In cooperation with Dutch dredging contractor Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V., HollandMT has successfully completed the field testing program of the Solar Powerpack at the IJmuiden ship lock expansion project.

In this dredging project, the Solar Powerpack was engaged 24/7 and provided hydraulic power to sand-fill valves in the TSHD dredge disposal area.

“Demands for Green-technology in the dredging industry inspired HollandMT to develop the Solar Powerpack,” the company said in its announcement.

“The 24 VDC-driven powerpack can provide hydraulic power to remotely located equipment which is not continuously operated or only at time intervals, such as hydraulic operated sand-fill valves in dredging disposal areas.”

“The Solar Powerpack provides a durable, safe, economic and green-alternative for bulky, maintenance and fuel-demanding diesel driven powerpacks.”

This technology can provide hydraulic power to two operated sand-fill valves simultaneously and is delivered including control unit and integrated fold-out solar panels.

The unit can also be charged by an external (110-230 V) power source and optionally the unit can be fitted with remote control.
