Enabling Monitoring and Control in Remote Oil Fields

Year: 2010
Product: SunKeeperTM controllers
Partners include: SunWize

It may sound ironic, but solar power has a significant role in the oil and gas industry, largely due to the remote locations of most drilling operations. The variety of energy needs involved in oil and mining, including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and telemetry, make solar energy a cost- effective way to provide power to production sites.

SunWize provides ruggedly designed remote power systems to ensure safety and efficiency while minimizing operation and maintenance costs. SunWize chose Morningstar’s SunKeeper controller for many of its sites because it can withstand the harsh environments of many drilling locations.
