The Solar System as a whole was given a revamp by fixing the Solar Mounting system and rewiring the solar panels. The main ingredient though was replacing the 8 x 200 Ah Batteries with 3 x 3.55 Kwh Sirius Supercapacitor Modules.

Project Requirements

The Baobab Tented Camp was Powered by a Solar Power System using Lead acid batteries .The system struggled to supply stable power to the 4 tented chalets and communal Lapa as It was powered by only 3 Kwp of Solar Panels. The 400Ah 48 V bank could not charge efficiently and batteries has been replaced twice in the plants 6 year life span.

Solution

The Solar System as a whole was given a revamp by fixing the Solar Mounting system and rewiring the solar panels.
The main ingredient though was replacing the 8 x 200 Ah Batteries with 3 x 3.55 Kwh Sirius Supercapacitor Modules

Result

After 1 Year of operation the client informed us that it was the first year of the plant that they did not need to start the backup generator.
Charging efficiency of the Supercaps came to the fore and allows the client to ensure power for their Clients 24/7 365 Days a year the high temperature that Sirius Modules can be subject to will also ensure many years of smooth operation for this top class venue.
