toughTrough GmbH developed a special penetration-free system with low-ballast for photovoltaic installations on flat roofs. Carefully performed analyses of conventional setup designs revealed great optimization potential for photovoltaic modules, especially regarding mounting systems. Additional wind tunnel tests simulating environmental conditions provided detailed data about the aerodynamic characteristics, such as the impact of wind loads on the modules.
toughTrough GmbH designed and installed a PV system for Brüggen GmbH, one of Europe's leading manufacturers of swap body systems for commercial vehicles. On both company locations – Herzlake and Lübtheen – the large production halls have been covered with photovoltaic power plants producing a total output of more than 2MW.
