Australian Company Solar Powers Mobile Phone Network in Oman: Nice pictures. Similar story on the company's site with a South Pacific Island satellite station: "Tokelau is a New Zealand dependency situated about 10 degrees south of the equator in the South Pacific, approximately 400km North of Western Samoa. The 3 main islands in the group comprise of Atafu, Fakaofo and Nukunonu. The location of Tokelau, remote even by South Pacific island standards, has meant that the local Government has had to rely on diesel generator sets for the provision of power, which presents big problems due to irregular shipping and handling of diesel fuel in drums through the shallow waters. The Telecommunication Tokelau Corporation (Tele Tok) recently turned to Solar Sales Pty. Ltd. for expanding their already existing solar power installations on all 3 islands. " Solar Sales is located near Perth, Australia. 10:37:29 AM
