For more than 60 years CMR offers control and supervision tools in the following sectors: energy, industry and marine. CMR uses its own intelligent sensors and automation systems.

CMR account nearly than 700 employees in 12 countries. The group product solutions for the areas of energy, industry and marine, by integrating its own smart sensors.

CMR develops a wide range of tools for its users, from individualized service to design of products. warrants that all of its services maintain the latest regulations and other quality certifications.


CMR is directed towards the sector of renewable energies. The goal is to submit tools and reliable services to its buyers , by adding digitization, now unavoidable .

Aware of importance of its domain of activity, CMR uses processes to protect The world of tomorrow.

For this , the company proposes a permanent line of conduct to all collaborators of the group, regardless their location .

Principle and operation

Hybrid solar panels ensure both photovoltaic electricity production and heat production in a same module. For a reduced footprint, it is thus possible to heat your domestic hot water and to consume or resell its renewable electricity.

Hybrid solar panels constitute an alternative to thermal (heat production) and photovoltaic (electricity production) solar panels. They offer the possibility reduce space by superimposing a photovoltaic solar panel (above) and a solar panel thermal (soffit).

This alliance is pleasant because it improves the yield at the level of the photovoltaic part of the order of 10%. Indeed , when photovoltaic solar panels are subjected to strong heat, they lose their efficiency in measures quite strong ( up to -25% yield occasionally). The solar thermal panel helps therefore to the cooling of the photovoltaic panel.

Development of intelligent systems for solar and hybrid solutions


Energy, industrial and marine companies are studying intensively renewable, low carbon sources of energy. Our wish is to facilitate access to these renewable energies. How? 'Or' What ? By shaping hybrid and microgrid solutions, which maximize energy and storage efficiency.


We design intelligent instrumentation and automation systems for a cleaner world in the areas of energy, industry and marine. Since 1959, we assemble services innovative and also tailor-made tools: intelligent sensors, monitoring systems advanced and automation. All these products are dedicated to energy, industry and the marine industry.


Our values ​​ are those that direct our operations and advance our business. United, all employees who constitute our teams support our values ​​ and work ardently to promote them.

In addition to this, we educate our employees about the use of energy resources and limit consumption of & # 039; water, energy or even paper (recycling, communications, ...).

Energy and education are the guidelines of CSR policy. CMR is committed to deploy its own environmental and social project activities. All employees are committed in this challenge CSR.

CMR auscultates every year its carbon footprint for decrease it. Actions to perfect the transport of raw materials and finished products are at the heart of its concerns.

CMR auscultates the life cycle of its products as well as the composition of raw materials to perfect waste recycling. The R & amp; D department concentrates its efforts on the integration of sustainable development at all levels of the company .

We produce and deliver turnkey solar or hybrid power plants for micro-grid, industrial or grid-connected installations.

La solution HYDROS developed by CMR makes it possible to hybridize diesel generator installations with solar production and also storage.

The metamorphosis of thermal power plants into hybrid plants brings many benefits to the customers of these facilities:

  • »Significant reduction in consumption of fuels
  • »Strong decrease in CO2 emissions
  • »Gain in competitiveness on the tariff of the electricity produced
  • » mitigation in maintenance costs .

Our HYLIOS solution is mainly dedicated for emerging countries largely dependent on thermal production, but presenting significant solar potential.

The complexity of hybrid thermal power plants resides in the dimensioning of the equipment of the thermal part, the storage, and in the piloting. The goal is to ensure a continuous supply of electricity to customers.

Our HYLIOS solution is equipped with an energy flow management and control system, making it possible to meet the consumption of energy needs. This solution is usable for autonomous and nomadic mini-power plants but also for large hybrid ground installations.

Our energy management system offers many features for:

  • » increase electrical efficiency
  • »Decrease the consumption of fuels
  • "" increase self-consumption
