This is a world premiere for the innovative solution with fully grid-connected and off-grid functionalities. The project is designed to maximize the use of renewable energy and ensure uninterrupted power supply to keep the lights on and the factories running during any planned or unplanned power outages on the main grid supply.

“The clamps ensure the roof sheeting warranties are honoured while the rail system elevates the panels to a good height for ventilation purposes. The ease of use of the system allowed a fast installation time, it took approximately two weeks to install all the mounting kit”, said Frans-Willem Vermaak, Business Development Manager of Lumax Energy.

Renusol supplied the mounting system for the large-scale project. The German specialist in PV mounting systems entered the South African solar market recently. “The conclusion of this project is a great reference. Additional projects with Lumax are already in the pipeline,” reports Sven Künzel, Renusol’s Managing Director.
