Solar-powered protective cabin for construction workers
The construction company Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) has developed the world's first 100 percent solar-powered protective cabin for construction workers.
PV modules supply electricity during the day. In the evening hours, the electricity comes from a TESVOLT battery storage system.
CCC implements construction projects in North Africa and the Middle East, so the cabin not only provides employees with a place for their office work, but also protects them from the high temperatures of the day. If the temperature outside is 50°C, the cabin offers a pleasant 25°C - this requires only six hours of sunlight per day.
The solar-powered protective cabin from CCC and TESVOLT was awarded the Environmental Award 2018 by the International Pipe Line & Offshore Contractors Association.
