In the coming year we will continue to work on finding business and cooperation opportunities in the energy market.”
“This is the largest deal ever in the energy storage market in Israel,” said Ran Abudi, CEO of Aviem. “A few months ago, we set a goal to become the leading and most significant player in the energy storage market in Israel, and in fact, the first goal has been achieved in a relatively short period of time. Solegreen was impressed by Aviam/Tensor’s capabilities and their knowledge and experience of more than 50 years combined with engineering and implementation capabilities at the highest technological level.”
