Spanish engineer Isigenere says it can create 1 MW of its virgin high-density polyethylene (HDPE) floating PV mounting systems every five days thanks to a plastic injection production process.

The most up to date model of the item-- Isifloating 4.0-- is based upon a patented double-float layout as well as constructed from plastic frequently utilized for piping, as well as with UV ingredients and also antioxidants. The plastic parts have a minimum 3mm thickness, stated Isigenere.

The tech company claimed the 240kg mounting structures supply minimum wind resistance thanks to wind resistant style which makes certain five-degree photovoltaic panel disposition. The products are said to run in temperatures from -20 to 60 degrees Celsius as well as to be able to stand up to wind rates of up to 180 kmh and also waves of approximately 1m.

Isigenere said the structures can be released with basic devices and equipment and 1 MW of them can be moved in 8 40-foot containers.

The manufacturer has an 80 MW annual production capacity and wants to increase the figure within 4 months.
