Outdoor system for the optimized bifacial Use

Sigma II PV Mounting System

Outdoor system for the optimized bifacial Use

Monofacial photovoltaic modules, which receive solar radiation only from the front of the module, have long been the prevailing industry standard. In recent years, however, the focus has increasingly been on bifacial PV modules, which offer many new possibilities and advantages to their installers. The biggest difference between mono-facial and bifacial modules in practice is that bifacial modules are able to collect reflected and diffuse solar radiation from the back of the module as well.

Depending on many factors, such as installation height, the reflectivity (albedo) of the subsurface, shading of adjacent rows, and the amount of diffuse radiation, the additional bifacial yield can be as high as 30%. Since 2014, bifacial installations have increased rapidly, and there appears to be no end in sight. Some estimates suggest an increase of up to 60% in the near future, which means that bifacial solar systems could become the new industry standard.

Sigma II for bifacial use

The Sigma II system from Mounting Systems

At Mounting Systems, we have optimized our substructures accordingly to respond to the growing demand for bifacial systems. Our excellent bipartite Sigma II Ground-mounted system is specially designed to avoid shading on the back of the modules. The fixed mounting system is highly adaptable, allowing for a fully customized design. The ease of installation together with the corrosion resistance make the system a wise investment and guarantees a long life.

In addition, the system enables multiple module configurations. Depending on the specific requirements of a project, different foundations such as driven piles, ground screws or base plates can be used. Like all our other mounting systems, the Sigma II is developed and produced under certified sustainability standards and the components are easy to dismantle and recycle.

Mounting Systems - More than a system. It's a brand.

There is no question about it: the recent developments of the global COVID 19 outbreak have shaped our world and society in a way we have not seen in a long time. In some areas of the business world, the consequences have been more severe, while in others, the impact has been minimal. Either way, one thing is certain: businesses are being forced to adapt to the new and rapidly changing situation - a risk or an opportunity?

In response to canceled and postponed trade shows have Joint Forces for Solar (JF4S) and the International Battery & Energy Storage Alliance (IBESA) used the difficult situation to their advantage and are about to launch the world's first e-marketplace "Solar & Storage DigiCon" on July 15, 2020.

Unique virtual marketplace

The Solar & Storage DigiCon is the world's first e-marketplace that takes place in a virtual environment. The platform brings companies and their stakeholders together: around the globe, over several months and around the clock. On the virtual platform, where many opportunities are offered as on regular congresses, companies can present their products, services and latest technologies as well as get in touch with their customers in personal chats or video calls. Some of the participating target groups of the virtual event are installers, developers, EPC companies, investors and policy makers.

To make the e-marketplace more attractive and interesting, Live Days will be held focusing on key regions. The first focus region will be Europe. The first Live Days "The Renaissance of Europe" will take place on July 28 from 09:00 to 16:00 (CET) (part 1) and on another date (part 2) in September. The exact date for the second part will be communicated shortly. Some of the topics to be discussed are for example innovative technologies, digitalization and financing mechanisms of the solar industry.

Virtual exhibition environment

The virtual exhibition takes place in an exciting virtual environment, and the principle is similar to regular trade shows. After logging in, visitors are directed to the entrance area, where they can start their journey and navigate between different exhibition halls, virtual auditoriums, webinars, exhibition booths and networking areas. At the virtual booth, visitors can get to know the companies and interact with their employees through written chats and video calls, as well as access brochures, datasheets and other interesting marketing materials.

Launch and Live Days with regional focus

The electronic marketplace will be launched on July 15. After that, visitors can register to visit the platform free of charge. Access is possible around the clock from anywhere in the world. The first Live Days focusing on Europe will take place on July 28 and on a second day in September, and during this time you will be able to meet our staff in person at the virtual booth between 09:00 and 16:00 (CET) and talk to them about our products and our company. The Live Days event series will continue, focusing on North America in September, Latin America in October, the Middle East in November and Asia Pacific in December. The exact dates for the remaining Live Days will be published as the event progresses.

Mounting Systems is participating in this exciting and new concept of a virtual exhibition as a "Gigawatt Partner". It is a great opportunity to interact with industry stakeholders, even in these difficult times.

Visit us at our digital booth! We look forward to seeing you there!
