Satteins, Austria, April 14, 2021 — (Solar Business Hub) Austrian manufacturer of PV mounting systems AEROCOMPACT announces the launch of the COMPACTGround RAM-X product range for solar parks with more than 500 kWp output, which will be available worldwide from April.
In addition to the high energy density, the company has paid particular attention to quick assembly and maximum use of space in the RAM-X product range series. Its modular structure with just three main components enables the system to be assembled in a very short time and its well-thought-out installation options make it very adaptable to different landscapes, as confirmed in initial installation projects.
The RAM-X2.1 two-leg system for south and east/west systems is available in three standard configurations for 6×4, 5×4 or 4×4 modules with inclines between 10 and 25°.
The RAM-X 1.1 single-leg system and the RAM-X 2.2 two-leg system, on the other hand, are suitable for lengths of up to 30 meters and module inclines between 0 and 30°. In addition, the modules of the RAM-X1.1 can be easily arranged either in portrait or landscape format. This increases the possible applications and lowers system costs.
The perfect addition
With the COMPACTGround RAM-X product range, AEROCOMPACT is expanding its COMPACTGround G15/20 series successfully launched in 2017, which previously consisted of aluminium substructures screwed into the ground or ballasted. For the first time, AEROCOMPACT uses steel profiles coated with zinc-magnesium for the RAM-X series, which will be rammed into the ground and also go higher, which means that more energy can now be generated in the same area.
The large-area structure also minimizes shading, increases energy density, and makes maintenance easier. In addition, sheep can now graze under the modules.
CEO Matthias Muther explained:
“We grew up with mounting systems for all roof types. Our new piling systems complement our portfolio perfectly. With the zinc-magnesium coating, we have increased the corrosion resistance.”
Short delivery times
In addition to design, planning, project development, and assembly, AEROCOMPACT can also prepare soil reports including chemical analyses upon request. The concept is based on a short cycle and fast delivery. AEROCOMPACT delivered its first RAM-X test system including a soil report in just a few weeks.
Markus Egger, Head of Technical Inside Sales, reported:
“The initial feedback has been very positive. The installers are enthusiastic about the system. The new product range makes us a 360° racking company.”
Like all systems from the Austrian manufacturer, the new product range is optimally protected against high snow and wind loads and meets the EN 1991-1-3 and EN1991-1-4 standards. AEROCOMPACT also offers a ten-year guarantee on its product.
AEROCOMPACT was founded in Austria in 2014. The company produces and sells PV mounting solutions for flat roofs, pitched roofs and metal roofs, as well as for outdoor systems. One focus is on PV substructures without direct connection to flat roofs. The company has locations in Austria, the USA and India and an additional 14 sales offices around the world. A total of over 80 people work for the company worldwide.
