Suports will supply 1 MW of its rooftop structures to a project located in Merida (Yucatan), Mexico
Valencia, April 9th, 2019. Suports, division of Gonvarri Steel Services, has reached an agreement with SOLAR180 (www.solar180.mx) to supply 1 MW of its rooftop structures for a project located in Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. This new contract reinforces the confidence that SOLAR180 has placed in Suports products, with more than 50 contracts signed between both companies.
The structure and anchoring will accommodate a total of 2889 solar PV modules on 3 different buildings, which forced Suports to consider the use of different solutions, included in its catalogue, in order to satisfy each of the rooftops requirements. This means that Suports will supply inclined structure (Basic Tilted System at 13º -for 1 and 2 heights-) and flat structure (Basic Flat System).
Of special relevance is one of these systems, the ECO Basic Coplanar System, specifically designed by Suports for KR-18 metal roof covers. 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.
