Who doesn’t love a rave review? We recently installed the Integrel system on a Neel 51 trimaran in La Rochelle. Our customer is delighted with the result.
Take a read…
“Integrel Solutions and in particular the team of technicians responsible for the Integrel Generator Replacement Technology are not your normal marine technicians. They are more like the technicians you’d find working on nuclear submarines or on advanced fighter jets. Their knowledge, experience and expertise are simply head and shoulders above everyone else. Initially, our boat builder was skeptical about Integrel’s technology and we were met with resistance. But after a few days everyone was not only interested in their technology but impressed with their knowledge and expertise. They were able to handle every question, concern and issue that came up during the installation.
The Integrel team designed, delivered, wired and installed the Integrel alternator, touch screen and LI battery bank on our boat. Like every installation we expected there to be challenges but this one went off without a hitch. They took care of every detail. They outfitted each battery on the boat with a state of charge sensor connected to the Integrel touch screen and also built custom platforms to hold the LI batteries once they decided where they should be placed. I was not expecting that. Once the system was installed they ran through hours of tests and evaluation and even remained in France for several days to ensure that everything was perfect. I couldn’t have asked or hoped for anything more from these guys.
Four months later I’d like to report that our Integrel system is one of the favourite parts of our boat. On our previous boat I spent the majority of my free time dealing with generator issues and vowed that if I ever got another boat I would never again have a traditional generator. Integrel allowed me to realise that dream. It “simply works” as advertised.
Every time we run the engine we produce electrical power that gets stored in the battery bank and when combined with our solar panels we don’t worry too much about power. Our old generator also weighed 270kg. For a boat like ours, a sailing trimaran, the Integrel system just makes sense. Weight reduction means a faster boat.
So in conclusion we are very happy with our Integrel experience and customer service. I email them almost every week to report observations or to just ask silly questions. I get a response every time. My recommendation to anyone thinking about replacing a generator or trying to decide if they want a generator is to call Integrel. Talk to them about their technology, cost, and installation. You’ll be happy that you did. Working with them has been a great experience all around and we recommend them highly.” – Bob P, Integrel Solutions customer
