France, Paris: after 4 hours and 25 minutes Alastair Thomas from Arleigh International Ltd finished the Paris Marathon on April 7th 2013. He raised the amazing sum of £16,429.93 for B.eat and Children’s Hospice South West. As a proud sponsor of Alastair: thumbs up! Read full article
We offer a wide range of Hybrid Power Solutions for off-grid Base Transmission Stations (BTS) with integrated Network Operation Centers (NOC).
The advantages of installing a hybrid system designed by Victron Energy are:

Some examples of hybrid installations:
This phone mast in Austria is placed high on a mountain, where is no connection to the grid. Therefore, the phone mast was fully depending on a generator. Some disadvantages of a generator are the high costs of fuel, the noise and the air pollution. A perfect solution to solve these problems is a hybrid system. Instead of running the generator 24/7 at low load it will run short periods at high load to charge the battery bank. The telecom equipment is powered from the batteries when the generator is switched off. Wolfgang Pirker Electrotechnik and Victron Energy collaborated to design a system which reduced the use of the generator enormously. The installation consists of 3 MultiPlus 48/3000 units and 3 Skylla 48/50 units, in a 3-phase configuration. Before the hybrid installation, the noisy generator was working 24 hours a day. With the equipment of Victron, the phone mast can function for 5 days without the use of the generator. The generator will start automatically to charge the batteries.
Two AC inputs with integrated transfer switch. The Quattro can be connected to two independent AC sources, for example shore-side power and a generator, or two generators. The Quattro will automatically connect to the active source.
All Quattro- and several Multi inverter/chargers now have two AC outputs. In addition to the standard no-break output, an auxiliary output is available which disconnects the connected load during battery operation. It is, for example, the perfect solution for preventing an electric water heater from discharging your battery.
