Project requirements

If you decide to go with a carport solution, your car park or ground area must fulfil certain criteria to allow us to implement your project.
If you decide to go with a carport solution, your car park or ground area must fulfil certain criteria to allow us to implement your project.

Project size

The size of the particular project plays an important role. We can only implement projects in which at least 500 solar panels are installed. The minimum requirements for the specific carports: – PMT CARPORT SINGLE: at least 150 metres in length or 60 parking spaces – PMT CARPORT DOUBLE: at least 75 metres in length or 60 parking spaces.

A minimum capacity of 900 solar panels is required to carry out projects outside of Germany. The following apply to the individual carport units:
  • PMT CARPORT SINGLE: at least 250 metres in length or 100 parking spaces
  • PMT CARPORT DOUBLE: at least 125 metres in length or 100 parking spaces

Carport requirements

Although our carports can be individualised to a great extent, there are some features that are generally fixed. For example, it is not possible to make carports without sheet metal or concrete.

Geographic location and terrain of the car park

To implement the solar panels on the carports as efficiently as possible, your car park must fulfil several geographic requirements. It should be located on as flat an area as possible without any inclines or slopes. Due to the statics, we cannot build carports on parking decks or buildings. Also too much shade from trees or other buildings would be a strike against building a PV roof carport.

FAQ

General information

Is there a minimum size for the project?

Yes. For our carports to be built, at least 60 parking spaces need to be created. The CARPORT Single model corresponds to 500 solar panels, and the CARPORT Double model to 700 solar panels. A minimum capacity of 100 parking spaces is required to carry out a project outside of Germany. You will need at least 900 solar panels for the CARPORT Single or 1200 solar panels for the CARPORT Double.

Is it possible to see the carports beforehand?

You can get an impression of our carports in use at the Netzsch Arena in Selb or at the P+R car park of the municipal utility company in Bamberg. You can also view our carports at Bosch in Eisenach by making an appointment with the plant security representative.

What factors could affect the construction?

In general, delays in building approvals, external inspections and country-specific standards may affect the building time. Location-specific challenges such as distances to buildings and property lines, underground pipe and cable routes, glare from a motorway, and fire extinguishing water pipes for additional structures can also influence the building the carports. The quality of the foundation soil, the height profile, seismic loads, vibrations from pile driving can also cause delays in the construction time. And lastly, nature conservation regulations, tree cutting work and the drainage situation can force changes in the planning.

Delivery & scope of services

What is included in the cost estimate?

  • Foundation with agreed anchoring depth based on pre-dimensioned load scenarios
  • Ready-mix concrete base with connection elements, grouting mortar and self-levelling mortar (up to a maximum 6 cm of terrain compensation)
  • Galvanised steel structure with connection elements
  • Purlin (wood/steel) with connection elements
  • Trapezoidal roofing with connection elements

What accessories can be ordered in connection to the carport?

  • Sheet metal roof edging: consisting of bargeboard, ridge plate and water baffle plate or fascia
  • Snow guards: an alternative fascia with additional tilt to stop snow from sliding down
  • Drainage: including box gutters (nominal size 333) with downpipes (DN100) to the ground surface and all other necessary connection elements. This is calculated for a downpipe on every second support (drainage measurement is a task for the building developer)
  • Substructure for PV system: Contains a short rail system for PV mounting with rails, clamps, bolts, clips. Cable ties and similar items are not included.

Do the carports have a long delivery time?

In general, the components are delivered within 6-8 weeks. The installation on the car parks can then begin.

Is it ready to use?

We will be happy to guide you through the entire process on the path to your ideal carport. The carport is installed by a construction company commissioned by the customer, which then hands the system over in a ready-to-use condition. We would be happy to provide a list of our partners.

Is the V-tube construction always included in the scope of delivery?

Yes. In addition to the V-tubes, we deliver the 180 HEA girders, the pre-fabricated concrete base element (with anti-collision protection at the same time), anchor elements, levelling compound under the concrete base, and the industrial grade trapezoidal metal sheeting for the roof. The wood or steel purlin is also included, depending on the option you have chosen.

Planning & applications

What is the planning procedure?

Give us the exact address and indicate where the car park is or where it will be built. Indicate the configuration of the carports and your requirements for the PV system. Important: If necessary, give us the maximum dimensions and capacity restrictions of the location. We can then proceed with the first steps of the customised planning.

What is the time scope that I should plan for the project?

In our experience, about six months should be set aside for the project. This does not depend on the delivery time or the pre-planning, but rather more on the necessary soil samples and other topics.

Is a building application necessary for a carport?

Yes. Carports are considered buildings and must be approved by the building authority.

Who makes the application to the building authority?

An architect who is authorised to obtain building permits submits the building application to the responsible building authority. The architect is commissioned by the customer.

Installation

Who installs the carport system?

The carport is installed by a construction company commissioned by the customer. We would be happy to provide a list of our partners.

Who orders and mounts the solar panels?

The solar panels are ordered by the customer and mounted on the roof of the carport by the construction company.

What all is involved in the installation of the PV system?

  • Assembly of the substructure
  • Laying the string cables to the generator connection box or power inverter without burying them
  • Establishment of roof access
  • Grounding the PV system (if necessary)
  • Filling out the measurement protocol
  • Labelling the strings
