SUNBEAMsystem Carbon Quick Fix
With the new Carbon model, SUNBEAMsystem offers a resilient solar panel with a very quick and simple installation on an existing canvas (for example a Bimini).
It used to be problematic to fit big solar panels on canvas
Canvas will not offer adequate support for a traditional big soft solar panel. This has been noticed in the yachting community with excessive material wear and strange break downs. Leading to some yacht owners opting for heavy, rigid and framed solar panels that demands a complicated installation.
SUNBEAMsystem has previously only sold 54Watt sizes for use on Canvas to help customers avoid damage to the big sized solar panels. This even though SUNBEAMsystem solar panels that are meant for fitting on a hard surface are stiffer than most other brands solar panels in the same size. However customer demands have meant that many bigger sized panels have been fitted on Bimini´s and other types of Canvas. In some cases, also against better knowledge by the producers and installers. A continuous flexing will wear out any type of material and sometimes unrelated damage might occur.
The integrated Carbon fiber stiffener addresses this issue and allows the use of big sized solar panels on top of a soft top. The strength/weight ratio of carbon fiber is important since the canvas will normally not support a heavy solution.
The Quick Fix system allows for a semi-temporary mounting on canvas or other surfaces. Easy and fast to mount with the stainless steel studs. The Quick Fix system is the ideal solution to mount solar panels on a sprayhood or Bimini.
The Black surface will match any type of colored canvas top. The edges are soft to allow a gentle interaction with the cloth. The transparency of the edges will let through the color of the cloth, hence not introducing any type of non matched color.
The cells – 16% more power
The Carbon Quick Fix is a reinforced Tough+ with buttons for fitting on Canvas. The Tough+ serie is developed for professional purposes and high-end installations. All models are fitted with Sunpower™ cells with an efficiency of no less than 23.7%, resulting in a high production in relation to the used surface.
Even though mostly placed in sunny areas, partial shadowing is more common than one might consider. The protected Swedish design results in a higher production while a shadow is covering parts of the panel.
Durable long life surface – UV proof
The Carbon Quick Fix is equipped with the same superior materials that have previously been developed for the original Tough series by SUNBEAMsystem. The innovative Tough surface offers a longer lifespan than any other thin and lightweight solar panel. The antislip profile catches more light in low sun angles. In addition, the dirt repellent properties also improve daily production by helping to keep the panels clean by rain.
The exotic materials used allows us to offer a unique 5-years warranty.

SUNBEAMsystem supplier for The Ocean Cleanup
“OceanCleanup” is the largest clean up project in history – an heroic effort to try and save our oceans!
SUNBEAMsystem is a proud supplier of solar panels for “OceanCleanup”.
Boyan Slat recently presented a breakthrough in the development of The OceanCleanup. Due to improvements in the design the system is going to be functional in 2018, two years earlier than planned. Also, the efficiency of the system has gone up significantly. Previous estimations show 42% of all existing plastic being cleaned from the oceans within 10 years. But more recent calculations suggest 50% within 5 years is possible.
This big leap in feasibility is largely due to two fundamental changes. Previously the plan was to build one large system, permanently anchored in the seabed. Now work is being done on a modular design based on sea anchors. This means the project can start with an initial group of smaller systems, drastically lowering the startup costs. It also allows the systems do drift on the currents which also carry the plastic. Interestingly this increases the overall performance since the systems now naturally gravitate towards plastic ‘hot spots’.
Each cleanup location can feature up to 50 smaller subsystems. To track their position and collect data, each system is equipped with a GPS-tracker and multiple sensors. The batteries for these electronics will be charged by solar panels. And these solar panels have to pass high requirements due to the demanding circumstances at sea. Standard ‘glass panels’ like you see on rooftops are therefore far from suited. In their search for a supplier with experience in applying solar panels in marine environments our paths crossed and SUNBEAMsystem is proud to write: we are supplier of OceanCleanup!
The current design features Tough 18W Flush panels, high-efficiency solar panels specifically designed for maritime purposes. The durable Tough surface is resistant to saltwater and strong UV radiation and the Flush cables on the backside of the panels allow for ‘invisible’ internal connection to the regulators. No unnecessary luxury: the solar panels are mounted directly on the floaters and will continuously be in contact with the seawater.
For The Ocean Cleanup it’s the perfect solution for one of the many challenges in cleaning our oceans of plastic. For us, SUNBEAMsystem, an honor to participate in this project to save the Oceans.
Do you also want to support The OceanCleanup?

Adventurer and SAS captain Johan Wiklund arrives safely to Capetown after his seven weeks long journey in a 80 year old “Moth”. The journey that started at Nordkap included many adventures like beeing put in prison in Egypt accused of beeing a spy because of his webcam.
Navigation was done like in the old days. The only electronic onboard was Johan’s mobile phone and the communication radio which was powered by a SUNBEAMsystem solar panel mounted on the curved wing (in front of the pilot seat)
