Solar park Lochem (NL)

In October 2019, we completed a solar park in the Dutch province of Gelderland. The sealing system of the former landfill in Lochem had to be protected from any damage, for which we found the ideal solution: A special flat foundation with an embedment depth of only 40 cm. Due to the ground level foundation plates, this construction is not sensitive to erosion.

The project was carried out with the extremely flexible mounting system GMS® max, both with two modules vertically and six modules horizontally. Thanks to the sophisticated assembly technology of the GMS® max system, the inclination could be individually adjusted during the construction phase, thus enabling slope parallel assembly. Even lateral inclinations of about 15° were not a problem.
