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.

Publications

  • Photovoltaics International 23rd Edition

    This issue of Photovoltaics International, our 23rd, offers key insights into some of the technologies that are ready to move from lab to fab in support of these goals. ISC Konstanz offer a glimpse of what the low-cost, high-efficiency solar cells of the future might look like. On page 35 the institute’s authors give an overview of what they call Konstanz’ “technology zoo”, encompassing their so-called BiSoN, PELICAN and ZEBRA cell concepts, all of which are aimed at increasing energy yield at the lowest possible cost.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2013 Production Annual

    In the ever-changing global solar markets, cost reduction and measures to increase cell efficiencies are the key tools available to PV manufacturers to create new opportunities and drive your business to the next level. Manufacturing the Solar Future 2013 is the third in the Photovoltaics International PV Production Annual series, delivering the next instalment of in-depth technical manufacturing information on PV production processes designed to help you gain the competitive edge.
