OPDE gets approval for the construction of two new PV plants in England

With 5MW of capacity each, the projects are located in the counties of Lancashire and Leicestershire. The positive outcome on both solar farms contributes to reinforce the presence of the international company in the UK, where it has already developed and built over 70 MW.

28 December 2015.-The multinational OPDE, who specialise in development, investment and maintenance of photovoltaic farms, has obtained a green light for the construction of two new 5 MW PV plants in England. Both projects will produce the electricity equivalent to the consumption of 2,750 homes.


The solar farms are located in the counties of Lancashire and Leicestershire. This success is a new milestone in OPDE's commitment to strengthen and consolidate its presence in the photovoltaic market in the UK.

OPDE has now grown its development portfolio in the UK to 77 MWp, split between seven projects located mostly in southern England.

OPDE's presence in the UK is part of the already consolidated internationalization strategy of the company. Consequently, OPDE accumulates the development and construction of 225MW in solar photovoltaic farms located in Italy (48.8 MW), UK (77 MW) and Spain (105 MW).

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.
