Made-to-measure solar systems

Modern production facilities in Italy with processes and machinery focussed on maximum flexibility and an experienced team of engineers allow us to design and manufacture the perfect solar system for your specific project. Processes have been optimized to a degree allowing to offer this without any extra charge in most cases.
A CNC cutting machine guarantees smallest tolerances and perfect fit - for final checks of the design we can provide 1:1 paper templates to check the dimensions and shapes.

Send us dimensioned sketches / drawings together with photographs of all areas you plan to use to generate power from sunlight. Our experts will then not only work out the perfect cell layout, but also place strings and bypass diodes together with selected MPPT charge regulators in a way allowing to maximize energy yield even in situations where shade covers parts of the system.

Concerning installation and wiring our team will assist to work out a solution that perfectly covers your needs. From deck-integrated invisible wiring to optimized waterproof junction box on the front- or backside of the panels: We will find a solution for any problem we may encounter during the design process.

For optical integration of the system we can provide a wide selection of fabric types and colors if the system should be mounted on textile surfaces - even the panel itself can be pigmented to fit textile covers, wood surfaces or yacht decks.

Deck installations

SolbianFlex solar panels feature invisible wiring on the backside and a thickness of only 2mm - this makes them perfect for installation on boat decks, ensuring perfect integration in the optical appearance of modern yachts. If mounted on a solid surface, the modules are fully walkable, an optional nonskid finish makes working on the panels possible even in wet conditions.

We are happy to manufacture custom-sized solar systems, ensuring a perfect fit through modern CNC cutting machinery.

SolbianFlex SP Series

SP series is at the top of the range, using selected SunPower™ monocrystalline silicon cells. These reach a record 23% conversion of sunlight into electricity and offer a pleasant appearance thanks to back-contact technology which hides the electrical contacts. SunPower™ cells represent the most advanced technology available on the market, making the SP Solbian panels the highest efficiency flexible panels currently available.

In 2018 the SP series has seen an update in cell technology, packing even more power into the same panel size!

SolbianFlex SR Series

The monocrystalline high efficiency SR cells are sandwiched by two patented “Merlin” metallic grids. One grid, on the front, is carefully tailored to optimize the current harvesting, while the grid behind the cell offers strong mechanical support. These grids essentially form a double shield that acts as a conducting reinforcement to the solar cell.

Extreme crack and bend tolerance are built in, enabling novel crystalline silicon architectures. A guaranty of high efficiency and unmatched durability in semi-flexible solar panels.

After their world premiere 2017 we have further optimized cell efficiency of the SR series. Strong demand for these panels, especially for installations on textile structures, encourages us in our strategy of continoously investing in research and development to stay at the cutting edge of technology.

SolbianFlex SX Series

In the SX series monocrystalline solar cells are electrically connected using ultra-thin copper wires that form a very fine mesh on the cell surface, resulting in thousands of contact points. This alternative to the standard bus-bar method allows a higher module power and increases the energy yield. A technology optimally suited for flexible modules due to its intrinsic insensitivity to micro-cracks, the most common cause of energy loss in solar modules.

Another advantage is a reduced sensitivity to shading, pushed to the extreme in the Guardian (G) models where additional bypass diodes are inserted thanks to an innovative cell layout. This new connection technology, together with the use of high efficiency silicon cells, makes SX panels especially powerful and reliable.

SOLBIAN Solar wins 2018 Boatbuilder Awards Honorable Mention

For its collaboration with Solaris Yachts and the result - a fully integrated solar system - Sailectron / SOLBIAN Solar has been awarded the 2018 Boatbuilder Awards Honorable Mention.

The project:
Solaris Yachts wanted to maintain the clean, aesthetic look of its sailboat designs on the Solaris 55, but with a built-in solar panel system. Close collaboration between the engineering teams of Solaris and Sailectron led to a solution that not only blends into the design, but also offers a technically good solution with 540W peak power and distributed maximum power point tracking for optimum shade tolerance. The system has been very well received and is now adapted to other Solaris models.

Premiere at the Boot 2019: Guardian SX and improved ISP series pigmented photovoltaics

In the 2019 edition of the Düsseldorf boat show, the Turin based company Solbian will introduce a new series, the Guardian SX which will further expand Solbian’s offer.

The Guardian technology addresses one of the most important problems of photovoltaics, the shading issue: as a matter of fact shadows sensibly reduce the efficiency of solar modules, thus compromising their effectiveness.

Guardian SX Series uses the exclusive design of Day4 stay- powerful™ technology, stay-powerful cells can optimize the module’s performance even when shaded by trees, buildings or partially covered by leaves, snow or debris.

The main difference between standard and Guardian modules is that a single shaded cell can decrease the power of a Guardian panel by only a ninth, whereas a standard module in the same situation would lose one third to half of its output.

The result is a panel that is far less sensitive to shading, a clear advantage in all kind of installations but especially on sailing boats, where shadows are unavoidable.

Another important news will be announced at BOOT 2019: The ISP (Invisible Solar Power) option will be updated. The portfolio of graphics to be applied on the panel’s surface will be enriched: solid colors, materials, geometric patterns, thus expanding even more the customization possibilities and offering improved solar integrations.

SOLBIAN Solar wins 2018 National Energy Globe Award

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.
