SkyBuilt Power to provide US Navy with solar/wind power
SkyBuilt Power announced today that it had been selected to provide rapidly deployable renewable power stations to the US Navy. SkyBuilt will be a subcontractor to CSC Applied Technology Group for NAVAIR's tracking systems under the SureTrak IDIQ. SkyBuilt's $2.1M contract will utilize SkyBuilt's expertise in advanced technology, rapidly deployable solar and wind power for the harshest environmental conditions on and off-grid, and will use solar and wind power to reduce or eliminate the need for fuel. These systems will reduce maintenance time and other operating costs and provide a more reliable solution than fuel-based systems.
About SkyBuilt Power. SkyBuilt is a leading product and systems integrator for rapidly deployable renewable energy solutions for military, intelligence, telecom, disaster relief, homeland security, sustainable economic development, USAID, DOE, and other markets. SkyBuilt provides end-to-end solutions from design and engineering to products, maintenance, and service.
SkyBuilt's solutions range from man-portable systems (SkyCase and SkyPAK solar blankets) to tactical trailers (SkyTrailer) and container-based (SkyStation) renewable power generation and mobile micro-grid efficiency solutions at the tactical edge (Mobile Tactical Microgrid). These systems can include solar and wind power generation, fuel cells, micro-hydro, energy storage, and backup generator options. They operate on or off-grid. Depending on the availability of sun and wind at a site, they can pay for themselves in months to a few years in operating cost savings, help the military cut fuel, logistics, and save lives from IED attacks on fuel convoys.
