This screw can adapt to all types of terrain and structures for fixed PV installations, without the need for concrete. It is also compatible with all types of fixed structures for PV installations on the market, which makes it an universal screw since the screw head can be customized for different structures.

The screw is made of hot galvanized steel in accordance with ISO 1461, which provides maximum durability. Without the necessity for concrete, the assembly time is shortened and preparation of the plot is easier.

As the company states, next to zero preparation is needed. The estimates made by the company indicate that the installation time, depending on the fixed structure and the land, is around three to four megawatts in a week using a single machine.

Extraction is also apparently easy reducing the environmental impact and reducing the costs of removal. The galvanized steel is also recyclable.
