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.
