Solar park solution provider Clenergy supplied its PV-ezRack SolarTerrace II ground mounting system for a leading energy company in Japan that completed four PV projects totalling 3.3MW in Tokushima (Yoshino-cho, Ishii-cho, Nakakubo and Mima) last autumn. The project and further subsequent cooperation in PV projects have led the two companies into a deeper and wider partnership.
Founded in 1973 and renowned for their technical expertise, the Shikoku-based client is one of most prestigious power plant engineering companies in Japan. The client turned to Clenergy for its comprehensive skill set and proven track record on utility-scale projects.
Given local environmental factors and the possibility of severe earthquakes, Clenergy strengthened the structure of SolarTerrace II’s supports and posts, applying robust T-rails and other components with excellent surface coating to resist local environmental challenges, which include snowstorms and saltwater corrosion.
The high-quality material works in conjunction with an optimized structure to ensure a high level of corrosion resistance and to extend the system’s lifespan. Clenergy uses innovation to help its clients cut costs while ensuring that the system’s overall structural strength satisfies the client’s requirements.
As for service, Clenergy’s local office and China headquarter works closely with the client. The engineering and technical teams tailor solutions for each project according to the specific requirements for tilt angles, post heights, module orientation and snow and wind loads. Remote technical support ensures smooth project installation.
Upon the successful completion of the Tokushima projects, the client commented positively on several aspects of the partnership, especially the efficiency of product installation, short delivery cycle and product quality.
As the two company’s relationship continues to deepen, they have jointly developed a brand-new PV ground mount tracking system, the PV-ezRack PostMount Tracker, which dovetails the strengths of the two companies. The system was launched during April’s PV Expo Tokyo. Based on positive market feedback, the two partners are confident of the new product’s market potential in Japan and the rest of the world.
