3 x Advantages of Straatman’s solar systems

We started off our solar system solutions around 6 years ago, from the port in Rotterdam (Tweede Maasvlakte). We were working on an assignment for a client and needed power supply for the quick release mooring hooks and capstans. Previously, our client would have applied electricity via cables through the water. However, we knew that these cables are prone to extensive damage as the anchors of passing boats can scrape or break them. As a result, repair costs can increase and tasks are interrupted. Also, placing cables via the seabed is a risk full and expensive operation. To minimize all these risks, our engineers developed a solar system for quick release mooring hooks.
