The Frame-Watt® system, available in 3.6 or 4.3 kWc versions, is a kit that can be installed on portakabins, shipping containers or worksites. It enables autonomous energy production, thus supplying the portakabin with power
The Frame-Watt® is a platform that can be fitted on top of containers or worksite portakabins.
A crank is used to deploy the modules from the ground using a “scissor” mechanism. It has the advantage of having a small wind surface area, and can be folded away in adverse weather conditions. The modules are East-West facing, ensuring optimum solar capture.
The systems can be stacked on top of each other (up to 8 units), thus optimising transport. The system can also be transported on the 20 foot container (“Twist-lock” locking) - in High Cube mode.
