Constellium manufactures high-precision aluminium profiles for applications in the renewable energy sector.
The commercial use of wind and solar energy on an industrial scale is now part of daily life. Aluminium profiles in a multitude of shapes and alloys have contributed to this development, capitalizing on the metal’s high formability and lightweight properties. Aluminium profiles make it easy to turn photovoltaic arrays and solar panels into lucrative sources of electrical and thermal energy.
Whether used as part of a simple roof-mounted systems or a large-scale solar park covering many square kilometers, solar cells and panels framed in aluminium profiles are now an important part of the landscape.
At Constellium, we make frames for solar cells and panels used for domestic appliances and solar farms. These frame and stabilize the black solar panel.
We also produce sub-frames for solar farms. The solar panel, which is already framed by aluminium profiles, is mounted and fixed to the ground by using an aluminium sub-construction.
Our high-standard surface treatments ensure that both our solar frame profiles with extreme surface requirements and profiles used for solar power plant substructures can be simply and quickly fitted on site. This includes being sawn, drilled and cut to length according to precise specifications.
Aluminium’s high formability and lightweight properties make it an invaluable material for the renewable energy sector.
