INSTALL THE SOLAR CELL PARK WITH GROUND SCREW
In recent years, interest in solar cells and building solar parks has increased significantly in Sweden, which is not so strange given that technology has developed, prices have fallen and awareness has increased. With that said, solar energy still accounts for only a vanishingly small portion of our energy supply. In other words; there is room for more solar parks and this is where we come into the picture. We make sure to get your facility in place in no time.
GROUND SCREW – FLEXIBLE, EFFICIENT AND EASY ON THE GROUND AND ENVIRONMENT
Taking advantage of the sun’s energy is wise. Mounting the solar park with a ground screw is even wiser. In a solar park, the solar panels are always mounted on scaffolding – so-called racks. Traditionally, these have been anchored with either concrete or piling. However, we ourselves think that ground screws are smarter. Why? Because it is flexible, efficient and leads to less intervention in the soil than conventional methods. Or as we say; why dig if you do not have to?
Ground screws also makes it easier to adapt the solar park to our customers’ wishes and nature’s conditions. And should you need to decommission or move your solar park, it is easy to dismantle the system and reuse the screw.

READY TO START?
Before we can begin work on your solar park, we need to find out a few things. First and foremost, of course, we need to know how many solar panels or kW the project covers, how large the panels are and whether they deviate in any way from standard measurements. In addition, we want to know how you want the panels placed in your solar park. You can see a standard set in the picture below, but we will of course adapt to the project’s specific conditions. In addition to this, we need to know where in the country your photovoltaic park should be located, as the geographical location affects which snow and wind load we are to calculate with and which ground screw we are to use. Last but not least, we need to know what angle of inclination you have in mind. Our scaffolding can be installed with a slope of between 20 and 35 degrees, but we can also go down to a slope of 10 degrees if needed.
WE DELIVER THE FOUNDATION
LET A PROFESSIONAL ASSEMBLE YOUR SOLAR CELL PARK
When all preparations are complete, it is time for our authorized fitters to start working. We can do this long before the solar panels arrive. We deliver a foundation with ground screw and racks to the current location. The racks we provide come from Van der Valk Solar Systems, which is one of the fastest growing companies in the industry. Van der Valk Solar Systems offers different types of ground systems, such as Valkfield Single Row – perfect for small areas or where there are height restrictions, and ValkField Double Row which offers space for two rows of panels on top of each other and which is suitable for medium to large projects.
Both ValkField Single Row and ValkField Double Row are suitable for all types of surfaces and have undergone extensive tests for their corrosion resistance, which shows that the plant is stool even if it is exposed to harsh weather conditions.
Do you have another rack system? No worries, we can mount the ground screw in any case.
Of course, it would be easier if all solar parks were on smooth and stone-free ground, but that is not the reality. However, it does not matter, our ground screw can handle both weather, wind, rocky ground and hard-to-reach surfaces that can be difficult to use in other cases and which can therefore be used to create wonderful renewable energy. It can also be nice to know that we always do tensile tests before we decide which of our screws we should use for your project.

HOW MUCH DOES A FOUNDATION COST USING GROUND SCREWS?
There are several factors that determine how many and what type of ground screws you will need. Contact us to get an estimate of what installed ground screws will cost for your special project. We’ll help you work it all out.
