Solar PV R&DProject ECLIPS Container Roll Out Solar System (CROSS)
This report details how ECLIPS has successfully completed the development and test of the CROSS, which culminated in a live setup demonstration to industry in Canberra on 12 April 2018.
The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) awarded funding to ECLIPS to contribute to the development of ECLIPS’ Container Roll-Out Solar System (CROSS). CROSS is a factory assembled, relocatable ground mount solar PV array that can be stacked seven high for shipping and loaded into standard 20ft and 40ft ISO shipping containers. The CROSS are fitted with heavy duty rollers on one end that enable easy loading and unloading of the stacked units through the doors of a shipping container using a forklift. The CROSS design is based on ECLIPS’ patented Container Roll-Out Warehousing System (CROWSTM), which is an intermodal logistics platform used to provide high payload mezzanine layering in shipping containers. The CROSS replicates the logistics efficiencies of CROWS in the delivery of relocatable solar array solutions.
ECLIPS have successfully completed the development and test of the CROSS, which culminated in a live setup demonstration to industry in Canberra on 12 April 2018. This report provides an overview of the Project and includes information relevant to industry partners and energy users who are considering relocatable solar PV applications.
