Oceanic Solar-Powered Buoys

The 'ConSolight' Offers Offshore Guides Swimmers, Divers and More

— May 30, 2018 — Tech
The conceptual 'ConSolight' has been designed as an impressive piece of equipment for seaside communities to integrate into their waters to ensure optimal safety at anytime of day.

The buoys work by integrating solar panels on the top portion that will charge up the integrated battery pack to power the unit once the sun has set. The unit will offer LED illumination above the water's surface, but also features a hanging lantern below the water level to offer divers and swimmers guidance if they're partaking in aquatic activities after dark.

The conceptual 'ConSolight' is the design work of Hakan Gürsu of Designnobis and has a durable build that doesn't require maintenance to ensure it can withstand years in the water before needing to be replaced.
Trend Themes
1. Oceanic Safety Equipment - The integration of solar-powered buoys with LED illumination and underwater lanterns enhances safety for swimmers and divers, presenting opportunities for innovation in water safety devices.
2. Renewable Energy Innovation - The technological development of solar-powered buoys with integrated battery packs presents an opportunity for innovation in renewable energy applications for devices with longevity in water-based environments.
3. Sustainability in Marine Recreation - The integration of solar-powered buoys for lighting and guidance in water-based activities allows for greater sustainability measures, presenting opportunities for businesses to market eco-friendly recreational equipment.
Industry Implications
1. Water Safety Equipment - The incorporation of solar-powered buoys presents an opportunity for manufacturers of water safety equipment to develop sustainable devices for marine environments.
2. Renewable Energy - The integration of solar-powered buoys for illumination and guidance in water-based activities provide opportunities for renewable energy companies to develop sustainable and durable devices for marine environments.
3. Marine Recreation - The integration of sustainable and innovative solar-powered buoys presents opportunities for marine recreation businesses to develop eco-friendly equipment for their customers while enhancing safety measures in the water.
