Tenesol has delivered its 750th off-grid solar system to the oil and gas industry in the Middle East. Since 2004, Tenesol has worked with oil and gas operators to provide solar solutions for the industry’s need for power in isolated locations.

“Providing sustainable energy solutions for off-grid equipment is now a major part of the oil and gas industry,” said Jacques Mathan, export sales manager at Tenesol. “As oil prices rise and climate change continues, the need for alternative energy solutions increases. The suitability of solar energy’s capabilities in the oil and gas industry, combined with the Middle East’s ideal climate, means this is a fast expanding market.”

Tenesol’s systems are used for a range of activities such as powering security equipment, wellhead systems for cathodic protection, monitoring equipment and control systems along pipelines. The individual systems range in size from just 2kWp to much larger 372kWp systems.
