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.

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

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide - the ultimate solution for fast and easy installation of the rail-less RockIt racking system on composition shingle roofs. Smart Slide conforms to UL 441 and TAS 100 (A)-95 for wind and wind-driven rain, providing a super-strong watertight seal that is achieved through compression, in most cases without the need for additional sealant. The waterproofing sealant is embedded deep into the granules of the shingle, thanks to the integrated flexible foam layer that provides cushioning. This ensures a secure fit that conforms to any architectural-style shingle. With UltraGrip Technology™, you can rely on a secure installation, as it absorbs the movement created by thermal expansion and contraction. The pre-installed sealing pads are compatible with all composition shingle roofs, making it the ideal choice, even in ambient temperatures as low as 5 degrees.
