We’re thrilled to announce that the team at Ascot received the award for Green Initiative of the Year as part of the Tower Xchange Industry Awards 2016.
The Awards, which have run for over four years, are dedicated to tracking and covering excellence in telecom towers. The awards were presented at this year’s TowerXchange Meetup Africa & Middle East at the Sandton Convention Centre.
Over the past few months, a number of nominations were received and shortlisted, with Ascot’s nomination falling within the ‘Green initiative of the Year’ category. TowerXchange stated on their website that they would value each submission based on the real life deployment examples carried out at a significant scale, and delivered tangible commercial benefits to the key parties involved. We were honoured to be accompanied by six esteemed corporations within the category, including Huawei and Apollo Solar, Camusat and Orange.
The comments from the panel of judges included recognition of our work as a project of unprecedented scale in Africa. The project involved the replacement of 2,400 diesel generators at IHS sites with solar-hybrid systems, yielding a 76% carbon footprint.
A job well done to everyone involved; we’re extremely proud of this achievement.
Ascot won Tower Xchange Award
