RBI Solar’s ballasted fixed-tilt systems are perfect for municipal solid waste landfills, brownfields and other sites where non-penetrable solar racking solutions are required. Our engineers and designers consider important parameters such as dynamic settlements, landfill cap characteristics, slope and stability before designing a reliable and cost-effective ballasted mounting solution to suit the needs each specific site. Both Precast and Cast-in-Place options can be utilized to meet the logistical and economic requirements for any project.
Precast ballast are designed and engineered per project specifications. The racking system is mechanically attached to the precast concrete foundation to allow for easy disassembly for future maintenance on landfill caps. Option for pre-assembled post foundations at the precasters facility will reduce the amount of on-site field connections reducing installation labor time and costs.
Forms are customized and supplied by RBI Solar per project as specified by the engineered project specifications. Once concrete mix has cured, the racking system is mechanically attached to the concrete ballast block foundations to allow for easy disassembly for future maintenance on landfill caps.
