As part of the ZEPHYR (ZEro-imPact innovative tecHnologY in foRest plant production) project, Exergy were tasked with the design, project management and installation of this unique off grid PV system.
The PV panels have been installed on a specially designed folding roof that retracts flat to the top of the container for easy and safe transportation. The container will be transported to different countries within Europe.
Generated electricity will assist the pre-cultivation of forest regeneration materials in a zero-impact and cost friendly environment. The energy generated will power the AC and DC loads within the container that includes a robotic arm that is an integral part of the plant cultivation process.
Exergy travelled to Rome to manage the installation of the PV panels and the rest of the power system, working alongside the other consortium members of ZEPHYR.
