5B Solutions

Introducing 5B Maverick

5B MaverickTM is an Australian-designed ground mount solar solution designed to be safer, more cost effective and faster to deploy for offgrid, commercial and industrial, and large-scale solar power generation, compared to traditional single axis solar trackers or comparable solar racking solutions.

Robust and redeployable, each 5B Maverick array consists of up to 90 solar panels, mounted on specially designed racks, and optimised for the workhorse 540-550W module class of the utility scale solar industry.

5B Maverick is a fully prefabricated, plug & play solar farm in a box.

5B Maverick at a glance

  • Safe: Reduced deployment times, less heavy equipment, and less onsite labour can result in a significant improvement in the safety for solar farm deployment, particularly when compared to traditional single axis solar trackers, or comparable solar racking solutions.
  • Cost effective: Efficiencies in assembly, deployment and logistics can result in lower cost of megawatt hour of energy when compared to traditional single axis solar trackers, or comparable solar racking solutions.
  • Fast deployment: The prewired, preconfigured, solar farm in-a-box design can deliver significant reductions in deployment times, when compared to fixed-mount and trackers.
  • Low onsite labour: Significant reductions in the onsite labour requirements and the cost of civil works associated with traditional solar farm construction in sites.
  • Powerful: No corridors, no moving parts and minimal gaps between structures means you can get the same energy output as you would from fixed-mount trackers on significantly less land.

    5B Maverick blocks are pre-assembled and prewired at a factory, then packed vertically so that four blocks can be fitted into a standard 40 foot shipping container with a total weight of under the maximum 6 tonne payload. Once onsite 5B Mavericks blocks can be easily unloaded and expanded into a ground-mount East-West solar array, requiring minimal ground penetration, and no need for cable trenching or significant ground work.

    As a result, 5B Mavericks can be significantly faster and safer to deploy than traditional single axis solar trackers, or comparable solar racking solutions, and require fewer people are on-site.
