The Suports division of Gonvarri Steel Services has reached an agreement with SOLAR180 to supply 1 MW of rooftop structures for a project in Merida, in Yucatan, Mexico.
The contract reinforces the confidence SOLAR180 has placed in Suports products, with more than 50 contracts signed between the companies.
The structure and anchoring will accommodate a total of 2,889 solar PV modules on three buildings, which forced Suports to consider the use of different solutions, included in its catalog, to satisfy each of the rooftop requirements. This means that Suports will supply inclined structure – Basic Tilted System at 13 degrees for one and two heights – and flat structure, its Basic Flat System.
Of special relevance is one of the systems, the ECO Basic Coplanar System, specifically designed by Suports for KR-18 metal roof covers. The ECO Basic Coplanar System is the simplest solution for this kind of roof covers, as it uses one single element to fix the structure to the cover and to anchor the PV module, proving a superior robustness along with a simpler assembly, according to installers of the solar sector.
