CCC Goes Off-Grid – Global Construction Company Creates World-First 100% 24-Hour Solar-Powered Portable Cabin for the Industry


ATHENS, Greece, July 30, 2018 

The world’s first 100% solar-powered 24-hour off-grid mobile cabin has been successfully piloted for the construction workforce by global leader Consolidated Contractors Company.

Partnering with German energy storage experts Tesvolt and working in accordance with the agenda set by the UN’s General Assembly, CCC developed the world-first off-grid 100% solar-powered 24-hour office and accommodation cabin – which meets day and night energy demands, maintaining a room temperature of 25[o]C, considering a peak outside ambient temperature of 50[o] C (assuming a minimum of 6 hours direct sunlight per day).

PV panels supply power during daytime and the excess generated power is fed into the battery storage to support the demand during the evening hours.

Consolidated Contractors Company Manager M.I.S. & Business Processes Re-engineering, Aref Boualwan, said the system could be constantly monitored, analysed and adjusted anytime online – from anywhere in the world.

“The majority of our personnel are positioned on sites across the MENA region, where average temperatures are always high. For this project, we wanted to focus on off-grid renewable energy systems for our workers day and night, which are the most appropriate due to geographical constraints and costs for grid extension,” Mr Boualwan said.

“A group of engineers with diversified technical backgrounds and subject matter experts, based in different locations around the world, developed the off-grid mobile cabin. The energy system was designed, engineered, constructed, tested, and commissioned following the latest codes and IEC Standards.

“CCC and Tesvolt are proud of this collaboration, and believe that this success story represents a great foundation for the future strategic partnership of both companies.”

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
