A Belgian contribution to the largest solar park in the World

In March VRT News (Belgian Broadcast) sounded the alarm concerning the drastic reduction in the number of orders for new solar panel installations in Belgium. That is not the case in India. The Indian state Gujarat is home to Charanka Solar Park, the biggest solar park in the World, and still growing.

Materials Consult is pleased to announce that it made a substantial contribution to the continuing expansion of Charanka Solar Park. The Belgian materials engineering office has been asked to give its advice on the quality control of the support framework that carries a portion of the solar panels. As manager Frans Vos says, "Renewable energy is only sustainable to the extent that the energy generating plants themselves and the materials used are durable. With targeted materials-science advice, Materials Consult contributes on a daily basis to an environmentally friendly future".
