Morningstar Corporation’s Advanced Solar Technology Helps Oil and Gas Production Facilities Reduce Carbon Emissions
NEWTOWN, Pennsylvania., September 20, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Morningstar Corporation today announced its TriStar™ Solar charge controllers are installed in a group of solar-plus-energy storage systems for major oil companies around the world. The advanced technology of TriStar controllers was selected because it provides the highest level of performance, safety and reliability for these types of mission critical solar power systems. As ESG (environment, social and governance) becomes an increasingly common concern for CEOs and carbon emissions mandates increase around the world, oil and gas companies are finding ways to reduce their footprint. carbon. Solar power generation systems provide a reliable and efficient power source for the remote and often harsh conditions of petroleum production facilities. Solar and storage systems keep production on-line while dramatically reducing facility carbon emissions.
“As oil production facilities look to switch to solar power, Morningstar’s long-standing global track record assures companies that we are a partner they can count on,” commented Lee gordon, President and Founder, Morningstar Company.
EcoSol Energy has installed solar-plus-storage systems on oil fields in Kuwait to power the lighting systems that ensure the safe and efficient operation of installations. ScotlandJCE Energy has designed, engineered and tested solar and storage systems that power a range of applications and devices on offshore wellhead platforms from the North Sea to the Java Sea. Orga BV has equipped wellhead platforms with solar storage and storage in the Gulf of Thailand focusing on manufacturing highly reliable and compact systems to deliver overall cost savings to customers. Swift Energy has completed solar and storage system installations to power remote data collection on the wellheads of the Pemanis offshore project Sarawak in East Malaysia. All systems have been installed with Morningstar Corporation controllers suitable or certified for hazardous area use. Morningstar’s newest solar chargers are Hazardous Location certified in North America (with UL / CSA) and internationally /Europe (with IECEx / ATEX).
Subject to harsh conditions and hazardous operations, many brands of charge controllers require manual reset. Sending teams to remote platforms for a manual restart is dangerous and expensive work. Remco Vonk, General manager Asia & Pacific, Orga BV commented: “The high efficiency nature of Morningstar products is particularly suited to our needs. They are compact and operate under the high temperature conditions encountered when incorporated into our explosion proof control systems installed in certified enclosures. More importantly, they have proven to be “fit and forgetful”. With Morningstar, we know we won’t have to go back for expensive service calls. ”
Solar + storage systems provide energy for oil production, rig and remote facility operations. The systems reduce the carbon footprint of oil and gas facilities and reduce long-term energy costs while providing reliable power to keep operations online, safe and productive.
