Experience feedback

The advice of Maxime TUFFI, Account Manager at GROUPE FAUCHE

Our client contacted us regarding his 1.3 MWp power plant which was producing only 40% of its expected production. After few years expertise of the demonstrated defectiveness of the solar photovoltaic installation, our Group was mandated to remove more than 10 000 modules and to dismantle the integration system already in place. Then it came up to us the idea to put the Hélios B² mounting system, a solution which had never been used before. Our choice turned to Hélios B² because, on one hand, it is a system which is fixed into the purlin, an imperative for us, and on the other hand it is good value for money.

The advantages of Dome Solar

  • Rapidity of installation

Thanks to the Hélios B² mounting system and to its facility of pose, the delays indicated to our client were respected. The limited number of different pieces is also an important factor in the time saving process.

  • The team Dome Solar

We have established some good relationships with the members of the commercial service and the engineering department supplied us a detailed layout plan of quality, which allowed our installation team to be serene when coming on the work-site. We were not used to work with Dome Solar product but from now on you are one of our suppliers and, in this sense, we hope to prolong this good relationship which has started under the best auspices!
