Australian company to export energy solutions to Samoa

Granite Power has announced it has entered into a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA) with The Samoan Electric Power Corporation (EPC) for the installation and management of the world’s best recycling technology for the generation of renewable and sustainable energy.

Granite Power is an Australian power technology company delivering renewable and sustainable electricity generation solutions, principally to remote and off-grid locations.

It achieves this electricity generation through a technologically advanced and efficient recycling system that harnesses low temperature (50-400°C) waste heat from existing power platforms and through advanced solar and geothermal harvesting.

Granite Power’s innovative technology, known as GRANEX, was designed and built in Australia in partnership with University of Newcastle and has global patent protection.

This advanced technology also enables Granite Power’s clients to substantially reduce exhaust emissions per MWh, which is good news for the environment.

“Remote and off-grid entities are continually looking at methodologies to improve their carbon profile through renewable and sustainable energy production,” Granite Power CEO Stephen de Belle.

“But as always, continuity of power supply to meet their domestic and commercial needs is paramount.

“The agreement with the EPC will provide Samoan’s with a safe, environmental solution that increases their power output by recycling the heat of exhaust emissions from their current power generation.

“This is good news for the Samoan people and good news for the environment in reaching their commitments to established renewable energy targets.”

Granite Power Samoa will commence operations in Samoa in 2018, with full energy production capabilities expected to be on line late in the same year.
