Solar park maintenance with additional men power

In addition to daily monitoring and fault management, one of the core tasks of the Operation & Maintenance department is annual solar park maintenance. Every solar park in the IBC SOLAR portfolio is put through its paces. The so-called “Health, Safety, Security & Environment Requirements”, or HSSE requirements for short, are decisive for all work in solar parks. The most recent maintenance took place at the Kösten solar park (Germany) – and this time, the Executive Board was also present alongside the O&M team. (more…)

Precise adaptability for any roof

The strongest trend in photovoltaic solutions in recent months is “flexibility”. The announced investments in the creation of energy storage are called a flexible alternative for grid operators; the ultra-flexible form is synonymous with perovskites. And now also the new IBC AeroFix G3 flat roof mounting system, which the brand calls “maximum flexibility”. Let us clarify then – what is the flexibility of in this particular case? – An interview with our colleagues in Poland about IBC AeroFix G3. (more…)

IBC AeroFix G3 – The new IBC SOLAR mounting system

Our in-house mounting system IBC AeroFix has been part of IBC SOLAR for almost a decade now. From the very beginning, a lot of work, time and heart and soul went into the development. And the effort was worth it, because our mounting system for flat roofs has proven over the years what it is made of. From its stability in the strongest storms to its fast assembly. To date, the total output of the system has reached an estimated 600 MWp, primarily in the commercial segment, of course. And the trend is rising, because we are constantly developing the system further – recently with the new IBC AeroFix G3. (more…)

Blog Series: Our IBC AeroFix in a long-term test_part 2

Flat roofs are particularly well suited for the installation of PV systems. There is no question about that. Especially if a lot of PV power is required. But in times of recurring storms and hurricanes, these systems have to withstand a lot. In order to find out exactly how our proven and wind tunnel tested AeroFix system behaves in these extreme situations, we recently started video and sensor monitoring on a commercial roof in Hedemünden, southern Lower Saxony. In the first article we told you more about the background. Now we report in detail about the system and the test setup. (more…)

Flat roofs are particularly well suited for the installation of PV systems. There is no question about that. Especially if a lot of PV power is required. But in times of recurring storms and hurricanes, these systems have to withstand a lot. Our in-house and well known mounting system IBC AeroFix has already proven several times in the past that it can withstand the strongest storms. But how exactly does our AeroFix system perform in these extreme situations? We wanted to know more about this and therefore started a video and sensor monitoring for a period of 10 years. But before we go into detail, let’s take a look at some background information first. (more…)
