This was a very complex tracker design, the Axone Duo from PVH, which rotates with the sun during the day to maximise both energy and monetary gain for the customer. Our team took care of the mechanical and electrical installation, including ramming and seating the structure with PV modules, cabling and grounding.
16 MW PV project in Italy completed
In recent weeks, a project with a total installed capacity of 16 MWp has been completed near the ancient Italian town of Ferrara, located between Venice and Bologna.
One of the difficult tasks was to measure the minimum deviation of the structure measured by the laser. To give you an idea, on a 56 meter tracker, the tolerance was 1 cm, which is also the ultimate limit that can be measured with a laser. More than a hundred workers took turns on the work during the project, depending on the current activity and specialisation, often having to deal with high temperatures of around 40°C in the shade for the 3 months of installation.
As this was a pilot Greenbuddies project in Italy, we faced many administrative hurdles at the beginning, but in dealing with them we gained experience that we will use in the future. We believe that this collaboration with a challenging client has prepared us perfectly for working on the next seven projects starting in Italy, and we hope to increase this number in the future!
Every month in the Newsletter we bring you tips and interesting facts about photovoltaics and charging infrastructure in general. You will find out news about our projects, collaborations, as well as the internal life of Greenbuddies.
