I refuse to put spring tensioners on a bike, and that one doesn't seem to be made for these bikes anyway.

In case you haven't thought of it- why not set the motor chain without a tensioner- a smaller gear helps clearance issues and gives faster speed at lower revs and vibrations-
and then just tension the pedal chain instead- much safer
Small very lightweight tensioners can be had for $10-12
or even hang a derailleur and go multi speed?
