Solar + Methanol Fuel Cell Power Generation System for Wind Lidars
The MOBISUN HYBRID Power Trailer is specifically designed to meet the demanding power needs of Wind Lidars in urban, rural, and remote locations.
Unique for the wind assessment market that requires 24/7 reliability, the MOBISUN Hybrid combines the clean renewable energy of solar power generation with a fully integrated methanol fuel cell power generation system with methanol fuel cartridges as backup in an insulated NEMA 3R equivalent enclosure to charge the on-board battery storage. Includes a custom triangular aluminum box to protect the Lidar during transport and the met station has been placed in the ideal position on the top of the solar array. Reliable, off-grid power is a challenge in any application. MOBISUN HYBRID systems provide fully autonomous, sustainable, reliable and maintenance free, off-grid power solutions capable of handling the harshest environments.
Larger power storage available with built in solar panels and larger footprint MOBIPOWER Portable Containerized Systems.
The MOBISUN HYBRID Power Trailer is the perfect solution to displace the use of diesel generators (legacy technology producing harmful carbon emissions and disruptive noise) and can play an important role toward the decarbonization of off-grid power systems and contribute, in part, to broader net-zero organizational objectives. Specifically designed to power a Wind Lidar, the MOBISUN Hybrid combines the clean renewable energy of solar power generation with on-board battery storage and integrated methanol fuel cell power generation system for 24/7 reliability and 100% uptime without needing refueling for several months.
EFOY 2800 Pro Direct Methanol Fuel Cell technology is an eco-friendly catalytic process that converts methanol into electricity. When a solar array fails to deliver enough power, the fuel cell senses the battery voltage drop and automatically switches on to keep the battery bank charged, ensuring a constant flow of power for mission critical applications – requiring no refuelling or human interaction for several months.
Thus, battery life is extended significantly since the controlled charging protects them from harmful deep discharges. This technology is one of the cleanest ways of generating electricity.
✔ Guaranteed power availability 24 / 7 / 365
✔ Smart, automatic battery charging supplements solar shortfalls
✔ 4 x M28 methanol fuel cartridges on board provide 62kWh of energy autonomy – enough to power a 108W load for 50 days without solar input
✔ Combined with solar, the MOBISUN Hybrid solution provides approximately
✔ 12 months of energy autonomy and superior power reliability
Monitoring & Control
Access the internet through the on-board GSR cellular modem for both the Solar Power and Fuel Cell systems.
Monitor the battery state of charge, power consumption, power harvest from solar, generator and mains in real-time. Optimise the energy harvest and usage with history graphs and detailed analytical reports. Catch potential issues early by setting alerts and follow up on alarms to prevent definitive system failure. You can change any setting, follow up on alarms, perform diagnostic checks and resolve challenges from wherever you are.
EFOY Pro fuel cell system is also monitored remotely. It notifies upcoming fuel cartridge replacements, ensures planning safety and reduces the need for administration and maintenance.
Large quantity production runs proudly manufactured in North America, leveraging ISO 9001 Certified facilities and expertise.
