SOLAR MOUNTING SYSTEMS
Supporting the Solar Industry
A number of years ago back in 2012, a large EPC contractor approached the company that Harvey was working for at the time, asking for a heavy channel for pile mounting tracking systems on. This spurred Harvey to do more research in the solar industry to seek to find out if there was a way that he could develop a more cost effective product that was actually manufactured in Australia. Using his experience of the properties of steel sections, and in-depth knowledge of coating properties, Harvey has and continues to come up with a number of cost effective designs that are easy and quick to install and provide the EPC contractor with more local content.
What Harvey soon realised when he started to study the market more seriously in 2017 with the valued assistance of Anthony Anderson was that most systems have too much adjustment in them, numerous different sections and fasteners which add together to waste time on site due to the time it takes to find each item and then get them together and panels aligned and straight. Harvey then came up with a simple Patented design that has a total of 8 parts, and 2 sizes of bolts to construct the entire solar farm saving time and allowing unskilled labour to be used to assemble the farm.
Due to market segmentation, Solar Mounting Systems specialises in ground mount systems for utility scale projects of anything larger than 200 KW.
With a passion about renewable energy dating back to an young age, and 16 years of experience in the construction and building industry, including 9 years of specialised experience in cold formed metal products, Harvey comes to the solar industry with a wealth of knowledge that is of benefit to the customer.
