07-Mar-2013 The new solar park near Vagia Viotias was constructed without any concrete foundations. In the words of Ioannis Pistiolis, CEO of the installation company GreenTop: "We are exceptionally happy that we decided to use the steel roots from DEGER to anchor the system. We had a lot of rain during the construction work, and the soil was very damp. In this case we would have had serious problems with concrete foundations. Instead the entire construction process went perfectly."
Steel roots allow to build up DEGER's tracking systems easily and quickly and fix them very sturdy. Each of the 48 DEGERtracker units is equipped with 42 solar modules and rated for just more than 10 kilowatts. Thus the total output installed in Vagia Viotias amounts to approximately 500 kilowatts altogether. By using the steel roots GreenTop S.A. was able to complete the entire installation in the record time of just one month. The client and operator is the Greek company Kalyviotis Bros SA.
GreenTop CEO Ioannis Pistiolis comments: "In Greece we already installed solar parks with a total output of approximately 20 megawatts, but Vagia Viotias is our first project with DEGER systems. We followed the recommendation of one of our partners who already used DEGERtrackers to realize several projects in recent years, and who is very satisfied with the robustness and yields offered by this technology."
In the near future GreenTop plans to build other parks in Greece with an output of approximately 30 megawatts altogether. "DEGER systems make a very good impression, and they can be constructed quickly and easily. If we get the same good yields as our partner, then I can imagine cooperating with DEGER in the future as well."
