MVS System

Photovoltaic support for PV farms

The MVS system is a mono axe solar follower completely developed by MECOSUN to answer three major objectives:

- Increase the return on the power plant for a capital cost similar to a fixed structure,
- Simplify the installation of the structure and the modules,
- Limit the maintenance costs.

MVS

Adaptability & flexibility

  • All types of framed modules
  • Custom dimensions to optimise land use
  • Developed for a range of different ground and all foundation types

Reliability & long life

  • Control of expansion stresses between the structure and photovoltaic modules
  • Materials used are recyclable and selected for long term weather resistance

Optimisation & profitability

  • Up to 32 modules per structure
  • Just 4 bases for optimum distribution of loads from the structure
  • Custom inclination angles according to the geographical location of your project, optimising the output of your power plant
  • Inclination angle can easily be changed without the need for special training (for example, the site supervisor can do it)
  • Increased electricity generation to speed up your return on investment (up to 4.5%)

Easy to install

  • Installation method validated with qualified professional installers
  • Easy installation due to a small number of parts, all weighing less than 25 kg
  • Modules are fixed using clips specially designed for quick and intuitive use

Maintenance

  • Manual rotation system with no additional maintenance costs
  • A steeper angle in winter and smaller system dimensions prevent snow build-up and aid natural cleaning by the rain
  • The structure is recyclable and more than 95% recoverable

Training

MECOSUN is an accredited training body, and offers training on how to install our systems. The day-long course provides you with the best possible advice for your first installation and also provides access to our "materials" warranty.

  • The MVS solar support is a solar tracker developed entirely by MECOSUN.
  • The system allows you to increase the output of your solar power plant, using a single-axis rotation system.
  • The number of settings and the inclination angles are custom designed according to your geographical location and site restrictions.
  • The system also reduces the time and cost of installation.
