Working on a 11.9MW in Cyprus, Grunkraft is using concrete pilling as the foundation method. Our optimisation is focused on achieving the absolute 0 (zero) degrees East-West. A mission considered impossible taking into consideration the terrain contours.   However proper utilisation of the groundworks along with continuous improvements during pilling with the use of Leica Total Station and Laser distance meters and a series of calculations per PV array is leading to the absolute zero slope.

Case was studied extensively on paper prior to installation with the use of Solar shading Analysis and modelling on Surpac (the groundworks) and Ecotect the animation of solar shading. Works in the field followed the studies and optimised per array prior to any concrete pilling.
