Charlotte, NC, September 13, 2019. Less material per kW of installed capacity, a faster assembly and a higher load capacity: The Schletter Group introduces the next generation of its ground mount system FS at the Solar Power International (SPI) fair in Salt Lake City. The manufacturer of solar mounting solutions with international operations thus continues its innovation campaign, which focuses on yield optimization based on smart design decisions.
20 percent span increase possible
Quick and cost-effective installation without drilling
Modules mounted without ladders and lifting platforms
Structural safety and geological survey
Tracking system for bifacial modules
In addition to the new FS Gen 3, the Schletter Group will also present a version of its tracking system that has been optimized for bifacial modules at the SPI. The Schletter Tracker was launched in 2018 and has since been installed in Europe, Africa and Australia. Its specific design includes a patented, mechanical self-locking system: there is a mechanical locking element on each post, which locks automatically if the row is not moved. This eliminates all wind-induced vibrations (so-called galloping effect) for the entire row. When in the resting position, the system therefore has the characteristics and resilience of a fixed installation, suitable for wind speeds of up to 260 km/h. There is a mechanically locking element on each post, which locks automatically if the row is not moved.
The Schletter Group presents itself at SPI in Salt Lake City, September 23-26, booth 5407.
