    Clenergy has supplied its PV-ezRack SolarTerrace I–B ground mounting system for the 52MW project.

PV mounting system manufacturer Clenergy has helped an unnamed Chinese solar company add 12MW to its 40MW PV project in Jiayuguan, China, supplying its new mounting system for the project.

The 40MW project had been developed over the summer and utilises Clenergy’s new PV-ezRack SolarTerrace I–B ground mounting system. However, following the signing of a contract this summer with the unnamed company, Clenergy agreed to supply additional PV-ezRack SolarTerrace I–B ground mounting systems for the project.

Clenergy’s mounting system was selected due to the location of the project. Jiayuguan, which is located inland in the northwest of China, has good levels of solar irradiance but it experiences severe drought, hot wind erosion and sandstorms. As a result, all PV products used in the project are expected to withstand such challenges including Clenergy’s mounting system.

The system was delivered in pre-assembled parts for quick installation. It features newly patented W clamps to lock the PV panels in place. Furthermore, the system’s material has been strengthened in order to resist local harsh environments. It has a hot-dip zinc surface coating which has a thickness that meets or exceeds 80mu. The rail is made from C-steel, which is recyclable and suitable for any framed solar panels.

  • Photovoltaics International 24th Edition

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
