The Energy Globe Foundation recently awarded Sailectron GmbH from Graz, Austria with Thailand's Energy Globe Award for designing and manufacturing a fully integrated custom solar system.
Invisible wiring, all electrical components fully integrated into the walkable (!) high-tech solar panel, made-to-measure, completely integrated into the yacht's deck and, last but not least, marine-grade as needed for its installation on a luxury sailing catamaran: This engineering masterpiece convinced the Energy Globe Foundation's jury to award Sailectron and SOLBIAN with the prestigious National Energy Globe Award.
"This kind of marine solar systems is revolutionary. Weighing only 20kg it delivers up to 1.700 watts - conventional systems, being bulky and hard to integrate, weigh around 150-250kg", explains CEO Michael Körner, whose company was responsible for design and integration of the solar system, which was then installed in a Thai shipyard.
