photovoltaic structures

TANK PV© – Photovoltaic Solar Supports

We design and produce photovoltaic structures with ground fixing, facades, rooftops, shades and floating PV (on lakes).

Photovoltaic structures represent the supports for photovoltaic panels. These photovoltaic panels can be with an aluminum frame with a thickness of between 30 mm and 45 mm, or photovoltaic panels with double glass without frames.

Below are our structure systems available for ground-mounted power plants:

Due to the location, the field configuration, the geotechnical study, the model of the panels and the favorite electric strings, ground-mounted photovoltaic tables are of several kinds, shapes and configurations. In this regard, we present below the models most often delivered in Europe.

TANK PV© – SPEED ONE support system for photovoltaic panels with 1 sectional pole and 2 panels mounted in portrait format (vertically)

The structure is a single pole, which is generally rammed into ground by pile driving equipment Gayk, Pauselli. Two photovoltaic panels in portrait format are mounted in the section.

Two photovoltaic panels in landscape format are mounted in the section. This system has a reduced shading area.
This system is not used in large photovoltaic parks because of the high cost, but is widely used in the very long ranges of old photovoltaic parks.
The structure can also be used to mount just one landscape panel.

TANK PV© – MAX ONE support system for photovoltaic panels with 1 sectional pole and 4 panels mounted in landscape format (horizontally). This is an extremely sturdy and economical structure, considering that it supports 4 landscape panels. Additionally, because it is easy to mount and quickly reduces your installation costs.

TANK PV© – TECH TWO supporting 2-pole photovoltaic panels system. This system is more stable and can be used in any area and on any type of land.
The system supports in section the installation of several photovoltaic panels as follows:

  • 2 portrait panels (inclination angle 10-45 degrees);
  • 3 portrait panels (inclination angle 10-25 degrees);
  • 3 landscape panels (inclination angle 10-35 degrees);
  • 4 landscape panels (inclination angle 10-30 degrees);
  • 5 landscape panels (inclination angle 10-25 degrees);
  • 6 landscape panels (inclination angle 10-20 degrees);
  • 7 landscape panels (10-15 degree inclination) – in tests

TANK PV© – BETON support system for photovoltaic panels specially designed for areas with difficult terrain such as soft soil, sandy soil, stony soil, rock, seaside area with extremely salty sandy soil, unpalatable soil or no sufficient static load possible to have from soil.

This TANK PV© – BETON system is based on precast and precast concrete supports. These supports are placed on the ground, after which the galvanized metal structure is built above them.

The ideal configuration is for mounting photovoltaic panels in a section of 3 landscape panels (horizontal). On the pictures below the structure is installed directly on the sand on the beach at the Black Sea.

TANK PV© – AXLE ONE is for 3 photovoltaic panels placed in the landscape. All fixed to a 1-pole rotating metal structure (C210). Rotation is done automatically, with server data, after the sun’s position with hydraulic or electrical actuators.

TANK PV© – EAST WEST structure system on land is one of the best system existing.

This system best covers the ground because it does not need the shading area. It only requires maintenance passage.

The production curve is no longer the dome type as we have at south-facing structures. For the East West system, the production curve is flattened as a trapezoid.

Photovoltaic panels can be configured in a portrait or landscape panel section of up to 6 landscape panels.

We can design, draw and produce any desired pattern of structure.
The strength and stability analysis was made using the analytical and numerical analysis (finite element method), using Graitec – Advance Design Version 2019 SP2.
The following standards were used to assess the loads acting on the structure and strength and stability of the photovoltaic structure:

  • EN 1990: 2002 – Basis of structural design;
  • EN 1991-1-1: 2002 – Actions on structures. Part 1-1: General actions – Densities, self-weight, imposed loads for buildings;
  • EN 1991-1-4: 2005 / NA – Actions on structures. General actions. Wind Action. National Annex;
  • EN 1991-1-3: 2003 / NA Actions on structures. General actions. Charging due to snow. National Annex;
  • EN 1993-1-1: 2005 – Design of steel structures. Part 1-1: General rules and rules for buildings. Protection Status
