Solar Gen - Mobile Off-Grid Solar Containers

What is Solar-Gen ?

Solar-Gen is a new range of customisable solar pv generators with battery storage, housed in modified shipping containers. 

The solar pv arrays have peak outputs from 800 Wp to over 10,000 Wp and larger systems can link together into a mini-grid.

The standard Solar-Gen systems consist of a solar pv array, control panel, battery bank and very often an inverter/charger/ups.

The Solar-Gen battery bank is  custom sized for the client’s load to provide typically from 5 to 15 days autonomy, depending on how critical the application is and where the system will be located.

The Solar-Gen range can be fitted with OPzV Lead Acid, Lead Carbon or Lithium batteries. 

A wide range of power output voltages are available – all the way from 12, 24 & 48 VDC up to 240V AC and 400/415V AC (3 Phase). Peak power output on the larger AC systems is currently 75 kVA (1ph), and 180 kVA (3ph). 

Diesel or fuel cell generators can be added to the system for mission-critical systems.
