MAKE REAL SAVINGS ON
DIESEL COSTS WITH SOLAR POWER.
Intelligent hybrid systems for a forward-looking energy supply.
Ever-increasing diesel operating costs?
Major industrial consumers such as mine operators, farms, hotels, hospitals and
energy suppliers for remote villages often ensure their energy demand with diesel
generators. However, the costs of these are high and are clearly set to increase.
The price of crude oil has doubled in the last 10 years, the logistics of diesel is
complex and often environmentally hazardous. On top of this are the costs for
repair and essential maintenance through wear and tear. As a result, energy
supply with diesel power in commercial companies already makes up the bulk of
operating costs and reduces competitiveness.
Electricity costs per kWh
Disadvantages of a diesel generator
High operating costs due to expensive diesel fuel
High maintenance costs due to frequent servicing
High freight and storage costs
Rising costs of raw materials
Limited availability of fossil fuels
Harmful exhaust gases and noise pollution
Long-term cost reduction with solar power!
The system prices of photovoltaic systems have dropped considerably in recent
years. This means that in sunny regions, photovoltaic electricity can already today
be generated at a cheaper rate than with diesel generators. The combination of
solar power with a diesel system puts an end to increasing costs, helps save you
money and increases your competitiveness through the cost advantage. Moreover,
an intelligent photovoltaic system is easy to integrate and offers numerous
advantages such as low-maintenance operation and simple extension of output
Return on investment with hybrid systems
Advantages of a photovoltaic-diesel hybrid system
Reduction of variable costs through considerably lower diesel consumption
Reduction of maintenance costs through longer service intervals
Self-sufficiency – the sun is always available
Planning security through independence from commodity prices
Innovative and green technology
Less CO 2 emissions protects mankind and the environment
Intelligent energy management with
diesel plus photovoltaics
The photovoltaic hybrid system is an intelligent energy management system which
is considerably more efficient than a diesel system. At the core is a monitoring and
control unit which continuously monitors electricity consumption and adjusts the
power production of the various generators accordingly. The intelligent system
ensures that there is a hierarchy in power production. Cost-effective solar power
is integrated into the network as a priority. Electricity production costs are
optimised as the system always allows the diesel generators to run in the most
efficient rotation speed. At the same time it is guaranteed that production will
Monitoring and control unit
Reliable, continuous and stable power supply
The diesel-run generators always have a capacity reserve and offset fluctuations
in photovoltaic power production. If there is long-term insufficient solar coverage,
the monitoring and control unit switches on further diesel generators and
continues to ensure that all diesel generator sets work at optimum efficiency. In
any event, a stable grid and a reliable, cost-effective energy supply is guaranteed.
Increase your competitiveness with solar power
Photovoltaic systems have seen considerable cost reductions in recent years,
whereby solar power is already cheaper than conventional electricity in many
places. The modules are extremely low in maintenance and generally supply
energy reliably for more than 20 years. The investment pays itself off within a few
years. Afterwards you produce your solar power at almost no costs.
Good to know
The integration of other renewable
energy sources can counteract any
weather-related fluctuations in
photovoltaic power production.
Electricity generation is harmonised.
Modular expansionable photovoltaic power plant
Even major industrial consumers can be supplied with cost-efficient solar power
because the output of photovoltaic systems can be designed up to the megawatt
scale. A major advantage is that the capacity of the photovoltaic power plant can
be easily expanded if energy demand increases.
