Ooredoo Kuwait, a trailblazer in the ICT sector and a staunch advocate for innovation has reshaped the industry landscape with the introduction of solar hybrid-powered signal boosters. Deployed earlier this year in selected rural locations across Kuwait’s mainland and islands, this pioneering trial reflects Ooredoo’s commitment to embracing eco-friendly solutions and reducing reliance on traditional diesel generators.
The strategic trial, featuring solar hybrid cell signal boosters, aims to address environmental concerns by significantly lowering carbon emissions and operational costs. Solar energy, renowned for its eco-friendly attributes and economic viability, emerges as a key player in this initiative, demonstrating its effectiveness and sustainability.
Carefully chosen trial locations include Wafra Road, Failka Island, Subiya, and Abdali Road, providing a diverse range of environments—from rural roads to picturesque islands—to assess the performance of solar hybrid signal boosters. This initiative aligns seamlessly with Ooredoo Kuwait’s steadfast commitment to environmental sustainability and the continuous reduction of its carbon footprint.
The decision to test solar systems as an alternative to diesel generators marks a significant leap toward a more environmentally responsible and economically efficient approach to powering the telecom network. Ooredoo Kuwait’s adoption of solar hybrid power serves as a pilot program to evaluate the efficiency and feasibility of alternative energy sources for its telecom infrastructure.
Ooredoo Kuwait envisions that the outcomes of this initiative will chart the course for a greener and more cost-effective future in the telecommunications industry. This underscores the company’s unwavering commitment to championing sustainable practices and innovation within the sector, setting a precedent for environmentally conscious initiatives in the region.
