For this installation, AET’s engineering team had to account for 145 miles per hour wind load, a higher than average wind load for solar systems. Utilising AET’s Rayport-G ECO wind tunnel test, the company was able optimise the posts of the system to save on cost.

Ronald Hopgood, division manager of Rosendin, added: “AET was a clear choice for this project because of their experience in managing and delivering utility-scale projects.  AET’s system is backed by their expert engineering and wind tunnel analysis, making their system an ideal fit for the unique site conditions of this project.”
