Overview

The area of ground for this project is subject to heavy waterlogging, regularly becoming saturated in wet weather.

Ground levels varied up to 550mm across the entire site, including a large dip towards the middle.

A short programme of works was required to provide a rapid resolution and ensure installation would cause minimum disruption to the client.

Solution

Site Survey & Load Testing

Our team completed a pre-installation site survey and site-specific ground tests to check load-bearing capacities, ensuring solar panels would be securely anchored and capable of withstanding uplift forces caused by wind.

Ground Screw Installation

To contend with the ground levels and saturated ground, a range of our 1.5m and longer 2.0m RDX PRO RF140 76mm ground screws were deployed to provide a stable, level foundation that penetrated deep enough to meet the performance requirements of the project.

Installation was completed in five working days, ready for solar PV panels to be installed without delay.

RADIX now has the choice of three ground-mounted solar panel racking systems. Whatever type of solar array you need to be installed, we work with our partners to deliver you an operational system.
