Rehabilitation of a PV plant near Plymouth (UK)
After asserting ourselves as a specialist in this field against numerous competitors in an intensive international tendering and bidding phase, the first step was the in-depth detailed planning, which took place in our company headquarters in Leun (Hesse). We were required to stabilize and rehabilitate an already-built PV plant, as it became necessary due to the difficult weather and environmental conditions surrounding the plant.
We decided with our customers to implement a solution which included anchoring new posts into the ground and connecting them to the existing posts of the plant by mounting struts and frames which were specially designed for this particular project. We also reinforced the system further by applying rope bracing to the tables and shotcrete to the posts where it was deemed necessary.
After repeated and extensive statistical calculations and experimenting, we started to carry out the works in October 2017, which posed quite a challenge considering the weather conditions, but it turned out to be a chance for us to deal with such measures when the timing is crucial. “The upper layers of the ground are extremely soft, the weather is very wet and stormy and we are experiencing some difficulties in the windier part of the plant, but everything is going according to plan and we are good on time,” said Ernst-Günter Ache (CEO). “Nevertheless, we were able to deliver on our promises and complete the works to the full satisfaction of our clients regardless of any hardships, which in turn motivated our clients to commission us for more projects to come” he added.
It is with great pride to say that our remarkable construction management and on site home cooked meals encountered extremely positive feedback; our construction site kitchen was often appraised for its special care, and the debriefings with our client and contractor about the completed works proved to be exceptionally good.
We are always more than pleased to know that our performances surpass our customer’s wishes and we are already looking forward for a future cooperation.
