In 2016, the SAF has a requirement to store sensitive equipment in ISO containers left in the open. The equipment stored is heat sensitive but yet the location where they are stored has no electrical power supply.
Our company came out with a design whereby we designed an ISO container that is insulated and powered by DC air-conditioner. These air-conditioner are solar powered and is designed to keep the equipment stored below 35 degree C as well as to reduce the humidity within the containers. We incorporated an alarm system to sound when the temperature exceeded that level and a data logger to monitor the temperature at all times.
Solar panels are mounted on the roof of the ISO container to power the air-conditioning system. Tie down points are also incorporated to secure the containers when needed.
In total, we supplied 11 units to all the various SAF camps in Singapore.
