SunCell GREEN - marine solar energy panels
Electricity only OR electricity and hot water.
The solar panels currently fitted to yachts are all derivatives of products originally intended for non-marine installation. They are heavy, relatively inefficient, vulnerable to sea-water corrosion, and very sensitive to shade and angle to the sun. None are fitted with a water circulation system to cool the panels for 20% higher output and heat the water in the boiler.
We offer a modular range built around our standard 100w unit that is combined to make systems of 200 and 300w on the Lego principle.
Each panel can have (or not have) the water cooling solution. many systems will be mixed.
You can include our SOLAR GREEN intelligent controller as an integral part of your solar hot water system
Panel efficiency is exceptional - in excess of 22% - generally 33% more than competing conventional products reducing the footprint for a given required output.
Partial shading effects are virtually eliminated through the use of Ideal Diode Controllers instead of regular bypass diodes.
Can be mounted and operated in virtually any, even vertical position: even during sailing.
If mounted on a push pit, it can double as back rest for the crew. Can harvest even very low light angles - even the reflected light from the sea surface.
1 piece back and frame Epoxy glass fiber waterproof and encapsulating:13. Completely corrosion free:
Insolation surface treated with nanotechnology for permanent better transparency.

Whilst we always wanted to have a “green” product, we also want to have it manufactured as “green” as possible. After running test after prototype housing built in FRP, we noticed how much waste there would be after CNC-ing, a waste you can not recycle or dispose in an acceptable way. So we decided to turn to another material, which is already recycled, and can be recycled as many times as needed: ABS. That means that our housings will be as tough and durable as the FRP, but with NO manufacturing waste at all. The thermoformed parts will be finally CNC-ed, and the complete unused part of the material will be returned back to the recycler.
We are proud to say that now we have the ZERO WASTE manufacturing process, in which around 90+% are recycled materials, and the final product will be 98% recyclable... It feels SOOOO GOOOD TO BE ABLE to spare the environment, and still have a quality product.
So when you will hold our panel in hands, you may be wondering how many past lives and shapes are hidden in the product, which is actually still in use, reborn as a Phoenix instead of just being thrown as waste material...
