The GMS® DOUBLE mounting system redefines the concept of space utilisation: GMS® DOUBLE uses the available surface area almost completely and therefore provides plant operators with highest area yields. Furthermore, the raised construction allows additional use of the ground beneath the modules.
The benefits at a glance
Maximum electricity yields
GMS® DOUBLE does not 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
GMS® DOUBLE is usually positioned in east-west orientation and therefore produces electricity for longer on summer days than systems constructed to face south. The daily yield curve is wider and flatter, and the mid-day peak is less pronounced.
Double use of the ground
Distances between poles of 3 to 5 metres (depending on the modules), 2 to metres of clear headroom: There is a lot of space under the GMS® DOUBLE system, which can be used e.g. for animals or plants, as a storage area or as a parking lot. The east-west orientation and the ridge spacing ensure that the sunlight hits the ground throughout the day.
In particular 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.
