Our products

Product category: Renewable Energy/Solar Power Technology

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 ALLinONE with integrated charge controller

The SP series, top of the SolbianFlex range, in an ALLinONE version: solar panel + charge controller. All the electronics you need is already packed into the rugged waterproof box: a sophisticated MPPT controller capable of boosting the voltage into the optimum charging curve for your battery.

The ALLinONE models can simply be combined by connecting each of them directly to your battery, each panel being completely independent from the others, thanks to the integrated charge controllers.

We are happy to announce that we are now also able to offer ALLinONE panels using our price-efficient SR- and SX series cells. These are – as an example – perfect for keeping your batteries full during storage and supplying enough energy for ventilation of the boat.

SolbianFlex SP Series

SP series is at the top of the range, using selected SunPower™ monocrystalline silicon cells. These reach a record 24% 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.

SolbianFlex SXX Series

Same size, more power: the SXX series comes at the same size of standard 6 inches cell panels but generates more power, thanks to its Silicon-based heterojunction solar cells (HJT) that offer more than 24% of efficiency. When compared with panels of the same nominal power, the SXX prove to harvest more energy due to HJT cells being intrinsically bifacial, an important feature especially when panels are encapsulated in a transparent sandwich and installed where indirect light can reach the rear of the panel. To top it all, HJT cells perform better than others in hot climates thanks to very low temperature coefficients.

In the SXX series the 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 to flexible modules, due to its intrinsic insensitivity to micro-cracks, that are the most common cause of energy loss in solar modules.

Product category: Renewable Energy/Solar Power Technology

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.

SolbianFlex SX-Series panels are mostly used in applications without high mechanical loads such as caravans and architectural installations.

Baltic 146 PATH - SOLBIAN Solar delivers largest solar system ever installed on sailing yacht

Presented at the Monaco Yacht Show, the Baltic 146 PATH - a superyacht with a length of 44.6m - features the largest solar system ever installed on a sailing yacht. A custom-made system with 8,714Wp is integrated into the roof of the yacht and, in addition to silent operation of the electronics, ensures a saving of up to 4.5t CO2 per year.

In cooperation with Baltic Yachts and the design office judel/vrolijk & co., a system was developed that not only fits into the design of the yacht, but also minimises the effects of the constantly changing shadow of the rig on the energy yield through a system of 154 bypass diodes integrated into the laminate and 12 independent MPP trackers.

A proprietary system for inserting artificial solar cells into the corner areas of the modules makes it possible to introduce curves into the design, thus enabling a smooth finish at the edges of the modules despite the visible solar cells.

With an output of 8,714Wp, the solar system of the Baltic 146 PATH is more
than just a design statement: the system delivers between 30 and 50kWh per
day, which enables the operation of the connected systems (navigation
electronics, autopilot, lighting, entertainment) for over seven hours. Combined with the 44kWh battery bank, it allows 14-18 hours of silent operation of these systems - time during which a generator would normally have to be running.

This not only saves fuel but also weight: the solar system including wiring, controllers and small parts weighs less than 300kg. A battery bank capable of storing the same amount of energy would weigh 400-600kg, require about 10-17 litres of diesel per day to charge and emit 50-75kg of CO2. Assuming 100 days of operation per year, this would save 1,000-1,700 litres of diesel or 2.6-4.5t of CO2.

The Baltic 146 PATH is thus leading a general trend in the superyacht sector: By using modern technologies and materials, the ecological footprint is reduced both during construction and operation. Especially in the area of energy management and supply, this also increases comfort and reliability on board.

Michael Körner, CEO SOLBIAN Solar / Sailectron GmbH: "The integration of our customised photovoltaic systems not only allows a significant reduction of the ecological footprint in the operation of the yacht - through continuous charging independent of external resources as well as redundant design of the control system, safety can be increased while reducing maintenance effort and running costs."

SOLBIAN Solar is the leading supplier of customised photovoltaic systems in the mobility sector - in addition to shipyards, it also supplies the automotive industry, manufacturers of rail vehicles and special vehicle construction.
