That was what a German based Solar Company showed up with at the SPI in Las Vegas. On the race to bring down the price of electric power from renewable systems, the companies here on the Solar Power International are exhibiting many new items. With higher efficiency of the solar modules and saving material on the structures, the investment to build up a solar farm goes down more and more and the cost per kW/h is already beyond 5 Cent. But now the Company Galaxy Energy presented a ground mount system which goes into another direction. "Time is money" And so they developed the fastest mounting system in the world. They are claiming that with 24 workers they can build up one Megawatt a day. So this is about five times faster than all the others can do, the CEO Georg Schöll explains. To be fast is not only to save labor cost, the main benefit are for the investors and EPCs. At the bottom line this can bring down the price of output power to 3 Cent per kW/h. What amazing.
Visit Booth #2886 at AWEA Windpower, May 22-25 in Anaheim, CA to see how Parker products, systems and services help you raise performance while reducing risk in wind energy environments.
Parker has been on the forefront of windpower for over two decades, with solutions that touch virtually every critical function in the turbine. From integrated lube oil filtration systems and sealing technologies that make drive trains more reliable and bearings operate like new to compact blade pitch actuation systems that maximize rotor efficiency and minimize vibrations in the turbine. Parker has the solutions that make today's advanced and sophisticated wind power plants better and smarter. Case in point? Our high efficiency power conversion systems that deliver optimum power to the grid. While our scalable evaporative cooling system lowers overall system cost with up to 40% higher power throughput.
