Flexenclosure secures order for its eSite hybrid power solution from Myanmar

Flexenclosure has received another order for its green eSite hybrid power solution to be deployed in Myanmar, this time from local fibre infrastructure providerGolden 11.

Flexenclosure is a designer and manufacturer of prefabricated data centre buildings and intelligent power management systems for the ICT industry. Its eSite solution has already been installed at more than 1,200 sites across Myanmar as part of the country’s on-going mobile network rollout.  The company recently announced an eSite order from OCK Group for deployment in Myanmar, making Golden 11 Flexenclosure’s fifth customer in the country.

Myanmar Golden 11 Investment International Co. Ltd. constructs fibre optic networks, towers and data exchange facilities nationwide in Myanmar. They will use the eSites to power and integrate fibre transmission nodes around the country. As such the agreement is ground breaking, as it is Flexenclosure’s first ever eSite order for such applications anywhere.

eSite is a hybrid power system for base station sites in areas where grid power is either unreliable or unavailable.  Using any available combination of battery, grid, renewable and genset power sources, eSite is designed to support 24/7 network uptime and cuts diesel-related costs and CO2 emissions by up to 90 percent.  eSite is also designed to be used in a shared tower environment where it can provide power to several mobile telecommunications base stations.

“This deal with Golden 11 opens up an exciting new segment for eSite” said David King, CEO, Flexenclosure.  “Our traditional towerco customers are not the only ones who need reliable power in areas where there is none, and we expect to see significant new market opportunities opening up for eSite in the coming months and years.”

Clement Larroque, Director of Service Delivery at Myanmar Golden 11, added that in the remote areas of Myanmar grid power must be complemented with innovative power solutions to ensure resilience and permanence of telecommunication services. This required a tried and tested solution to ensure consistent power for Golden 11’s network transmission nodes. The company chose Flexenclosure because of its strong local team in place and eSite’s proven reputation in the Myanmar market.

A special feature of the eSites Flexenclosure is providing for Golden 11, is dedicated space within the cabinet for the customer to install its own fibre transmission equipment.  Not only does this provide the customer equipment with protection from both the elements and from possible tampering, it also enables dual equipment functionality (power and data) within a single footprint – an important benefit, especially in space-constrained deployments.

The eSites will be constructed at Flexenclosure’s factory in Sweden and delivered and deployed in Myanmar later this year.
