The owner of this Hanse 575 decided on a full-black custom SP Series solar system, which was neatly integrated into the teak deck and provides a modern look.
As the yacht was far away from any of our technicians, a sister ship was digitized to ensure a perfect fit. 1:1 paper templates of the system design were then sent to the owner for a final check. This revealed that the teak pattern of the other Hanse 575 was slightly different, resulting in a couple of corrections. Without the templates it would have been impossible to find these issues prior to production of the solar panels.
As our pre-mounted adhesive is not a good solution for installation on teak, the panels have been installed using a thin layer Sikaflex, smoothly applied over the full surface. All wires run invisibly below the panels in the salon roof and from there to the batteries.
