Osprey PowerPlatform

Each Osprey PowerPlatform can be installed in about an hour using a four-person crew. Installation is blazing fast with six main steel components that can be assembled using standard power hand tools. Eliminate the high cost of skilled labor and on site heavy machinery. Forget about pile-driven foundation or concrete, cement, cutting, welding or drilling. A geotechnical report or 3rd party special inspection is typically not required.

Installed in About An Hour

 

OSPREY POWERPLATFORM

Nuance Energy’s Osprey PowerPlatform is a proprietary ground-mounted racking system that has revolutionized the solar industry – both in terms of cost and time.

Unlike with standard ground-mounted solar solutions, Osprey’s modular design eliminates:

1. Costly Excavations

The racking system’s earth anchor application allows for easy installation on any terrain – without pile-driven foundations, or concrete pads.

2. Expensive Machinery

You can easily assemble the Osprey PowerPlatform’s prefabricated steel components using simple handheld power tools. No heavy machinery is needed on-site, and no cutting, welding, or drilling is required.

3. Skilled Labor

The Osprey PowerPlatform eliminates the need for skilled, high-wage workers. With a 4-person crew, you can assemble a 5kW installation in about an hour, allowing you to build up to a 40kW system in a single 8-hour shift.

4. Geotechnical Reports

Real-time soil condition load testing eliminates the need for geotechnical reporting or third-party inspections.

In field labor costs alone, the Osprey PowerPlatform can shave $130,000 off a standard 2MW solar installation.

These savings aren’t the only benefit of the Osprey’s nimble design. Whether as a contractor, developer, or EPC, this robust solar racking solution can help you bring projects online in a fraction of the time.

Whereas a 2MW installation would normally take months to become fully operational, the Osprey PowerPlatform allows you to have the foundations, racking and modules installed in 16 days.

Earth Anchors & Structural Engineering

Real-time soil verification and load (pull) test is achieved through proprietary use of earth anchors that act like underground toggle bolts to secure the Osprey PowerPlatform to the ground.

A site specific Structural Calculation and Engineering Report complete with vertical and lateral analysis (dead load, live load, wind load and seismic load, etc.) is provided.

Our structural engineers are available to speak with your local inspectors.
