Off Grid Energy
The harsh conditions of the ocean environment demand specialist Off-Grid Marine Solar PV modules and equipment. Having been involved in the design and installation of specially customised marine equipment for over 30 years, today Beco are widely recognised as specialists in the field.
Marine Solar PV panels are optimal for charging the batteries that power off-shore buoys, light vessels and isolated lighthouses. We design custom made power kits including Solar PV panels, deep cycle batteries, and controllers that are designed to be submerged in water and withstand the harshest conditions on land or sea.
So, you’ve done a great thing and installed Solar PV now how do you now maximise use of your free, self-generated power?
With our origins in batteries, no one is better placed than Beco to advise on the battery storage revolution which is rapidly gaining momentum. With global growth of renewable energy, the battery storage market is developing in tandem for both domestic and commercial applications. Falling feed-in-tariffs have accelerated the demand for battery storage as owners of PV systems endeavour to benefit from the full generation potential of their installations.
Marine Energy Case Study – Middle East Navigation Aids Service (MENAS)
Beco has been working with MENAS for 20 years and have provided many iterations of the Lantern Buoy Regulator and other charge controller solutions.
The Lantern Buoy Regulator is required to regulate the power output from the solar modules to ensure effective charge of the onboard battery bank without the risk of overcharging.
