Mobile Power System, 2010
API’s Mobile Power system (MPS) is specifically designed to be a highly portable, quickly deployable renewable power generation plant and is a result of fieldwork requirements that emerged during the I-TASC and MAKROLAB projects. the MPS is capable of 2KW generation, supporting 2 solar plants, and 2 wind turbines in total. Field-tested on Siuraarjuk Peninsula, NU (Location: 69.850607 N, -81.278800 W) in May 2010, it supplied ample power to light the cabin, power a laptop and satellite internet connection, which in turn allowed for a live video exchange between Suiraarjuk, NU and London, UK.
Concept: Matthew Biederman, Marko Peljhan, Nejc Trošt
A design and industrial collaboration between API, PROJEKT ATOL and C-ASTRAL ltd. (Samo Stopar, Andrej Bizjak, Primoz Lemut)
The plans of the Isagutaq will be published in the technology cahier under an open source license.
