1 kW Hybrid - barge - United Kindom

The Wind Factory supplied and installed  three wind-solar hybrid systems on different barges (fuel suppliers) to be active in the Southern coast of England. The system consists of several SHARP solar panels combined with a 400 W wind turbine with DC controller for 24 V direct output for charging the deep cycle service batteries. The system is mainly used for lightning and communication equipment. Additionally a DC/DC converter charges the engine starting batteries on the ship. The interconnected Mastervolt equipment can easily be monitored and programmed by the Easyview touch screen as well as laptop connection. Energy consumption on the barge itself has become very efficient and autonomous without diesel genset intervention!
