Valen Power remote energy storage
Valen Power was engaged in 2020 by a state rail provider to support them in an energy storage solution for remote radio sites.
Scope and challenges
The client wanted to expand its existing radio network; however, there was no access to mains power at several of the proposed radio network sites. This meant the client needed to look for a reliable off-grid energy solution.
The preference was a system without ground penetration to minimise the installation time required onsite. Additional space also needed to be factored in to give Valen Power’s client the ability to add to the system as the need expanded. The client had a number of these sites, all with slightly different load profiles, so each site needed individual consideration to get the best outcome.
Valen went to the drawing board bearing in mind the client’s expectations and designed three different modular systems to cover the requirements of the various site load profiles.
As the client required site installation time to be minimised, the Valen Design Team came up with a complete package including all components, from pre-cast footings, solar frame, panels that could be installed by one person safely, lithium batteries, solar regulator, DC distribution panel and enclosure.
Components were all pre-assembled where feasible, again to minimise time spent onsite. Valen organised all project components to be supplied directly to the client’s sites.
Valen designed and engineered a customised solution to fit the client’s communication project scope covering all important aspects. These systems were then delivered directly to the individual sites on time.
The client was able to install these complete packaged solar off-grid systems within a reduced time frame onsite. Valen engaged and supported the client through the installation and maintenance phase of these off-grid energy systems.
