The wide variety of energy needs involved in oil and mining, including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and telemetry, make solar energy a cost effective way to provide power to production sites.
Cathodic protection (CP) controls the corrosion of a metal surface and is used extensively in the oil and gas industry. Cathodic protection systems are most commonly used to protect steel, …
The systems are partially assembled to facilitate transportation. For easy assembly in the field, the control subsystem is pre-assembled into the battery enclosure. Careful component selection results in a solar power system with a lifetime exceeding 25 years with battery replacements every five to ten years.
PCE Pacific, Inc., and SunWize partnered to provide a power solution to a goldmine operator for a leak detection system at a tailings pond. The equipment to be powered consisted of I/O and SCADA radios in a high US desert environment at approximately 5000-6000’ above sea level.
The system solution is a SunWize® Power Station Hybrid, consisting of a 7680-watt solar array on a galvanized support structure, a 3-day battery bank mounted in powder coated steel enclosures with separate charge controls and engine generator controls.
The solar-powered system will save the Arsenal a substantial amount of natural gas when the buildings being served have no need for steam by eliminating thermal losses associated with approximately 2,000 feet of steam piping
The benefits of the system are reduced fuel consumption, reduced emissions, reduced noise levels at the employee housing and lower annual operational costs.
Customized solution of power system components to meet existing infrastructure site constraints.
SunWize worked with their customer, SEC Automation, to provide power in remote sites for dissolved oxygen (D.O.) monitoring sites at two hydro plants for the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission
Design summaries, created by SunWize, assisted SEC with the building and configuration of the solar powered D.O./radio control systems. Two separate systems consisting of two solar powered remote radios, D.O. analyzers and a master ModBus radio were installed at key locations along the river.
The system solution is a grid-tied SunWize® Power Online consisting of a 60 watt battery charger and a 48-hour battery bank assembled in a standard aluminum pole mounted enclosure
