Tata Steel moves into ground mounting systems

Tata Steel has launched its solar ground mount system in the UK.

The system, in its current version, has already been successfully installed in Cumbria, Sussex and the Isle of Wight.

Tata Steel says the system, which is targeted at engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and utility companies as well as developers and planners, minimises the number of piles needed for installation, resulting in lower costs from the outset.

The company is also offering project specific training to installers helping them gain experience in a controlled environment.

Saurish Basu, business development manager at Tata Steel, said: “The development of a new tailored solar mount, which is durable, cost effective and reduces the  risk of installation, is a natural extension of Tata Steel’s comprehensive and established energy offering.

“Fundamentally, customers can also be assured of full traceability of supply, which leads to greater flexibility in terms of delivery timescale. Tata Steel is committed to working in partnership with industry and government to work towards meeting renewable energy targets.”
