ETN certification from Mounting Systems sets new standards

Interview: ETN certification sets new standards


ETN certificate for the French market

We recently received the ETN certificate for the French market, a milestone in bringing our products to the French market. In this interview, we will go into more detail about what this certification means for the company, what impact it will have on the solar market in France and what future developments we can expect.

We are delighted to present an exclusive interview with Sonia Pavloff (Head of Sales Europe) to present:

Can you briefly introduce yourself?

Sonia: I'm Sonia and I've been working for MSY as International Sales Manager since 2021, developing the brand in international markets, especially in France.

Could you briefly explain to us what exactly this certificate means and what significance it has for your company?

Sonia: The ETN (New Technical Study) is a technical study on the compatibility between certain solar modules and mounting systems. The technical assessment is carried out by inspection offices and the Scientific and Technical Center for Construction, which checks critical points such as watertightness, mechanical resistance, fire risk, etc.. This is usually required by insurance companies before the completion of a photovoltaic roof project in France. If you want to be present in France, you must have it.

What specific requirements and standards did Mounting Systems have to meet in order to obtain the ETN certificate? Were there any challenges during the certification process?

Sonia: We had to comply with a very detailed list of standards, edit a report, carry out internal tests, but also external tests in a special laboratory. It was hard work involving various departments and colleagues.

How will the ETN certificate affect market access and your business opportunities in France? Are there any specific expectations or goals that Mounting Systems would like to achieve with this certificate?

Sonia: It is important to obtain the ETN if you want to sell your product in France. So if we get all our systems certified, we can become a major player in the solar sector in France. French legislation is very strict and new laws have been passed, for example for carports, which will give us a good opportunity to sell our industrial carports for large parking lots.

What advantages does Mounting Systems offer compared to other providers on the market?

Sonia: We offer a complete Product portfolio for on-roof, in-roof, various types of flat roofs and also ground mounting and carports. Our customers have access to a very complete range of products and can work in both the private and commercial sectors.

Can you tell us something about your experience with the French solar market? How do you assess the potential and development opportunities for renewable energies in France?

Sonia: We are ready to sell on the French market, which is a huge market with great potential in the residential and commercial/project sectors. The use of solar energy, e.g. for carports, is encouraged by French legislation.

To what extent does Mounting Systems support the energy transition and the expansion of renewable energies in France and worldwide? What role do our products play in this?

Sonia: In our markets, we have the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the energy transition, including renewable energies and a green future. For us, sustainability not only means durable and long-lasting products, but also environmental awareness and responsibility for the future.

What further steps or plans does Mounting Systems have for the future to strengthen its presence on the French market and further expand its range of solar substructures?

Sonia: We need to set up a technical and sales team for France in order to offer a comprehensive service in French and to adapt our products and services to the market.

Finally, is there anything else you would like to tell our readers, particularly with regard to the importance of certifications and quality standards in the renewable energy sector?


Sonia: Mounting Systems' philosophy is that we are more than just a brand. We offer not only products, but also services such as technical support, sales service and marketing. Compliance with all types of certifications is very important to us and therefore we are committed to complying with the standards of the renewable energy sector.

Thank you very much for the interview.


Sonia: It was a pleasure.

30 years anniversary

Jubilee 2023

Three successful decades of trend-setting innovation and development - a constant in the solar industry

This year we celebrate our 30th anniversary and would like to thank our customers and business partners for their many years of loyalty. Mounting Systems is a company that specializes in the development of durable and innovative solar mounting systems and thus not only makes a decisive contribution to a clean environment, but also ensures a good working and customer climate.

Summer party

Summer Sun Mounting Systems

On Friday, 23.06.2023, the time had finally come: Our 3-in-1 party could begin. With over 300 guests we celebrated our summer party, the 30th anniversary and the opening of the new factory. The motto was "Summer-Sun-Mounting Systems". But the weather in Rangsdorf did not want to stick to it and gave us a present in the form of heavy rain showers and a cool breeze. Thanks to the good preparation and the new premises at Maulbeerstraße 13, all colleagues, families and guests stayed dry, as the celebration was simply moved indoors. Our new facility was thus duly inaugurated. Who needs warm temperatures and sunshine?

more than a party.
it's a jubilee.

Everyone was surprised with a large selection of food trucks, a huge show truck that prepared delicious cocktails and much more, and a photo box where you could capture the beautiful moments. On the stage many exciting program points took place. Various dance groups from Dabendorf and Rangsdorf showed their skills. Live singing and a DJ provided the musical entertainment and encouraged dancing. Also for our small guests was provided. Two large bouncy castles were set up for them to play and romp around. There was a table with face painting and glitter tattoos. There they could have different motifs painted on their faces. Many parents took home little cats, lions or flower fairies. The balloon artist conjured up pirate swords and various animals for the children. All in all, our 30th anniversary was a great success and we would like to thank all our colleagues and service providers for their great efforts. A special thank you goes to everyone who joined in the celebration and made sure that this day will be remembered for a long time to come.


Summer party at the new location

The special highlight of the summer festival was the location.

We are looking forward to generating more jobs through the expansion of our existing location in Rangsdorf and to soon be able to deliver more goods to our customers and partners in a shorter time.

Mounting systems for the largest solar carport in the world


Mounting Systems has developed its Sigma Carport solution for the world's first 35 MWp solar carport park supplied by Solarfields and Lowlandsin Biddinghuizen, the Netherlands. The solar park is being built on the Lowlands parking lots next to the MOJO open-air festival site and covers an area of 35 hectares. A total of 90,000 bifacial solar modules will generate 35 MWp of energy, equivalent to the electricity consumption of 10,000 households per year or 100 festival weekends. Currently, the parking lot is used by at least four major festivals from May through October. The annual carbon emissions avoided are 18,410,000 kg.

Steel structures on a sturdy foundation

After a thorough assessment of the ground conditions, 2,770 special concrete foundation piles, each five meters long and weighing three tons, were driven into the ground. Once a stable foundation had been created, the steel systems were installed. Depending on the application, three different types of steel structures were assembled from standardized components - two structures for one car with three PV modules vertically and one structure for two cars (facing each other) with five PV modules vertically. The hot-dip galvanized structures in combination with the robust concrete foundations guarantee a solid and reliable carport system for more than 25 years.

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

Planned expected settlement phenomena in the structure and required low embedment depths were the outstanding features of this project in Malaysia. On behalf of BayWa r.e., we supplied this landfill project with Sigma II frames. For this purpose, the frames were equipped with a flexible adjustment to compensate for medium-term subsidence phenomena.
