Industrial warehouses and solar power have become an inseparable pair, but roof installations of photovoltaic panels can become problematic: the solution is the varied and versatile range of support ballasts offered by Sun Ballast.
Countless companies all over the world are installing photovoltaic panels, considering it an urgent and crucial need. Among their priorities is limiting the load on the roof: with Sun Ballast structures, they can be assured that their needs will be met.
1) Prosolia Energy, a leader in photovoltaics, has chosen Sun Ballast
Our customer Prosolia Energy has chosen Sun Ballast products for the installation of a major photovoltaic system in Portugal.
A leader in the installation of photovoltaic and solar power systems, Prosolia Energy works in four European countries: Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy. Its activities encompass various phases of the photovoltaic plant installation process, from setup to maintenance, with particular attention paid to post-sales support.
2) A flat roof with two different types of surface
Prosolia Energy has set up a plant of impressive size on the roof of an enormous industrial warehouse. This required careful attention, due to the different types of surface present on the roof.
The construction of this photovoltaic plant, as we can see from images of the project, is in fact divided into two separate zones on the roof with different characteristics. It was crucial to keep these differences in mind during the design and installation phases of the plant.
The first part of the installation, made on sheathing, covered the largest part of the surface: in this case, it was important that the plant be very sturdy while also not putting too much weight on the roof.
The second section of the roof presented completely different issues: a gravel surface, irregular roof, and limited installation space.
In this case, the customer needed to fully optimise the limited available installation space on the roof to achieve their predefined production goals.
