29th MARATHON DES SABLES : 2014
iLAND to power the 29th Marathon des Sables
March 18, 2014
iLand Green technologies SA is proud to announce to have renewed its partnership with the MDS 2014 and will be supplier of clean and silent power to the MDS in 2014 and 2015. The 29th Marathon des Sables 2014http://www.marathondessables.com/en/ takes place from April 4th until April 14th 2014 in Marokko. The MDS is one of the most challenging ultra marathons in the world.
Patrick Bauer, Founder and Director of MDS said, "The partnership with iLAND is very meaningful for MDS because it illustrates a value we've upheld for nearly 30 years: respect for the environment. The way that iLAND solutions fit in with our logistics proves that they can adapt themselves to any ordeal. The company's references inspired our trust, but now we're totally convinced!"
Besides the well known solar power generators like TUBE's, TREK's, FLY's and BIGBOXE's iLand has this year a solar dessert 6x6 Truck which will provide energy for the nomadic camp and gives more mobility to carry power to the check points or for urgent intervention for the hospital etc. The Truck carries BIGBOXES and solar panels on the top and the side walls and with its 1kW peak it can supply one quarter to a third of the energy needed.
Another new iLand technology is the inflatable solar farms, without noise and pollution in the dessert but producing silent and clean energy. Those farms will be setup around the stage camps each day of the race.
The whole equipment will support about 3'000Wh peak of power, in one day in the desert it can produces 24'000Wh or 24kWh of energy. We use solar panels as cover for the head quarters, field hospital, etc.
Additional we will have TUBE's at the checks points and for the security people around the base camp as well as TREK's for official person (mobility in the 4x4, not in the base camp) and for sure a lot of FLY's for the runners!!!!
iLAND's Founder and CEO, Daniele Oppizzi, observed: "MDS is a particularly interesting terrain to apply our different solutions: both for individuals, like MDS competitors, and organizations with more complicated requirements. On 2014, we'll be optimizing our energy supply apparatus and presenting technological innovations in operating conditions, while keeping our sights on MDS 2015, for which we're planning an exceptional package."
iLAND Green Technologies SA wishes all the best for all participants of the MDS 2014.
MARATHON DES SABLES 2013
A NEW SUCCESS FOR ILAND!
Sunday ended the 28th Marathon des Sables. ILAND did not take holidays in Morocco but was present for several reasons:
To demonstrate that it’s possible to electrify an international event with solar energy. The result was surprising; ILAND not only honoured its mission, but produces more energy than what was requested.
The ILAND products have perfectly resisted at all climate attacks. With temperatures of 55 degrees measured, sandstorms, daily moving location, transport in hold local tracks, etc., but our products have perfectly functioned from the first to the last day.
SOLAR MODULES: with temperatures of 85 degrees measured on the solar panels, it could be expected, as with most other technologies, which our solar panels do not produce so well! With ILAND MODULES we planned with less than 80 amps current but we were producing 150 daily! Production was even better as planned! No other technology allows a better success!
BIGBOX: our new Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries were also surprising. Displayed and transported in all places of the base camp, they functioned even during sandstorms. Unlike lead acid batteries, they perfectly resist to high temperatures and they provide incredible services: an hospital surgery was performed urgently thanks our BIGBOX and our lighting systems. This material has proved even to be better than the traditional! The BIGBOX provided energy for the media tents, emails computer, runner phones, command station, webcams and general lighting for tents and finish line.
TUBE: the TUBEs were highly appreciated by security team. Easily transportable, they were able to move around the camp to install lighting systems and charging devices.
TREK: the TREK was also appreciated for the charge of mobile portable phones.
FLY: finally, the FLY with a weight of 150g was recognise from the competitors for the charge of a phones or cameras. Note that the FLY must be equipped with an additional battery (60g) with some protected devices
We already tested ILAND products in the North, but not in so extreme conditions, with high temperatures, daily trips, dust everywhere, etc...
With the Marathon des Sables, ILAND have a new record to it credit: to be the first solar developer into the world to propose autonomous mobile solutions for global events, in the North or in South place of the world !
