Structural Reinforcement Project for Photovoltaic Power Plant in Buildings

In this project a review of the project was carried out and the analysis of the existing support structures of the photovoltaic panels for energy production in 2 buildings, Lisbon and Coimbra, of a company in the energy sector.
It started with the analysis of the existing project, having carried out site visits and several structural verifications, namely of the most complex or risky points, in order to examine the safety conditions of the structures.
Also in this first phase, the resistance capacities of the installed structures were analysed, namely to winds considered strong and exceptional.
The next phase was characterised by the study of risk mitigation measures, where the existing structure was taken into consideration, the reinforcement project was prepared and the construction work was monitored in order to guarantee the structure’s resistance capacity.
