You can see it in the pictures where the prototype is being tested. And with success. It is waterproof, floats well, can take a good beating, never sinks and is powered by solar energy and Lithium as a fall-back system. This solar tracker is an autonomous die-hard. In addition to transmitting its GPS position up to every minute, the tracker is also equipped as an IoT device for receiving and sending sensor data.
This prototype is being tested for cleaning up rubbish floating on the oceans. Other applications are buoys that form a hazard when they are broken loose. With this solar tracker they are easy to trace. Or applications on floating fishing nets orfloating energy parks at sea.
Our design approach is based on modularity. This GTTS-5000 solar tracker is based on the modules in our now proven GTTS-3000 Iridium tracker. This ensures a fast - within 6 months - time-to-market. By reusing the modules and also by knowing that the software is stable. The photos show the successful tests in the North Sea last December. And now the path to production has been started.
If you are interested in this modular structure for applications at sea, we will be happy to inform you about the possibilities.
