At Blommaert, we contribute to making inland navigation more sustainable. By investing in integrated solar panels onto hatches you will save on fuel costs and will need to use the generator less. There is also the advantage of becoming less dependant on shore power. You can also expect a lasting return on investment.
With solar panels on your hatches, a 100% green energy will be generated. You will save on shore power and fuel costs. When combined with a battery system, Solar hatches reduces the time you will need to use the generator, allowing for savings on maintenance costs and also extending the lifetime of your generator. Solar panels allow you to be less dependent on price increases of fuel and shore power, now and in the future, as solar energy is free. Purchasing solar panels also allows for tax benefits and subsidies. These are applicable on both the custom hatches and the battery and solar panel system. With a Solar shutter system you can therefore achieve a return of 5 to 10% per year*.
Our solar panels are highly efficient, thin and ultra lightweight. The solar panels require little maintenance, are dirt-resistant, robust and will be custom designed for your hatches. All components are IP67 certified and protected against dust, corrosion and salt water.. This is a complete solar panel system including integrated micro-inverters and cabling. The system is plug & play and can be easily connected to the on-board grid by your electrician.
