Solatainer

Solatainer has been developed to provide an autonomous off-grid power supply, integrating renewable-power and storage with diesel-power back-up to reduce fuel consumption, carbon emissions and carbon footprint.

Created sustainably from a single-use 20ft ISO shipping container, Solatainer® supports a PV array, battery storage and a high efficiency diesel generator for energy security. During daytime operation, the energy created by the Solatainer® solar panels is harvested and stored in an on-board battery pack.

The high efficiency generator is configured to run only when the batteries are depleted below a software-set limit or when a demand spike occurs. Available in single or three phase configuration a basic Solatainer® can be used as a direct replacement for a diesel generator in situations upto 25 kW. Beyond 25 kW Solatainer® is scalable upto 100 kW using Gaia’s Solawedge® to increase the size of the PV array and by increasing on-board battery capacity through additional cells.
