TES.POD® arrives in Dubai

The Azelio TES.POD® has arrived on site at the MBR Solar Park in Dubai. With preparations underway for the unit's final installation (following a 7,500-mile journey that began in Uddevalla, Sweden) the project is beginning to take shape.

"Today the world gets a first glimpse of the TES.POD's arrival in Dubai," said Azelio's VP Operations Peter Gabrielsson, "and I am delighted to share these images with you this morning. The pandemic has of course created a testing environment on many fronts but the progress made by the team has been remarkable. This has truly been a collaborative effort from the whole company, as well as from our suppliers, partners and contractors, and we are all very exited about seeing the TES.POD in action at the MBR Solar Park soon."

The long-duration storage unit was lifted onto its final location where it will provide on demand renewable electrity to the Visitors' Centre at Phase 4 of the MBR Solar Park. The newly contrusted vistor's centre will welcome guests, dignatories, and media to the latest phase of the park that has already attracted considerable global attention for its size (77km2) and generating capacity (1GW).

"We are delighted with the progress the team has made so far. This has been a large effort from multiple teams in both Sweden and on the ground here in Dubai and we couldn't be happier with how the project is looking at the moment," says Fredrik Lisnell, Delivery Manager at Azelio.

The TES.POD secures around-the-clock clean power for the visitor center, as a distributed sustainable baseload.

Decarbonising the mining sector

As one of the world's most energy-intensive industries, mining has long been ripe for a renewable energy transformation. Falling renewable energy costs, coupled with an increased determination to address environmental impacts, has led to a significant transformation in the way mine operators approach energy generation, consumption, and management. With the sector prepared to rethink the adoption of renewables into its energy mix, is mining the latest sector on the cusp of a green energy revolution?
