    Hello,
    my group and I are currently developing a design for the washdown station,
    we are unsure about power, where it comes from and how it is collected.
    when doing our design do we just refer to the 4.3 topic detailing a washdown stations power source and the average requirements (1-4Kw).
    If so, do we make sure our project is below 4Kw?
    Thank you
    Kind Regards

    Hi Shaun,

    In your design you should assume that the unit will need it’s own power; whether this is drawn from a solar array, a turbine, a diesel gen etc – this is your decision to make, considering whether this is an appropriate solution given the context.

    As a power source could be integral to the washdown station, I would consider if adding a solar array to your design could aid the end solution?

    Hope this helps,

    Luke

    Hi Luke
    but do we design it ourselves or just say we are getting it through solar paneling developed by EWB groups doing 4.3.

    Thank you
    Kind regards

    You could use either approach, but if you were just going to indicate that you will rely on an energy solution that is being built by a third party, you will need to be very specific in terms of what requirements your wash down station has for energy.
