Supply and installation of ground screw foundations for a 50kW Solar PV system in a wind-exposed area of Angus, Scotland.
Situated on a farm in rural Angus with large areas of open ground, a solid foundation was required to cope with the significant uplift and horizontal forces to the solar array and provide maximum stability.
Speed of installation was also important to the client so that business operations could continue as normal.
A pre-installation survey was carried out with site-specific testing to measure the tensile force of ground screws, ensuring the correct specification of ground screws to meet with performance requirements.
56 RADIX Ground Screws were installed in two parallel lines, with a Van der Valk frame system installed after, all ready for immediate mounting of Solar PV modules.
All work was streamlined and completed within three working days.
