Case Study: a 50kWp solar PV array in challenging conditions

Background

JPCS used Groundscrew® to install a 50kWp solar PV array in challenging conditions.

  • Client: Microgeneration for Robin Hanbury-Tenison
  • Location: Cabilla Manor, Bodmin
  • Date: 16th August 2011 – 19th August 2011
  • Project size: 50kWp
  • Groundscrews used: 88
  • FLEXIII Framing: 110m
  • Modules: 212
  • Trenching: Completed by the landowner

Challenges

The solar pv arrays needed be installed on a 10° sloping field in which we encountered large granite boulders.

Outcomes

Our solar pv installation team dug the system neatly into the slope of the field to keep the panel heights successfully within the planning approval.

“The Krinner Groundscrew® system installed for my 50kW field mounted PV array by JPCS has been impressive. Both the speed and accuracy of the actual installation and the efficiency and steadiness of the system, now that the PV panels have been attached, are outstanding. I cannot recommend them enough as the best way to go.” — Robin Hanbury-Tenison (author and explorer)
