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 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
