GreenGo Energy is a company that develops, constructs and operates large-scale solar projects on behalf of clients. The projects have been placed around Europe, and this project in collaboration with Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson is set to be in the U.S. Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson teamed up with GreenGo Energy, to develop and optimize construction of solar panels. The main task in the project, was to minimize cost of the solar panels’ constructions. This would be done, by minimizing the tonnage of steel in the construction. This, while still constructing it to last as a permanent construction, and to endure various conditional loads that could occur.
GreenGo is the company behind the project. Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson are engineering consultants on the steel design and optimization.
The design of the supporting steel structure had to minimize cost and construction time. Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson worked in collaboration with GreenGo on optimizing the design of supporting structure for various arrangements of panels, cross section type sand wall thicknesses. The intention was to achieve the lowest possible tonnage of the supporting structure and deliver typical steel structure for predefined site categories.
