Powerway develops an Anti-subsidence PV Mounting System for a 2 MW landfill project in Malaysia

Completion of the 2 MW landfill project in Malaysia is expected by the end of May 2012, with annual electricity output of approximately 2.92 million KW/H

Recently, Powerway's newly developed anti-subsidence PV mounting system has won great interest in Malaysia, where it is expected to be applied to a landfill-based 2MW solar plant. The system has gained professional recognition from Panasonic Malaysia and the developer, Ditrolic Sdn. Bhd., the largest EPC company in Malaysia.


The PV industry recognizes that large-scale plants require large areas of land. For this reason, investors prefer lower-value properties such as salt land, landfill and marshland, with abundant radiation but low rental costs, like farmland.

However, PV developers are always concerned with the safety problems of such unstable soil types. Powerway, as the first Chinese solar farm builder to invent anti-subsidence PV structures, is pioneering landfill-tailored plant designs, winning the confidence of the companies involved with PV power plants.

"This design is suitable in most countries which have special requirements to deal with backfill soil areas," said Peter, the developer of the anti-subsidence PV mounting system. "This unique design stands out with four features: free connected parts, fool-proof installation, 20% material reduction and height-adjustability. There is no doubt that this advanced structural system could be widely applied in Asian countries."

Completion of the 2 MW landfill project in Malaysia is expected by the end of May 2012, with annual electricity output of approximately 2.92 million KW/H.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
