MarcS: Shaping the future of solar energy
GOLDBECK SOLAR launches the solar arc that will change the photovoltaic industry | Winner of the Intersolar Award 2021
Enormous added value for agriculture
The inspiration for this design not only comes from 20 years of experience in building solar systems, but it also feeds from the wishes and ideas of the farmers who have shaped the product development process with us. MarcS represents a way for farmers to generate more income from their crops by using their land twice. "MarcS is a real innovation that takes into account the challenges in agriculture and offers suitable solutions for them," explains Joachim Goldbeck, Managing Director of GOLDBECK SOLAR.
The shape of the arch is statically very solid and widely used in architecture, as well as commonly found in majestic formations of nature. The arches can slide on the side rails. Their position is flexibly adjustable. Land areas in this way can be released or protected from the sun's rays at will. This feature is particularly interesting for alternative use of land areas. And there are even more advantages for farmers. For one thing, the modules protect animals and plants from extreme weather conditions such as hail, drought, or excessive sunlight. For another, temperature, humidity, and light can be better controlled, optimizing the quality of breeding and harvesting.
In addition, very interesting extensions are planned for the use of the space under the modules. For example, vertical farming with additional light is just as conceivable as closing off the side areas for additional storage space. All this and much more is currently being developed based on a robotic farming concept.
The new product includes an automatic or semi-automatic installation concept, as desired, which brings speed and accuracy. "We are entering a new generation of solar power plant installation. MarcS construction is much easier and faster," says Joachim Goldbeck, managing director of GOLDBECK SOLAR.
Available in the Netherlands and later in other countries
MarcS will first be offered in the Dutch market. There, MarcS will soon be used for the first time in the realization of a solar plant of one of our regular customers. An installed capacity of 45 MWp is the target of this plant. After that, other markets will follow.
