialist Telco offering, the SEC 12, has a standard internal battery capacity of up to 116kWh and we can install solar arrays to generate as much as 13.3kW.

  • Our energy storage capacity solves the intermittency issue related to all renewable energy sources. But we design our units to #deliver 99%+ uptime. This is why a back up generator is included. Should solar saturation drop, we use it to ensure service doesn’t drop.

  • It can do, we’re testing this already and initial research is proving positive. Get in touch if you wish to find out more.

  • We select the best technology and NMC Lithium-Ion batteries offer the highest cycle life performance of any storage solution. Their capacity for a longer service life is coupled with our intelligent charging system which monitors performance and controls temperature. The result is far superior to traditional Lead Acid installations.

  • Capacity varies per installation and site load but ranges from 6-12 kW. We strive to ensure we use environmentally sound supply chains for all batteries and we’re always looking for the latest innovations in cell technology.

  • Modularity is a leading design principle of the SEC Remote Series. This allows for a pick and pack option where users can customise each unit according to site requirements. You can receive these fully assembled or completely knocked down for on-site assembly. The modular nature of the design allows for upgrades and extra functionality without compromising the total integration of the unit.

  • The system is robust and long lasting. Internal elements are protected with temperature control and all external components are powder coated for extra protection with aluminium or zinc plated steel.

  • The weight varies according to site specs and the modular design you choose. You can expect anything from 450kg to 5,000 kg. A standard telco installation is approximately 600 kg. This includes the generator, the battery bank, solar array and fuel.

  • The standard runtime of the generator is only two hours per day which should give you a base comparative to measure it against legacy systems. As our fuel tanks are either 600, 1200 or 1800 litres, the exact consumption depends on the model.

  • We designed the remote series for maximum security. In the first instance, we have attended to physical security with a variety of design elements to restrict theft. These include six point locking, double skinned casing, hidden hinges, secure lock boxes, an anti fuel syphon and triple layer access.

    We’ve also considered data security and built in robust digital protection. We host our hub site in a cloud environment. All communications are protected from corruption via a VPN and if we lose connectivity, we automatically gather and process data in real time, allowing the system to stay online while simultaneously issuing an alarm through our remote monitoring system.

  • We can supply standard diesel gensets or microturbine options which use a fuel mixture of diesel and kerosene that’s unique to the system. While we can cater to almost any fuel, our preferred source of power is sunshine.

  • With full remote monitoring and control, maintenance is very low. You can expect 1000 hours of genset operation between visits. This is because the generator is used only when there’s insufficient solar. So while the exact interval differs according to the system installed on site and usage levels, maintenance intervals on our remote series are typically 4 times longer than those on legacy systems.

  • After we’ve assessed your site and recommended the right solution you can expect installation between 12-16 weeks. Once delivered, the system takes approximately six hours to install.

  • Yes, our Remote Monitoring System (RMS) allows total control from anywhere.

  • Our Remote Monitoring System (RMS) provides fault and performance monitoring. Effectively this means you can view alarms, take corrective actions. You can also see critical information like fuel consumption, fuel levels, battery heath and of course the power that’s been generated.

  • The design of the SEC RS series means that for flat sites, almost no preparation is required. We mount it on a solar plinth so it can be installed straight onto the site, then secured with helical screws into the earth. You do have the option of laying a vegetation membrane under the system, but otherwise, no concrete foundations are required.

  • We have chosen the best technology in the business and offer a back to back warranty with the opportunity to extend. Module warranty periods differ according to your configuration, but the system is designed to support both the environmental conditions and the maximum battery cycle, so you can be assured of quality.

  • The first thing we do is collect your data, including the location and the current configuration of your existing remote power solution. Then we assess the site’s potential, identify how we could maximise performance, and locate any issues that need to be remedied. After this, we consider every element and recommend a solution with the modules you need to maximise yield. Finally, we create a comparative financial analysis to show you the potential Levelized Cost of Energy Savings you have available with the SECRS.

  • We are happy to discuss PoC installations in cases where we have a clear understanding of the criteria for success and a commitment to dedicate resources.

We will tailor a remote power solution just for you
