Solar power systems

Are you in the situation where a regular power supply system, by meaning of cables, is not preferred or even impossible? Then Straatman has the solution!

Straatman has developed a sustainable autonomous solar energy solution. This high quality green power supply system with virtually no downtime, allows you to power almost any system on remote or offshore applications like:

  • LNG berths 
  • Mooring dolphins 
  • Ship signage
  • Buoy systems 
  • Construction area’s  
  • Work light systems
  • Sensor on remote locations 
  • Ball joint on barges 
  • Hydraulic valves

For hazardous area applications such as LNG or oil and gas terminals, we can supply explosion proof solar panels according to the latest ATEX and IECex guidelines.

Recent Solar Systems projects

Our mooring and dredging expertise combined

A couple of years ago we used our expertise to design remotely operated 250 tons quick release hooks, equipped with a solar powered hydraulic powerpack. These are used by a mega cutter suction dredger on their left and right anchor line pontoons, for safe deployment and operation. The lines are used to move the ship in a left-to-right motion, sweeping their dredging work along the sea or river bed.
