Solar GEM® (Green Energy in Motion) - Plug-and-play solar plant for on and off-grid areas
Solar GEM® is a pre-assembled solar plant, forming the solar array, by unfolding the metallic structure holding the PV modules.
The concept of Solar GEM® consists of pre-assembled solar plants integrated into standard containers. These are easy to transport and minimize installation works on site. In cyclonic regions, solar power plants are vulnerable. Solar GEM® offers a protection from climate events: the structure supporting the photovoltaic modules simply needs to be folded back into the containers, and the cyclone can pass through. Once milder weather conditions return, the structure is re-deployed to bring the power plant back into operation. This minimizes maintenance costs and keeps the plant operational. The solution is adaptable, given its modular nature, to the foreseeable increase in electricity consumption of the supplied villages: additional solar containers can be easily deployed and plugged.
