Our new proprietary patented AccuSolar product line is based on floating docks embedded with solar panels. These are comprised of individual floating dock sections, each fitted with vendor furnished PV panels. These units are fitted with an aluminum cross deck arranged to support a variety of large solar panels.
The large float sections also create a level floating surface so to not list or tilt under typical loading. Float sections are filled airtight with closed cell expanded polystyrene foam which does not allow for more the 3% water penetration. Even if punctured, the float sections will not sink, and replacement of individual float sections will be highly unlikely. Marine grade aluminum which will perform in any fresh, salt, or other water conditions is used as the main base framework which attaches to the top of the float sections, holds the solar panel frames, and is the structure for the service walkway on each unit.
Each section has a longitudinal work deck for personnel access and can be interconnected with adjacent floating sections and are designed for stacking. The floating solar platforms are hinged prior to deployment so the panels can be positioned at a preset or indexed angle of inclination. The inclination angle is set up during installation and mechanically lifted in place. The solar panels are grouped into hinged sections with a minimum number of panels each for weight consideration.
AccuSolar is not just making floating dock sections to hold PV panels, we are creating a safe stable platform to house PV panels. Keeping this in mind, we’ve incorporated 12” surface walkways that will provide easy and safe access for servicing and maintenance.
Our framed docks offer added strength due to the structural marine grade aluminum frame that surrounds them. Tilt angles are designed to hold PV Panels and are angled based on the specific location to provide optimal efficiency. The frames and tilt angle are made of rustproof, corrosion resistant marine grade aluminum. This unique manufacturing process enables us to manufacture floating dock systems that are not only durable, but easy to install and maintain.
