Clear Blue - Parallel Wireless Partnership Expands with Three Additional Orders for Smart Off-Grid Power
The four phases of the project represent an estimated 5-year Lifetime Contract Value of more than 4 million CAD.
November 14, 2022, Toronto ON – Clear Blue Technologies International Inc. (“Clear Blue”) (TSXV:CBLU) (FRA:0YA) (OTCQB: CBUTF), the Smart Off-Grid™ Company, is pleased to provide the following corporate update on its projects with Parallel Wireless, the leading U.S.-based O-RAN compliant, Open RAN company, enabling ALL Gs, first announced on June 23, 2021:
- Following a successful Phase 1 deployment of Clear Blue’s Smart Off-Grid power, two additional phases were procured and shipped in 2021 and 2022;
- A fourth phase was awarded on November 9th, 2022 and is planned for deployment in 2023, which will bring the total number of sites to 147;
- The 5-year lifetime contract value (LCV) for the four phases is estimated to exceed $4 million CAD.
Together, Clear Blue’s Smart Off-Grid power technology and Parallel Wireless’s Open RAN All G technology deliver a high-performance, cost-effective telecommunications solution for major telecom operators in Africa. The majority of the project consists of large backhaul transmission and medium-sized cell tower systems. The project is entirely powered through either grid-solar hybrid systems or solar-only solutions. There are no gas generators deployed on any sites across the network.
“Recent global events have accelerated the need for MNOs and Tower operators to migrate their sites away from diesel generators,” said Miriam Tuerk, CEO of Clear Blue. “In addition to the negative climate impact of gas generators, the exponential increase in cost for the diesel generator operational model is applying significant pressure on the bottom line of MNOs and tower operators. This project demonstrates that with Open RANs lower power consumption, along with Clear Blue’s Smart Off-Grid solutions, major telecom systems across Africa can reliably and effectively operate without the need for expensive and dirty gas generators.”
