Investors’ attention is currently focused on the costs of installing photovoltaic panels, but in the future a significant challenge will be given by technical and commercial exploitation. The use of the tracking system for the installation of photovoltaic panels leads to a 16% increase in energy production and contributes to a 5% decrease in the cost per kWh, said Marius Bolba, Sales Manager at Geminox.
“If we talk about sustainable communities, at the same time we must also talk about the local production of renewable energy. Photovoltaic energy is within reach of the end user, the household customer and businesses. We are talking a lot about the installation of photovoltaic panels on the ground for next year, but it will be a challenge to operate it technically and efficiently from a commercial point of view, just as it will be a challenge to commercialize the photovoltaic energy”, said Bolba, during the “Sustainable Communities – Timișoara” conference, organized by Energynomics and SmartiCity.
The Geminox company is the official representative for Clenergy photovoltaic panel mounting systems for the countries Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Greece and uses a special alloy, called MAC Steel, which generates a 30% reduction in the amount of steel required for the installation of solar panels.
“This technical solution improves the energy generation curve and contributes to a faster recovery of the investment. We primarily address companies that install photovoltaic panels on the roof, we work directly with these companies and distributors, and not with the end customer. We always have a stock of 50 MW, and for the year 2023 we are preparing to act strongly in the market of mounting solar panels on the ground with tracking systems”, Bolba added.
Geminox has a global portfolio of 12GW installed in solar panels in countries such as China, Vietnam, Myanmar or Cambodia.
The conference was organized by Energynomics and SmartiCity with the support of partners ABB, Bosch, EximBank, Geminox, Kawasaki Gas Turbine Europe, LAPP Romania, Novotrol, Phoenix Contact, REI Group, UP Romania, Wiren.
Throughout the event, Novotrol representatives answered participants’ questions. Novotrol is Baker Hughes Group’s channel partner for the Turbomachinery and Process Solutions (T.P.S.) and Flow & Process Technologies (F.&P.T.) divisions for Romania. “Our story started in 1996 with F.&P.T. Masoneilan Control Valves and Consolidated Safety Valves division. 27 years later we are still with F&P.T. but also with the Nuovo Pignone division from T.P.S. and with Thermodyn, thus offering more complete and complex solutions such as gas turbines and compressors”, told us Andrei Paraschiv, Sale Engineer Novotrol.
