Innovative Agri PV system
The GMS® DOUBLE mounting system redefines the concept of space utilisation.
Due to its raised design without row spacing, it uses 100% of the ground and thus provides plant operators with highest area yields. Furthermore, the raised construction allows additional (e.g. agricultural) use of the ground beneath the modules. This makes GMS® DOUBLE an interesting Agri-PV solution.
For the use of the ground area, there is a great variety of approaches: Plantations of berries and fruit trees, animal farming, storage areas, car parks, built-over floodplains, etc. GMS® DOUBLE adapts to the desired use with customised post spacing and heights, with the desired amount of light transmission and individual module inclination. MKG GÖBEL will design the system to meet your project-specific requirements.
The benefits at a glance
Maximum electricity yields
GMS® DOUBLE doesn’t need any spaces between rows or maintenance walkways. Instead, the entire surface area can be used. This makes it possible to achieve over 650 kWp/acre / 1.6 MW per hectare.
Profitable electricity yield curve
When aligned east-west, GMS® DOUBLE allows longer electricity production on summer days than south-facing systems. The daily yield curve is wider and flatter, the midday peak less pronounced.
Double use of the ground
Distances between poles of 3 to 5 metres (depending on the modules), 2 to 4 metres of clear headroom: There is a lot of space under the GMS® DOUBLE system, which can be used in many different ways.
Structural crop protection
For agricultural use (Agri-PV), the roof protects against weather extremes (heavy rain, hail, excessive sunlight). GMS® DOUBLE can thus replace foil tunnels or greenhouses. Even watertight roofing is possible.
Control of the light conditions
With an east-west orientation, the light moves across the ground during the course of the day. The quantity of transmitted sunlight can be regulated by module row spacing, and can be further increased with semi-transparent modules.
Particularly where land prices are high, GMS® DOUBLE can deliver tangible benefits. By producing more electricity than other systems. And by providing space where needed below the PV modules.
