TRAILAR are the leader in solar transport technology, with the mission to make commercial vehicles ‘greener’ by reducing environmental impact. Ultra-thin solar mats are fitted onto the roof space of existing or new vehicles. The solar mats are connected to the TRAILAR smart charge controller which monitors the electrical requirement and delivers energy to on-board batteries in 2 modes, ensuring optimal performance whilst the vehicle is both operational and inactive.

These four new DAF vehicles can be used standalone or can be scaled up to work together – while still providing more cost and energy efficiencies than a traditional OB truck. They have been designed to fill all styles of production; traditional, remote surface, full remote, cloud and simplified production. All equipment purchases for these new vehicles have factored in power efficiency, weight and size. All four are fitted with TRAILAR solar technology. Enhanced with an Essential Charge system providing separate power to the independent power unit whilst the TRAILAR Smart controller regulates charge going into the vehicle battery, TRAILAR provides a new clean solar energy source for the vehicle to power various on-board electrical activities and components such as monitors, radio, lights and many more. In addition the solar energy generated will also support and remove the need for vehicles to idle whilst in operation.

Sean Mulhern, EMG UK’s Chief Technology Innovation Officer, said,

We have been engaged in conversations with our clients to identify the most cost-effective and energy efficient solutions for each type of production. These remote production vehicles have been specifically designed with efficiency and sustainability at their core, at a time when broadcasters are becoming more open to the possibilities of remote production. We continue to make every effort to seek out opportunities and take concrete action to improve our sustainability record, while fully supporting our customers’ needs. As a business we have a great passion for innovation so when the opportunity was presented to us to work with award winning innovative technology to build on our green culture we couldn’t turn it down.”
