SolutionsCOMPACTGROUND

Compact, tested base construction for single-sided elevated ground-mounted PV modules.

The ground-mounted, aerodynamic system for offers outstanding structural properties and requires significantly less ballast than other systems on the market. Thanks to the unique “spring effect” of the stand, the base structure adapts optimally to surface conditions. 

Installation requires no pile drivers or heavy machinery. CompactGROUND G uses ballast weights, but can also be installed using the optional ground screw.

All base constructions for the CompactGROUND family are saved in our 3D engineering software AEROTool. The AEROCOMPACT Customer Center can issue clear and competent project reports based on empirical data

COMPACTGROUND G

COMPACTGROUND G

COMPACTGROUND G is our new South aligned ground mounted system with a tilt between 15° and 20°. As the fastest ground-mounted system on the market, it can also be loaded into a truck up to 700 kWp. The system is installed with ground anchors or ballast stones.

Advantages at a glance

  • No ramming and no heavy machinery
  • Now with ground screw for fast installation and cost savings
