10kW Hybrid Hut (With Solar Array)
A complete packaged power solution for off grid use.
Our Hybrid Huts are packaged into 8' or 10' Single use shipping containers & are designed & built to be delivered to site ready for work. They are generally available in 5kW & 10kW output sizes, we have a range of standard battery storage sizes but generally the capacity that you need depends on the size of your load so we do recommend that you give us a call to discuss your requirements in a little more detail.
What is the scope?
Inside the Hybrid Hut we have installed one of our PS18-1c Perkins diesel generators, this generator is sat on a 500ltr base fuel tank with plenty of access for refueling. The output of the generator is supplied connected to either a Victron Multiplus II inverter (5kW) or a Victron Quattro inverter (10kW) which is in turn connected to the Pylontech Lithium battery bank.
The shipping container is ply lined & there are removable access panels for any major generator maintenance. Battery & inverter maintenance along with general generator maintenance can be done from inside the Hybrid Hut. There is a courtesy light which operates on motion inside the Hybrid Hut so no fumbling around for torches or lights is required, we also provide a 13A socket within the hut for your convenience.
When you purchase a No Solar Hybrid Hut it is delivered ready for work. All of the wiring & commissioning has been done, all you have to do is earth the hut & connect your load cable to the consumer unit, put the system in auto & away you go. The system is designed to be flexible. If you decide to add a solar array at a later date to harvest energy you are able to do so, everything is ready for you to add on after you have purchased your solar panels & solar charger.
When you purchase a Hybrid Hut with solar cells again the generator & batteries are ready to be put to work straight away, however there is a little bit of work to do to site & wire your solar panels which will then need connecting to the hut.
How does it work?
Your load is supplied directly from a pre wired metal clad consumer unit mounted within the Hybrid Hut. The system is designed & configured to supply your load without starting the generator unless the batteries require recharging or your load demand exceeds the safe battery threshold.
What is the battery capacity?
The figures on here are for indication only & are our best guess at what to offer for a standard product. We do recommend that you talk with us so that we can size your battery bank. Batteries can be added to the system to give you extra capacity at any time you want.
What about servicing?
We recommend that the generator is serviced at least one time per year or every 500hrs (whichever is soonest), we offer contract rates for servicing to our Hybrid Hut customers.
What's your backup?
Every Hybrid Hut is built to communicate with our servers. In the event of a fault developing we will get an alert (we can configure the system for you to get this too) so if you are running low on fuel, if the generator is to hot or does not have enough oil or if there is a problem with the battery system we should be able to let you know. If you do develop a fault that we are not aware of or need some settings changed we are able to dial into the Hybrid Hut remotely & investigate or make changes. There are no ongoing charges for this service, however you will need to provide us with 2 x SIM cards which have internet access.
We like to think we have designed a fairly comprehensive package for most off grid customers however we are flexible enough to change designs or specifications to meet your exact requirements. For example you might want more or less battery capacity or you may want the generator locating in a slightly different way, or even a different coloured container to blend in with your surroundings. All of this & more is achievable.
