As part of its continued efforts to adopt green solutions and achieve sustainability in the UAE, du has announced its plan to increase the number of Genset Efficiency CO2 emission-reducing, turnkey energy management systems and monitoring solutions in its mobile base stations.

The announcement was made during GITEX Technology Week 2012 and coincides with du’s support of the upcoming World Energy Forum as a lead sponsor.

Present at the announcement was Farid Faraidooni, Chief Commercial Officer, du and Ayad Abul-Ella, CEO, Heliocentris, accompanied by Jasem Al Marzouki, Senior Director, Civil and Electromechanical, du, and Michael Kutschenreuter, General Manager Middle East and Africa, Heliocentris.

Ever since the signing of the initial agreement with Heliocentris to implement Genset Efficiency solutions, du has made significant strides in its efforts to go green. Some of its achievements using Genset Efficiency include:

• 60% savings in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions;
• 70% savings in generator running hours and consequent reduction in maintenance requirements and noise pollution;
• Reduction in fuel consumption by 420,000 litres and reduction in CO2 emissions by 1,050 tonnes, from December 2011 to August 2012.

With the continued implementation of the green solutions, du expects a saving in fuel consumption of 6.8 million litres and reduction in CO2 emissions by 17,000 tonnes by end of 2014.

“We have selected Heliocentris for its experience in the field and proven track results. Sustainability is a cornerstone of our business strategy, and we are proud to have achieved reductions of 60% in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions from the BTS solutions installed so far. Today we are expanding the number of green solutions in our network to contribute to the UAE leadership’s vision of a green economy,” said Faraidooni.

Abul-Ella added, “The UAE is well-known for adopting the latest technology, especially green technology. We believe this collaboration with du is a testament of the reliability and effectiveness of our green energy solutions for telecoms. We are committed to extending the best solutions and support to du, to help the company achieve its sustainability goals.”

The Genset Efficiency solution controls the operation of mobile base stations’ diesel generators. An automotive-style hybridization of the diesel genset, with a battery in combination with intelligent energy management, increases efficiency and considerably reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by at least 50%. In addition, the Energy Manager increases the transparency of operational tasks by monitoring the network infrastructure, and thus decreasing downtime of the towers as well as maintenance efforts.

This project is managed by the Heliocentris branch office (P21), located in Silicon Oasis, Dubai, which was launched at the end of 2011 to cater for the company’s growing operations in the Middle East and Africa. This underlines the importance of the region as a growth driver and is at the same time a further sign of Heliocentris’ strong commitment to this region.
