Named ‘Helios’, after the ancient Greek god of the sun, the solar containers are aimed at disrupting the cold-chain and remote power industry with containerised solar solutions. The product launch includes solar refrigerators, solar freezers, and solar renewable generators, aimed at empowering individuals, businesses and communities to ‘go green’ with the ability to access solar energy. This in turn will reduce their carbon footprint while saving significant amounts of money on operations and fuel costs compared to diesel generators.

The technology removes the need to rely on expensive and often unavailable supplies of diesel fuel, providing a sustainably derived ROI within the first couple of years of operation. They are completely energy independent of the grid and reliable and the technology has already been deployed and has performed in some of the most unrelenting environments in the Australian outback.

The solar containers are aimed as a sustainable solution to many industries, especially agriculture and aquaculture, infrastructure, construction and mining, national defense, events, first responders, government operations, and disaster relief. The refrigerator and freezer technology will have an immediate impact on agriculture and aquaculture in that they enable fresh foods, meat and dairy to be immediately chilled, cold-stored or frozen as close to the source as possible, and at the optimal picking point temperature, thereby extending the product’s value and shelf life. The containers can also be upgraded with distribution lockers to facilitate customer order pick up allowing farms and grocery stores the ability to monetise and activate underutilised areas on existing sites, or they can be dropped in rural areas or food deserts.

Logistically, containers can be deployed within an existing cold supply chain to provide increased sustainable cold storage availability. In response to natural disasters, Helios containers can be rapidly deployed around the world by land, sea, and air supplying first responders with sustainable refrigeration and site power.

The renewable solar-powered generators are sustainable reliable replacements for diesel generators, being able to operate fully independently from grid power and providing an uninterrupted power supply (UPS). The power is supplied by the ‘Smart Switch’ energy management system, the deployed solar array, battery storage, and the backup generator. All protected inside a securable container that is both weather and vandal-proof.

The technology requires no special tools or training and the units are fully operational in under 30 minutes with a simple push-button operation. Units only need to be set down and the solar panels deployed. The containers offer a greener, cleaner and dependable sustainable mobile generator alternative that will provide significant savings on fuel and operating costs and immediately reduce carbon emissions.

Each model is 100 percent solar-powered with battery back-up requiring no fuel, additional generator, or grid connection. Real-time analytics of energy usage patterns logged and analysed and remote monitoring allows for the units to be calibrated for optimal performance, providing the ability to report savings and contributions up the line. Allowing for aligned reporting in carbon emission reductions for Corporate Sustainability Reporting (CSR) and United Nations (UN) sustainable development goals.
