PV Solar Tensile Cable Mounting Structure Solution


This unique tensile steel cable mounting system for ground photovoltaic plants is internationally patented by A+SunSystems and available from Valsa Trading for the African market. The power generated by this solution depends on the size and the number of PV solar panels used in the installation. 

Steel wire ropes are anchored at the edges of the structure. The anchorages provide an easy way to tension the steel wire ropes, to anchor the frame and to keep the steel cables lifted at the desired height.

Photovoltaic panels are hooked onto the steel wire ropes with special hooks for a quick and easy installation. The solution is suitable for standard crystalline solar panels and thin film panels.

There are various mounting structure applications available:

  Standard ground application 
  Pitched ground application 
 Vineyards and Orchard applications
 Elevated ground application 
 Landfill application 
  Quarry application 
  Custom made solution with no limits

All the mounting structures meet structural engineering requirements and have been designed and manufactured to International standards and are in line with SANS regulations.

 

Characteristics 

Versatility


The application has no limits and can easily be adapted to the profile of the land.
The need for geological analysis, land preparation and soil levelling are drastically reduced. 
 

Design


The custom-made solution easily adapts to the contour of the land and is suitable for pitched and elevated ground, vineyards, orchards, landfills and quarry applications as well as any other custom requirement.
Once the anchors are fixed to the ground the cable is stretched and tensioned and the PV solar panels are placed in position.
The pitched and elevated ground installations have anchors fixed on the side.

Compact and ultra-light only 2kg/m².
Easy to transport due to reduced weight and fast to install.
Proven resistance to wind (dynamometric tests).


Quarry Installations


Anchor points are fixed at the top and the bottom.
There is minimum fixing to the intermedium wall and a reduced anchorage depth is required. 


Landfill Installations

 Anchor points outside the landfill area are used.


Vineyard and orchard installations   

     

Installations uses the anchor points on the table with minimum ground penetration. 

Flexible


Flexible universal design adapts to the profile of the land and is suitable for all standard crystalline and thin film solar panels.Flexible universal design adapts to the profile of the land and is suitable for all standard crystalline and thin film solar panels.

 
Cost effective
Provides great results. 

Tools
No need for ramming machines, simple jack hammers are used to plant the piles and for fixing the anchors to the ground.

Maintenance
Once installed the system requires minimum maintenance. 

Warranty 10 years.
