SOLAR CCTV HELPS FIGHT CRIME

Puurgen's Solar-Powered CCTV solution is being used to assist with the prevention of crime in remote and off-grid locations.

Scotland-based renewable energy start-up Puurgen has installed a solar-powered CCTV system at Scottish Water's site in Aberdeen to help combat fly-tipping.


The system features a vandal-proof dome camera powered by a 180Watt-peak solar power system, which uses Puurgen's innovative maximum power point tracker technology to increase solar capture by up to 40%. The same technology has been used by Puurgen's sister company Clyde Space to power small satellites in space.

The solar-powered CCTV system is completely autonomous and carbon-friendly. No underground channels need to be dug to power the device and the video feed is transmitted via a 2.4GHz wireless link to a nearby secure digital video recorder.

"We are excited about using renewable energy for important environmental challenges such as fly-tipping and are delighted that Scottish Water value the benefit of such a system", said John Charlick, managing director of Puurgen. "Scotland receives 60% of the sun incident at the equator, making solar power an attractive proposition for remote, off-grid and wireless systems."

Puurgen hope to install similar systems for local councils throughout the UK to help reduce fly-tipping and other types of crime.
