The arrival of battery technology and the new Energy Storage Module, now provides the opportunity of hybrid power stations.
A power plant is always tailored to your needs; such as the power you require, fluctuations in power demand, local fuel supply, available footprint and potential logistical challenges, access to the site … and all legal regulations applicable for your working site – such as emissions and safety. Whereas the maximum power level required, typically lead to an over sized diesel power module in the past; in recent years modular power stations optimized your power load more efficiently.
What is a hybrid power plant?
A hybrid power plant typically combines 2 different power sources. It's strenght is how the sources are optimized so combined they form a more efficient source of power.
A temporary hybrid power plant generally consists of a diesel driven power module and an energy storage unit.
How does a hybrid power plant work?
When your temporary power demand is fluctuating, there are several solutions to provide the required power onsite. Over time, new developments allow for more sustainable solutions. Discover how a hybrid power plant works and how energy storage is the next step for better fuel efficiency, less emissions, less noise and much more benefits!
What are the advantages of a hybrid power plant?
The more your power demand fluctuates, the higher the benefits of a hybrid power plant.
Lower CO2 emissions
Power when and where you need it, with the lowest ecological footprint.
Limit your fuel costs
When your power demand goes down, a diesel power plant loses efficiency by running at partial load. With a hybrid solution, those inefficiencies are absorbed by loading the energy storage unit, so you keep the highest efficiency; and gain extra quite hours.
Keep it quite
Once your energy module is charged, you can enjoy quite and sustainable power.
Limit interventions onsite
Quite often working sites cannot be easy accessed: they are too remote, too expensive to reach (eg offshore), too secured… A power station will always require regular maintenance and refueling actions. A hybrid power station will drastically lower the interactions needed onsite. Less interactions means less logistic flows, less security risks… and a more reliable power solution.
Your personal power consumption profile determines the savings.
Whether it's in liters of fuel, CO2 emissions, noise levels, running hours, refuelling and service operations... We can calculate what you would save by going hybrid.
