Driving up efficiency, driving down emissions
SiteGrid, our hybrid power system offers a convenient and efficient method of delivering power to any construction environment without a grid connection. Whether a site needs power for lighting, a welfare cabin or equipment SiteGrid will deliver power far more efficiently than a generator alone.
SiteGrid utilises generator power, and renewables if available, to store power in a sophisticated battery bank with a dedicated monitoring & control system, delivering silent power from the battery when needed. The generator will only be started when loads demand more power or, to top up the battery. Significantly reducing emissions, the size of generator required and fuel costs.
In addition, for intelligent power management, SiteGrid has an optional Energy Management Unit (EMU) which allows six separate loads to be fed independently and programmed with their own unique schedules.
- Silent Power – Battery storage delivers silent power
- Fuel Saving – Save fuel by running generator less
- Remote Monitoring – Full control and monitoring of your hybrid system
- Lower Emissions – Less generator run time reduces emissions
- Installation – Simple installation and configuration
Monitoring and Control
Full online monitoring and control is available via the Victron VRM website. This shows all relevant parameter and historic data including battery capacity, power usage and solar input along with many other selectable parameters. The user can also set alarms to ensure that the whole system operates at its optimum performance at all times.
Keeping noise levels on construction sites to a minimum at night is a requirement in most residential and built up areas. However, during these hours there is still a requirement for power – lighting, security, dry roomings etc. SiteGrid helps balance this issue by supplying low loads at night via the battery bank, meaning the generator never needs to run. Great for both noise levels and emissions.
Energy Management Unit (EMU)
SiteGrid features an optional Energy Management Unit (EMU) to bring more sophisticated control for sites with a variety of power requirements. The EMU allows six separate loads to be fed from the unit and programmed with their own unique schedules. For example – one feed could be for security lighting that is triggered by the in-built light sensor, another could be for the drying cabin that does not need to be heated during Saturday and Sunday. The EMU system allows businesses to further reduce their emissions by using intelligent power planning, in addition to reducing fuel costs and generator noise.
Hybrid Power Improving Air Quality
An increasing concern in built up areas and construction sites are the particulate and NOx emissions from diesel generators. Our hybrid power units reduce the run time of generators substantially – therefore cutting down these emissions. Whilst a hybrid system does not stop generator use completely, they make a significant difference to the local air quality, which is a benefit for both onsite staff welfare and local residents.
