Dec 5, 2014 - Chinese solar mounting system maker Powerway Renewable Energy Co Ltd said today it was chosen to develop a 20-MW solar farm in Yunnan province.
The solar park, spread over a limestone mountain-side in Dali prefecture, will use Powerway’s mounting systems and foundations. The company will build 20 separate sections, each of a 1-MW capacity.
To overcome the location-related difficulties, which include complicated geography and irregular terrain, the company carried out a survey of the site. It has decided to use customised mounting structures with compound sections that can be adjusted in all directions, combined with cast-in-place piling with pre-drilled ground-screw foundations, which will reduce project costs significantly, Powerway explained.
Yesterday, the firm announced that it will build another mountain-side solar farm at the border between Sichuan, Yunnan and Guizhou provinces. The facility will have a 30-MW installed capacity.
