Battery Thefts In Remote Telecoms Sites (7K€ in prizes)


Help us to design a new solution to prevent battery thefts in remote telecoms sites

Batteries and electronic equipment are installed in different kind of shelters that may be made in concrete, fiberglass or metal. The strings are arranged on racks, usually installed inside the shelter where air conditioning is present in order to ensure optimal lifetime of batteries.

But the use of the actual battery solution presents a series of related problems…

  • Temperature in the site has to be controlled in order to ensure battery lifetime.
  • Batteries are commonly stolen and have to be replaced.
  • Batteries are not usually connected to a remote alarm system so the operator does not know the batteries have been stolen until the next power grid outage occurs.
  • An important part of the limited space available in the shelters has to be dedicated to batteries, reducing space available for technical equipment.ennomotive challenge batteries
