Krannich Solar and Renusol America have extended their relationship in the U.S. solar market with the introduction of the Renusol VS Line and the Renusol CS60 mounting solutions into the Krannich Solar line of solar products and components carried in the United States. The companies share a heritage of excellence in German engineering and a history of collaboration on solar projects across Europe through their German-based parent companies.
The Renusol VS is a flexible and light on-roof system for easy installation of photovoltaic systems for pitched roofs. Pre-assembled clamps, fastener-free splice connectors, and slide-free L-feet minimize installation time. Stainless steel hardware and aluminum rails provide strength and long life along with high strength-to-weight ratio rail design that keeps cost low, while allowing longer spans. This system offers a “one-size-fits-all” mounting solution, easy inventory maintenance and simple installation.
The popular, American-made Renusol CS60 is a ballasted mounting system for flat roof applications available in 10° and 15° tilts. Made of durable high molecular weight polyethylene (HMWPE), this compact system transports easily, sets up quickly, and requires no roof penetration with the addition of ballast. Specifically enhanced and wind tunnel tested for the U.S. market, the Renusol CS60 more evenly spreads point load weight across the roof surface. With only one Renusol CS60 needed for every PV module, roof design layouts and job inventory can now be ‘sized per panel’, simplifying the project engineering and reducing installation costs. The system design is based on Renusol’s highly successful European console design that has several hundred MW installed.
“Everything about the Renusol mounting system solutions—from design to installation—was developed with the installer in mind,” says Juan Romera-Wade, CEO of the United States branch of Krannich Solar’s. “They are easy to put together, saving the installer time, and Renusol is well-known in the industry for the full package of expertise in system planning and for the support service they provide.”
“Renusol mounting solutions are now in place in solar projects in 28 states across the U.S.,” states Renusol CEO and President, Bart Leusink. “Becoming a Krannich Solar manufacturer partner means that even more installers can take advantage of simpler, more cost-effective mounting solutions for their solar projects.”
