It began on an island in the Baltic

Harsh rains, strong winds – and lots of sun. Our design office is located on the Aland Islands, a centre of innovation right in the middle of the Baltic Sea. It was here that the idea of a new way to harness solar energy was born.

Our origins

HelioZenit Ab was founded on the Aland Islands in 2008 from a spin-off project of a company specialising in the storage of solar energy on a household scale.

Aland is not only our home base, but has also been an important test market during our start-up and growth phases. Aland has the highest amount of sun hours per year in Scandinavia, but also severe storms and cold winters with a lot of ice and snow. Our products have been designed and built to withstand extreme weather conditions and have successfully passed actual real life field tests.

Our idea

In order to get maximum output from the sun, solar panels should always be directed straight towards the sun; not only at noon, but constantly tracking the sun from sunrise until sunset. This principle is used by many large utility solar stations.

The Heliomotion Solar Power Plant is a light version of the utility trackers, designed to provide smaller businesses and private homes with an extremely efficient, affordable and easy way to generate their own renewable energy.  Heliomotion can be used singly, or in quantity as a microgrid to power farms, breweries and other businesses.

Heliomotion is designed to be easily assembled and installed in less than a day by an installer or the customer, with help from an experienced electrician.  Heliomotion can be delivered as a complete installation kit on one pallet, including a detailed, illustrated installation manual, or the customer can obtain panels and inverters from his installer.
