 Reflecting the UAE leadership’s vision of establishing a green economy, and in line with du’s efforts towards sustainability, the telecommunications company has announced that it will add around 70 new turnkey Genset Efficiency Solutions to its mobile network, provided by Heliocentris, the experts in energy efficiency and clean energy solutions. 

du has decided to convert all possible off-grid sites to smart hybrid power solutions with the deployment of Heliocentris’s solution. This is in direct support of the UAE Government’s strategy towards sustainable energy, and the national objective to reduce diesel consumption and CO2 emission by 50%.

Heliocentris' solutions have run successfully in 137 of du’s base transceiver station (BTS) sites for more than one year, and have fulfilled the telecom’s high expectations in terms of energy savings and reliability. In light of this, the company will upgrade even more sites to include Heliocentris' technology.

Heliocentris’ Genset Efficiency solutions have helped du significantly in its efforts to go green. They have allowed for a reduction in diesel fuel consumption of more than 1.1 million litres, and a reduction in CO2 emissions of more than 2,500 tons over the course of 2012.

With the continued implementation of these solutions, du expects a yearly saving in fuel consumption of more than 3 million litres and reduction in CO2 emissions of more than 12,000 tonnes, by end of 2014.

Saleem Al Balooshi, Executive Vice President, Customer Operations and acting Executive Vice President, Network Development and Operations, du, said: “The installation of Heliocentris’ solutions into our BTS sites has led to a massive improvement in our environmental impact. This is in line with our strategy to improve sustainability within our company, and to promote sustainable practices to our community. Our achievements so far support the UAE leadership’s desire to establish our country as a leader in sustainability, and we are proud to be in a position to install further Heliocentris solutions in order to more fully support this great vision.”

Michael Kutschenreuter, General Manager of Heliocentris Energy Solutions AG, said: “du’s order of new turnkey Genset Efficiency Solutions further endorses Heliocentris’ energy efficiency solutions as proven and best in class to meet and exceed our customer’s requirements. We are proud to continuously be the partner of choice for du's efforts to drive for more and more eco-friendly and state of the art energy solutions for its BTS operations.”

The Heliocentris smart hybrid solution involves deep cycling batteries and a smart Energy Manager, which cycles the site’s load between generator and batteries, thereby reducing the run time of the diesel-powered generator significantly. 

The conversion project will be managed by Heliocentris Energy FZE, located in Silicon Oasis, Dubai, with local staff including Sales, Solution Engineering and Project Management. This underlines the importance of the Middle East Africa region as a growth driver and is at the same time a further sign of Heliocentris' strong commitment to this region.
