Hanwha Q Cells Japan Co Ltd, a Japanese subsidiary of Hanwha Q Cells Co Ltd, announced two mounting systems for less-than-50kW solar power generation systems to be set up on the roofs of buildings, factories, etc, Aug 17, 2016.

One is "Anchor-less Flat Roof Mounting System," which enables to install solar panels on a reinforced concrete roof without making holes in it. The product is manufactured by Nihon Form Service Co Ltd.

The other is "Mounting System for Large-corrugated Slates," which reduces load on slate roofs that use thin plate-like materials. Load on roof materials was reduced by using metal fittings that do not directly transmit load to a slate roof. It is manufactured by Wakai Sangyo (Higashiosaka City, Osaka Prefecture).
