BTS are critical components of any mobile phone network because they allow the user to access the network. The transmission of voice and data and the widespread diffusion of wireless services require little power, but in a continuous and reliable way.
Coelmo developed several high-performance solutions for BTS sites, from the most traditional up to Full Hybrid Systems that use alternative energy sources, batteries storage systems and DC variable speed Generating Sets that drastically reduce the environmental impact in terms of emissions. Coelmo is able to offer the ideal solution for all environmental conditions and usage, minimizing investment costs (CapEx) and optimizing the operating expenses (OpEx).

It is mandatory to  avoid a power cut in telecommunications that can be caused by main failure or, by an unstable power supply.

Traditional Solution: Back-up AC Generating Set
In this case  the load is usually connected to the mains. Following a voltage or frequency error, a start signal is sent to the generator  after the set delay.  When the generator voltage is within programmed limits, the load is connected to the generator until the mains line reverts to standard values. At this time the load is transferred back and the generator is kept in operation without load for a suitably set time to allow it to cool down.


Variable Speed DC Generating Set + Batteries
The mains usually powers the load and keeps the batteries charged at the same time. As long as a mains failure occurs, the deep cycle battery bank feeds the load. IntegraTel® starts up the emergency
Generating Set start in case the mains black out lasts long enough that the batteries charge drops below a fixed threshold. The
Generating Set provides power both to the load and to charge the batteries. It will be stopped by IntegraTel® once the batteries are fully recharged. This working principle increases the entire systems efficiency allowing sensible savings both in operating costs and in
carbon footprint.


In order to ensure a suitable coverage, BTS are often placed in sites where no mains is available.

Traditional Solution: Dual Generating Set
In this case two generators are simultaneously controlled,  each with a start-stop and feedback signal. In this application a rotation between generators can be programmed, i.e. the load can be shifted from one to the other at regular intervals, with the purpose of sharing out the generator work equally. It is also possible to set the time of day when rotation shall occur, so that load supply cut-off occurs at a specific time. In case of a problem on either generator, the load is shifted to the one in stand-by.


Variable Speed DC Generating Set + Batteries + Solar Panels
The system consists of Solar Panels, a deep-cycle Battery Bank, a Variable Speed DC Generating Set and IntegraTel®. During the day, the solar panels provide power to the load and recharge the batteries. When the power coming from the solar panels is not enough, IntegraTel makes the batteries add the missing power to properly feed the load thanks to the introduction of the innovative “AND” operating princible. If the battery charge level drops below a fixed level, IntegraTel® starts the generator, which provides power to the load and charges the batteries too. When the batteries are fully recharged, IntegraTel® stops the Generating Set. Such a working principle increases the entire system efficiency allowing sensible savings both in operating costs and in carbon footprint.

Ermes® (Electronic Remote Monitor for Energy Systems) allows the remote management and control of COELMO generators together with the constant observation of the state of all energy sources present in Hybrid and Full Hybrid solutions.

ERMES monitors all the parameters of operation of the generators together with the energy flows between the various sources of hybrid solutions. The statistical analysis of the collected data together with the ability to communicate in real time any operating faults of the station, allows the rationalization of the interventions on the remote sites with a drastic reduction in maintenance costs.

Coelmo recommends ENI lubricants

Business continuity, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is essential when managing telephone networks and data centers, upon which thousands of users rely for their communications. Minimal interruption would imply heavy losses and customer dissatisfaction.

The high reliability, strong robustness and revolutionary technology of Coelmo systems avoids the risks arising from the power failure of the infrastructure and databases.

This is the reason why the largest telecom operators in the world rely on Coelmo Generating sets for power and backup systems.
