Toronto, Ontario Canada (PressExposure) January 10, 2012 -- After conducting research specific to the Carbon Credit market over the past year and recognizing the industry's predominance and significance in Europe, Solamon Energy Corp is proud to welcome Thijs Boonen to its executive team and confirm his appointment to the position of Associate Vice President, Europe. According to Solamon CEO Graeme Boyce, Boonen will report to Corey Keegan effective immediately, and assist to develop Central America's largest solar farm in Nicaragua while, with other Solamon executives, review and explore additional solar opportunities across North Africa and the Middle East, as well as Asia.
An intrepid traveler, Boonen, who met his wife in Central America last year, is now located in Antwerpen, Belgium, nearby to the European Union offices in Brussels. Boonen is fluent in several languages and a skilled communicator. "I have worked professionally with Thijs in the past and am highly optimistic about working with him now," says Keegan, Solamon SVP, who recommended Boonen. "Together, we have now launched an ambitious program with airports in tropical regions augmenting Solamon's successful beginnings in the Caribbean.
"Thijs always brings a tremendous amount of energy and diligence to his work," Keegan adds, "and his initial efforts introducing the critical aspect of carbon credits have received very positive responses in a very short period of time."
Solamon provides a fully managed solution for its Apollo Acre, a turnkey process from beginning to end including site inspections, project design and development, as well as addressing requisite environmental and local permitting, 3rd party engineering, procurement and construction, as well as system testing and eventual commissioning, security and maintenance.
The company is excited to deliver turnkey power plants using renewable solar energy as a resource to Caribbean and Central American countries, and develop mutually beneficial and long-term relationships around the world. "It's no secret, our executives are certainly looking for local partners to manage each new Apollo Acre array," Boyce continues. "However, our partners must also be willing to establish and operate a suitable post-implementation maintenance program, especially in collaboration with government agencies who've offered to provide standards and training certification criteria especially in the growing Carbon Credit market."
Solamon typically offers a ground-mounted solar array of integrated photovoltaic cells over 5 acre packages of land, which is called the Apollo Acre. The company now also designs and installs custom solutions with local partners to provide roof-mounted and parking lot systems that could be easily augmented by micro wind turbine technology and other innovative features.
About Solamon: Solamon Energy Corp. sells integrated arrays of ground-mounted and rooftop photovoltaic cells. These solar power plants are connected by cable to varied transmission equipment, including converters, inverters and batteries, utilizing 5 acres of land per unit; each unit is called an Apollo Acre. Additionally, it is expected the company's business activities will spin-off many jobs locally, given engineering requirements, construction, unit commissioning and subsequent maintenance.
