Ground screw foundations for a 50kW ground mounted solar array system, on agricultural land in rural Angus.
Situated in an exposed area of Angus with high wind speeds, it was imperative to provide a solid foundation to cope with the significant uplift forces to the solar array and provide maximum stability.
Speed of installation and minimum environmental impact on the existing land was also important to the client.
Pre-installation survey included site-specific testing to measure the tensile force of ground screws, ensuring the correct specification to meet with performance requirements. 66 nr. ground screws were installed in two parallel lines, completely level and ready for the ValkField framework.
With no need for multiple trades, work could be streamlined and completed within four working days, ready for the Solar PV panels to be installed without delay.
