Company news:


FibraLink Jamaica Ltd. operates a new state of the art sub-marine fiber optic communications network between Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas and Florida. The network of remote repeater stations in hard to reach locations poses special challenges for ensuring a reliable power supply.

“Hurricanes, storms and frequent power outages require us to equip all of the repeater stations with dual emergency generators. The gensets have experienced numerous problems with accumulating water and sediments in the stored fuel, and clogged filters have led to engine shutdown.” stated Gordon Jones; Project Manager for Cable Bahamas/Fibralink. “Algae-X offered a great solution to prevent these failures. We immediately ordered ten STS 5000 Automatic Fuel Filtration systems for our new facilities. These systems ensure that all of our stored fuel is pristine, dry and stable. The systems and their alarms are centrally monitored through our Network Operations Centers in Miami, Kingston and Nassau. Too many network groups overlook the hidden danger of bad fuel quality putting their backup power at risk.”

Algae-X designs and manufactures innovative products & systems that optimize fuel quality, ensuring reliable engine operation. The STS 5000 Automatic Fuel Filtration systems are primarily used on fuel storage tanks for emergency backup generators in data centers, telecommunications, hospitals, banks, and casinos – any facility that relies on backup power to stay in business.
