Aldabra-Atoll

Cable for protecting the Aldabra Atoll

Cable for hybrid system comprising photovoltaics and a diesel engine

Azure-blue water, palm trees, sunshine and a fascinating ecological system with 97 species of birds and the famous Aldabra giant tortoise: the necessity of protecting the biodiversity of the Aldabra Atoll, part of the Seychelles, was already recognised in 1982 by UNESCO and consequently declared as a World Cultural Heritage site. Since then, the Seychelles Island Foundation (SIF) has been taking care of the preservation of this wonderful atoll. To achieve sustainable research, a hybrid system for power supply comprising photovoltaics and a diesel engine was installed in October 2011.
