Arctic Remote Power Units
From Remote Power Units
We have specialized in supplying equipment for outdoor installation and operation under Arctic conditions since we installed our first remote power units in Alaska 40 years ago. One of the most severe challenges in extreme Arctic conditions is the supply of continuous, reliable remote power for unattended stations that, in most cases, cannot be reached by technical staff for months at a time. Ormat’s Remote Power Solutions are uniquely designed to overtake these challenges ensuring utmost reliability and lifespan. Over 120 Ormat Integrated Remote Power Units have powered the RGVs of the Trans-Alaska pipeline since 1975 and still run today with minimal maintenance. Our solutions are designed for outdoor unattended operation under extreme cold weather conditions:
- From -60°C (-76°F) to +50°C (+122°F)
- Up to 100% humidity
- Wind speeds up to 160 km/hr (100 mph)
Ormat Remote Power Solutions for Arctic applications include a non-electric heating system (NEHS) uniquely designed for maintaining the temperature in equipment shelters at optimal values, assuring that batteries are maintained and telecommunications equipment work properly in the harshest of winter conditions. The NEHS utilize, in co-generation, unused heat from the OEC and provide the necessary heat to the equipment shelter.
With projects including some of the world's longest pipeline systems, our extensive experience enables our customers to considerably reduce project time schedules and gain the best fit solution.
