Marine Solar Panels

Flexible Solar Panels for Ships, Marine and Offshore Applications

In co-operation with our strategic partner, Solbian Energie Alternative of Italy, Eco Marine Power (EMP) is able to supply globally marine grade solar panels for shipping, marine and offshore applications.

These marine photovoltaic (PV) flexible_solbian_panel_2_600x800panels are designed to withstand the harsh conditions at sea & are suitable for all vessels ranging from small pleasure craft to ocean-going passenger ferries & cargo ships.

Solar panels produced by Solbian offer the power and reliability of crystalline silicon cells, combined with the lightness and flexibility of modern polymers.

The use of lightweight polymer films instead of traditional glass allows new applications for the proven technology of crystalline silicon cells.Flexible Marine Grade Solar Panel

The careful choice of materials and their thickness creates the right balance between protection of thin photovoltaic cells and the creation of a flexible and light case. Extreme flexibility, as seen in the picture, which will surprise anyone who has handled a crystalline solar cell, normally so brittle that they break under very low stress.

The polymers used are also characterized by high resistance to weathering, enabling certification according to IEC 61215 and 61730, a guarantee of long life even under the most extreme conditions, such as on racing yachts where the Solbian technology was applied for the first time.

The Solbian product, in its various versions, is a light, flexible and impact resistant PV module, which can even be walked upon. Lightness and flexibility make Solbian modules particularly suited to marine and sustainable mobility applications.

A range of products, solar cell technologies and accessories suitable for ships are available and customized panels are also possible upon request.

Marine grade frames and mounting kits for ships & offshore applications are also available.
