Wind and Solar Solutions for Marine Applications

Wind Power

Welcome to the UK’s longest established renewable energy company. We are ready to share our wealth of experience in wind and solar energy to guide you to the best on board energy solution for your needs.

We are delighted with our Marlec 1200 wind generator.  The other day it was outputting 10 Amps at 24V which on its own fully charged our batteries.  We are very much less reliant on our generator to top up the batteries.  The Marlec generator has operated flawlessly since the day I installed it.  D Mason – Owner of a Rutland 1200 marine system

Choose from our range of 3 Rutland marine turbines to best suit your boat’s energy needs

Benefits of a Rutland turbine on board

  • They operate quietly and efficiently in the background as you sail or when moored up.
  • Using a Rutland will cut down if not eliminate engine running time and expense.
  • Fuel consumption and engine maintenance will fall.
  • There will be no more need for expensive mains hook ups on your travels.
    … and well charged and cycled batteries will last you many more years.

Choose from our range of high quality framed and semi flexible marine solar panels

Benefits of solar on board

  • To be laid or fixed to a surface/deck.
  • Ideal for when deck space is at a premium
  • When used on a temporary basis they can be moved into the sun and away from shade
  • Lightweight and flexible
  • Can be walked on in boating shoes
  • Simple to remove and store
  • Solid framed modules to be mounted using mounting kits or by other means.
  • Solid mount above deck reduces shading from overhead objects
  • Allows for larger arrays and therefore greater power consumption
  • Combine our windchargers with our excellent quality solar panels and have energy all year round.

Conveniently combine a Rutland turbine with solar panels for power night and day

Benefits of wind & solar on board

  • Be energy independent on board
  • Better year round reliable power generation
  • Ideal for long distance cruising for dual redundancy
  • Take advantage of the best power generation available whatever your location
  • More balanced charge into batteries for longer life expectancy
