Warehousing & Logistics
Warehouses and logistics centers have significant energy demands, particularly when when cold storage sections are included.
At the same time, the large, open rooftops of these facilities are ideally suited to the installation of solar power plants. This creates the opportunity of offsetting the majority or even all of the facilities’ energy consumption with solar power, thereby dramatically reducing energy costs.
Enerwhere’s modular, scalable solar power solutions can be scaled easily from a few hundred kW for small local warehouses up to multi-MW systems to power regional distribution centers.
In Dubai, DEWA’s “Shams Dubai” net metering program allows the sale of surplus electricity back to the grid, thereby allowing customers to offset up to 100% of their annual energy consumption with low-cost solar power. In other locations where net metering has not yet been implemented (like the Northern Emirates), a rooftop solar system can nevertheless cover up to 30% of a facilities annual energy consumption.
Many industrial companies in the Middle East and Africa suffer from regular power outages, or do not have access to grid power at all. Even when power is available from the grid, it can be expensive, making up a significant share of operating expenses of a facility.
Enerwhere’s powerful solar solutions can be installed on the roof of the facility, where they help reduce your facility’s electricity costs, while increasing reliability of the power supply. Depending on the roof space available, the energy density of the facility and whether net metering is available, a solar system can often cover 25-100% of the annual energy demand.
For factories without a stable grid connection, Enerwhere’s solar mini-grids reduce the fuel consumption of conventional diesel generators and consequently the cost of conventional backup power solutions, while improving power quality and reducing spinning reserve requirements.
Construction projects typically rely on diesel generators to power the project offices, labor accommodation, tower cranes and other equipment associated with medium- to large-scale real estate developments and infrastructure projects.
While these power demands are significant, their daily demand profile corresponds well with solar energy production. Enerwhere provides solar-diesel and solar-battery hybrid generator systems for these applications, which greatly reduce the fuel consumption and cost compared to conventional diesel-only solutions.
Combining solar energy with high-efficiency diesel generators in one synchronized package enables the lowest fuel costs and emissions, while providing reliable power 24/7. Enerwhere has extensive experience in supplying construction power, from single-unit solar-battery systems for small site offices to multi-MW systems powering the accommodation of up to 20,000 construction staff.
Temporary accommodation is used in many industries, from construction to oil & gas. Nearly by definition, the power supply of these – often large – camps is a challenge, as local utilities are typically not available or not sized to meet the sudden increase in demand.
Consequently most large camps run on diesel generators, adding significant costs & environmental impacts to the camps’ operation. Enerwhere’s solar-diesel hybrid systems are available on a purchase, rental or long-term lease basis and can significantly reduce the fuel consumption and financial burden of operating a camp.
Adding renewable energy to mining power grids driven by conventional diesel generators reduces operating costs and thereby helps mining companies weather adverse events like load shedding and falls in commodity prices. By fixing energy costs at their currently low level, Enerwhere’s solar solutions will also increase profitability during the next upturn in the commodity cycle.
Based on its proprietary, transportable solar generator, Enerwhere can offer power for everything from early-stage exploration camps all the way up to multi-MW systems to power full-scale production facilities. Depending on the size and shape of the load curve, solar shares up to 40% can be achieved with solar-diesel hybrid systems. If required, battery storage can be included for peak shaving and frequency regulation, thereby further increasing system stability and reliability.
Oil & Gas
Enerwhere provides a range of solar-diesel, solar-gas and solar-battery hybrid power solutions suitable for remote operations like exploration camps, wellhead equipment, drilling rigs and gas-liquid separation facilities.
Our modular, containerised systems are easy to deploy to even the remotest locations and our robust design is proven in the Middle East’s harshest desert & marine environments. Our solar generators are designed to be re-deployed to multiple projects with ease thus permitting maximum use of the asset over time.
Islands offer fundamental challenges for any energy supply, as the cost of running a power line or even supplying fuel to local generators are often several times what the same would cost on the mainland. For this reason energy tends to be supplied by small, relatively inefficient diesel generators at very high costs.
Today, Enerwhere’s solar-diesel and solar-battery hybrid systems offer an excellent solution to reducing the fuel consumption, cost and environmental footprint of these generators. Enerwhere has installed multiple solar mini-grids on islands, ranging from single-unit (25 kW) installations for a small island construction site up to multi-MW installations to power a large camp hosting up to 20,000 people.
Enerwhere has tailored solar-diesel and solar-only / direct drive power solutions suitable for water pumping & irrigation, as well as cold-storage and related food-processing facilities.
Our modular, ballasted systems are rugged, have no moving parts, and can be deployed to non-productive land in the vicinity of water pumping or processing facilities, thereby increasing availability and throughput of existing equipment while eliminating the fuel and maintenance costs of conventional diesel generators.
