Supporting the power generation of Commercial & Industrial operations

Stable and reliable power generation,    even in challenging conditions

In Middle East and Asia, Commercial & Industrial players face specific challenges in power generation. Rough ambient conditions, such as high temperatures, dust, and scarce water resources, present a need for reliable solutions capable of working in such environments. Remote locations of power plants limit the access to power grid, which can affect the reliability and overall efficiency of the power plant. A reliable source of electricity is essential to maintain uninterrupted production schedules of Commercial & Industrial operators. 

Growing interest in decarbonising operations, along with an increasing share of renewable energy sources, presents another challenge. Integrating renewables increases the volatility of the power system. Solutions able to integrate different energy assets are needed to endure stable electricity output while reducing the levelised cost of energy.
