Eltek Valere Announces Reaching Milestone of 150,000 High Efficiency Power Modules ShippedMarket Acceptance of HE Rectifier Modules Has Eliminated Tens of Thousands of Tons of CO2 and Saved Carriers Millions of Dollars Annually
DRAMMEN, NORWAY – Sept. 1, 2010 – Eltek Valere, the world leader in high efficiency power systems, today announced that its flagship Flatpack2 high efficiency (HE) rectifier product line has reached a milestone of 150,000 units shipped, thus significantly impacting the environmental effort to lower the power consumption of global telecommunications operations as well as the emission of CO2 into the atmosphere.
The company estimates that the deployment of 150,000 Flatpack2 HE units has cut close to 120 million kilowatt hours in wasted electricity, reducing CO2 emissions by approximately 80,000 tons and is currently saving carriers more than $12 million in power related operating expense annually.
The Flatpack2 HE family of power rectifiers is used in telecom applications around the world. They set a new industry standard of 96.5 percent efficiency that cuts by half the power that is wasted due to the AC-to-DC conversion process.
Eighty percent of all energy consumed by the telecom industry goes through DC power equipment supplied by Eltek Valere and its main competitors. Recognizing the need to help carriers reduce their impact on the environment, Eltek Valere began in 2008 to convert its entire rectifier line to high efficiency power and today has green HE solutions for every telecommunications application, while the rest of the industry is just now addressing this challenge.
“Reaching this landmark of 150,000 high efficiency rectifiers sold is a significant achievement supporting our world leadership role in green power, and has set an example other power suppliers are now following,” said Morten Schoyen, CMO of Eltek Valere. “In addition, the deployment of these rectifiers contributes significantly toward lowering the world’s power consumption by helping carriers implement alternative power into their networks. This has cut their energy costs and encouraged them to be environmentally friendly as well. The success of the Eltek Valere HE rectifier product line is a win for both our customers and the environment.”
