Our new solar powered paddle wheel aerator is the next generation aeration solution for fisheries without power. Most fisheries now know the vital part aeration plays in good fishery management, and now you can achive this without the need for power.
The eO2 capacity of 420 watts of high efficiency, lightweight solar panels, coupled to a 24v DC motor enables this aerator to be sited anywhere on a lake providing instant aeration during daylight hours. The 4 customised paddles enable an O2 capacity similar to our 1hp paddle wired paddle wheel.
Through replacement of the glass and optimization of the frame, the eArche panel weighs as much as 70% less than conventional PV panels. eArche combines a unique, patented material with other industry-leading technologies to produce superior flexible crystalline-silicon panel.
Compared to the cost of a wired system, we estimate a solar system will be comparable in cost after 18 months use once you take into account wiring cost, electric costs, and machine costs. This is as long as you do have to have electric bought onto site which can cost many thousands of pounds.
