American Resource and Energy Introduces Cost-Saving Structures and Power Systems for Remote Telecom Sites

Company to showcase innovations at CTIA 2013 in Las Vegas this month


CTIA WIRELESS 2013

ST. PAUL, Minn.--The high costs of developing and powering remote tower sites are no longer a barrier to mobile phone penetration in rural, remote, or off-grid locations, thanks to American Resource and Energy, a global supplier of telecom structures. The company, which has supplied thousands of wind towers worldwide, is unveiling a set of self-raising monopole towers, concrete-free foundations and solar power systems that slash installation and operation expenses and promise to accelerate mobile phone and internet adoption in less connected locations.

American Resource and Energy will unveil the products at CTIA 2013, a mobile industry convention and expo, May 21-23, 2013 at the Sands in Las Vegas, exhibit hall booth 2961.

"These systems are uniquely suited to the challenges of remote sites," said Dion Johnson, CEO of American Resource and Energy. "There's no need to bring in concrete or heavy equipment. A foundation and tower can go up on the same day, with no waiting for cure time. That makes it faster and more affordable. In addition, our solar arrays and hybrid power systems cut diesel use, saving costs year after year."

The company's chief telecom innovations include:

*Concrete-free foundations: These patent-pending systems are assembled on-site with basic tools, and can also be disassembled and reused elsewhere. Local rocks, gravel or backfilled soil serve as ballast, and no excavation is required.

*Self-raising monopole towers: A compact motorized device raises the tower from its base, eliminating the need for cranes or heavy equipment.

*Solar power systems: Mounted to the tower or as a separate, free-standing structure, the solar systems (up to 10 kilowatt) reduce or eliminate diesel reliance. Wind-solar-diesel hybrid systems are also available.

Parker Hannifin Biogas Dehumidification System

Parker Hannifin Biogas Dehumidification System

The selection of effective biogas treatment equipment is important, both in optimizing the cogeneration of electrical and thermal energy, making the most of the available renewable energy, and reducing energy consumption and operating. Parker's solution is to dry the gas, firstly by cooling using a water-cooled heat exchanger working with an air-cooled water chiller and secondly, by removing the condensed water with a cyclonic water separator. The cooled gas can then be reheated to reduce the relative humidity and thus meet the technical demands of gas engines, turbines and other downstream equipment.
