Carmanah Receives Order for 11 of its Proprietary Modular Solar Power Systems for Pacific Rim Mines

Tuesday, September 20, 2005

Carmanah has received an order for 11 units of its proprietary 50-watt MAPPS (Modular Autonomous Photovoltaic Power Supply) systems from a US solar systems integrator specializing in complete Global Positioning System (GPS) solutions and life safety monitoring packages. These MAPPS systems will be installed at various remote mining facilities in the Pacific Rim Region of the United States.

For remote surface mining operations, it is paramount to have reliable telemetry equipment that monitors earth movement. The miners depend on this equipment for detection of the seismic waves that could potentially cause a landslide and result in serious injuries or loss of life.

Solar power is the best solution to safely and reliably generate electricity to power remote telemetry systems. Carmanah's MAPPS system is the only complete stand-alone solar electric system available that is specifically designed for remote industrial applications.

Thousands of Carmanah MAPPS systems have been deployed worldwide over the past 15 years. These systems are field-proven to endure the extremely harsh environments found at many remote locations. In fact, Carmanah's MAPPS systems can be approved for Class I, DIV. II hazardous locations (UL Pending).

As Carmanah's MAPPS Systems are shipped as complete, easy-to-assemble kits, they can be installed quickly with minimal technical expertise.
