In tropical islands, solar power is cheaper than diesel-generated power, and, therefore, generates savings for each unit of solar power produced. Our solar solutions are built to perform 30 years to ensure that our products are safe long-term investments.
We also offer financed systems, with zero investment cost for the customer and savings from day one.
Technically –anything, depending on the size and parameters of the system. Usually, we connect the solar system to your existing power grid. In such way, all the solar energy produced always gets shared by various users within your grid, taking the electrical load away from generators and generating savings. Please see the analogy with people pushing a trolley full of typical consuming facilities of a Maldivian resort.
Swimsol systems can also be used off-grid where required.
I would like to introduce solar power into my facility. What do I need to start?
Solar systems require only minimal maintenance. Swimsol provides solutions that include monitoring and maintenance; systems are monitored via live Internet feed. When required, Swimsol reacts swiftly to any problems that arise.
What is the expected lifetime of a Swimsol system?
Working with electronics in the tropical marine environment is a challenge. We, therefore, searched for high-quality components, subjected them to stress testing and selected only the best for our systems. We use heavy-duty, high-performance panels developed specifically for tropical marine regions, and our systems have a lifetime of around 30 years.
Yes, if you are using diesel generators. We connect our solar systems into your existing power grid, and solar helps generators to carry the power load. Whenever the sun is shining this setup generates diesel savings; i.e. whatever power solar systems produce, diesel generators do not have to. Please see the analogy with people pushing a trolley full of typical consuming facilities of a Maldivian resort.
If you already use diesel generators (or another power source), Swimsol can integrate into your system without long-term storage batteries, as a hybrid solution. In cases where a purely solar (off-grid) system is required, long-term battery requirements vary on a case-to-case basis. Feel free to get in touch.
