Avenston offers a full range of services for the design, construction and maintenance of solar power plants of all types. We work both “turnkey” and are ready to offer separate services at any stage of implementation of your solar project. Including: general contract (EPC), design of solar energy facilities, supply of equipment, construction and commissioning, maintenance and warranty service, consulting.
Currently, photovoltaic solar power plants (solar farms, solar PV plants) are the most popular worldwide. They consist of individual solar panels (photovoltaic solar modules) that are combined in series and parallel strings. Such solar power plants are widely used all over the world to supply energy to various objects (private houses, cottages, boarding houses, sanatoriums, industrial buildings, villages, cities, etc.) and differ in their power, installation, application and so on.
Thus, solar panels can be mounted on a variety of surfaces – from the roof or facade of a building to installation on the ground using special supporting metal structures (fixed or trackers). Accordingly, solar PV power plants can be ground, roof-top or facade type. The number and characteristics of solar modules determine installed capacity of solar farms. There are solar power plants of low, medium and high power. Installed capacities fluctuate in a wide range, from driving individual equipment to power supply to cities. Thus, solar power plants can be private, commercial or utility-scale.
Despite the large number of parameters of the classification, all the variety of solar power plants can be reduced to just a few of the most popular types. The most common ones are listed below.
One of key competencies of Avenston Engineering is the construction and maintenance of medium and high power solar power plants. Our group of companies carries out a range of works on the engineering, construction and maintenance of photovoltaic solar power plants of all types since 2010. It helped us to accumulate vast practical experience in the implementation of such projects.
Full professional support and expertise at all stages of implementation of solar power plants by Avenston Engineering. We design and build all types of modern solar PV power plants: utility-scale solar power plants, commercial solar power plants, solar power plants for business, home solar power plants, solar power plants for farmers, ground-mounted solar power plants, rooftop solar power plants, on-grid solar power plants, stand-alone solar power plants, solar canopies, solar power plants on crystalline solar modules, solar power plants on thin-film solar modules, and so on. We work with solar power plants of various capacities: 10 kW, 30 kW, 100 kW, 300 kW, 500 kW, 1 MW, 5 MW, 10 MW and more.
Avenston Engineering is a synthesis of a powerful engineering design cluster based on its many developments and know-how in its work, and an advanced production base that has vast experience in construction and installation work and exploitation. This allowed us to successfully implement a number of projects for the construction of industrial solar power stations, the total capacity of which exceeds one hundred megawatts. We are not only able to design and build solar power plants, we are able to organize the process in a complex way, from the choice of land and solutions to all issues related to starting the plant in operation, and before starting work at a green tariff.
We have accumulated experience in the construction of solar energy for the most different purposes:
– Powerful (10+ MW) industrial solar power plants.
– Ground solar power plants of medium (3-10 MW) power.
– Roof solar power plants, including the location of several buildings.
– Industrial standby solar power plants, etc.
In addition to commercial solar farms and systems, our specialists have extensive experience in the segment of home solar power plants. On-grid home solar power plants are the most popular type we built for private households. But we also built private solar power plants for self-consumption – backup power supply systems. Our home solutions include both rooftop solar power plants and systems placed on the ground, solar facades and canopies.
Technological processes in the manufacturing of components for solar energy are inexorably developing, increasing the efficiency of solar power plants year-to-year. Back in the early 2000s, solar energy conversion efficiency was about 10% for typical commercial solutions. But over the past two decades, this parameter has at least doubled, which, together with a significant reduction in production costs, provided a stable basis for the rapid development of the industry around the world.
Avenston Group is reasonably proud of its team, whose members actively took a part in relevant R&D and introduced advanced solar energy technologies into mass production. Many years have been devoted to the development of such complex and high-tech processes as acid and alkaline chemical etching of silicon wafers, high-temperature diffusion of phosphorus, plasma-chemical etching, application of ultra-thin anti-reflective coatings based on films of titanium dioxide and silicon nitride. These and many other processes were mastered and launched into serial production of silicon photovoltaic converters, and subsequently – solar modules.
A deep understanding of the physics of processes inside solar cells and solar modules, together with many years of expertise in the design, construction and operation of various photovoltaic systems, allows the Avenston team to most efficiently and rationally approach the choice of equipment for our solar power plants. Moving from the micro to the macro level with inverters, transformers and other power equipment, we continue, if necessary, to use approaches and methods of the science, microelectronics and nanotechnology, combining them with modern project management tools and our own quality management system.
