30 KW Microgrid Hybrid Solar Diesel Genset System w/ Multicluster - US Army, Marshall Islands
This Microgrid PV Diesel system operates a critical communication system used for Missile testing by the US Army. Operating essentially as a forward base station, this system dramatically reduces the usage and fuel consumption of the rotating 30 kW diesel gensets the client had been using. As the project was for US Department of Defense, American Made Sharp solar modules, Prosolar racks and SMA inverters were designed and furnished by SES to Science Applications International Corp, who has the O&M contract in this East Pacific DOD region.
SAIC contracted with SES separately for one of our senior PV Specialists who spent two weeks on site at Carlos Island supervising and successfully commissioning the installation. The site has remote communication access via the SMA Web box, so our NABCEP PV technicians can remotely troubleshoot the system for the client when needed.
Components supplied by Solar Electric Supply include:
- Sharp solar panels
- SMA Sunny Island inverters
- SMA Multicluster Box 6
- SMA Sunny Boy string inverters
- Deka Unigy II Spacesaver Battery
- Professional Solar Products Roof Trac PV mounting system
- Solar Electric Supply system design and support
