Air Synergy seals 'smart' US deal
Air Synergy, an Irish clean tech firm, has broken into the US market with the installation of 'intelligent smart poles' in New York and Chicago.
The patented smart pole is a hybrid pole that uses wind and solar power to charge itself off-grid. The result is reduced electricity and installation costs with no need for trenching or laying down cables to power lights. Air Synergy has partnered with Air Synergy in the venture.
Air Synergy CEO Gerry Butler said that the move represented a "major boost" for the company in an important growth market.
"Our sales in the US have gone extremely well. The data has demonstrated our technology has been very effective and we have just received an order for a further 90 intelligent smart poles," Mr Butler said.
The company - which is based in Longford and Dublin - has installed the smart poles in the Breezy Point Municipality, New York, Washington Irving Intermediate School, New York, Dobbs Ferry High School, New York and Chicago Institute of Technology.
Closer to home Air Synergy has renewable energy units installed at various locations in Ireland, most recently at the Lidl store in Drogheda, and also as a monitoring application for a site for JJ Rhatigan in Donabate Dublin. The company also has installations in a number of locations in Germany.
