Platipus® Solar Panels
Platipus Anchors are perfectly suited for most off-grid and standalone systems.
These anchors can be easily installed by hand with simple tools and unskilled labour, removing the need for specialised equipment. The anchors are available in a range of system configurations to suit all design life requirements:Galvanised steel for temporary applications Stainless steel for permanent applicationsAs the anchor system and installation equipment are lightweight and compact, transportation costs are also greatly reduced.
In situations where traditional foundation solutions have failed or are failing, due to incorrect installation or unsuitable ground conditions, a selection of bespoke wire stay solutions are available to help stabilize the array and provide additional support to uplift. These standard retro-fit systems can quickly connect the array to a Platipus Anchor. This typically consists of a stainless steel wire tendon and a simple tensioner which can be tailored to suit most frames, soil conditions and design life.
