Mecasolar will produce trackers at new US site



MECASOLAR has announced it will be opening a new production plant in San Francisco, which will start producing one- and two-axis solar trackers and fixed structures in the first quarter of 2010. This initiative reflects the interest of Mecasolar and the OPDE Group.

Mecasolar will exhibit two new products at Intersolar North America: its new fixed structures and new one-axis azimuth seasonal trackers. The fixed structures are designed for ground level installations and large solar photovoltaic plants.

With this expansion to its product range, Mecasolar said it responds to the needs of the PV market for installations at ground level. The company is moving on from the two-axis solar trackers, which it has been manufacturing since 2004.

The new range of products will be manufactured and assembled by production plants in Spain and Greece; as well as the new production plants scheduled to be started up in Italy and the U.S at the end of 2009.

Mecasolar expects to reach a production capacity for fixed structures and single- and dual-axis trackers of 200MW/year by 2010.

The distribution of both the fixed structure and the 1-Axis Seasonal Azimuth tracker, will be performed exclusively by PROINSO, an engineering and distribution company which was already conducting the distribution of 2-axis MECASOLAR trackers and also is a leader in the TRINA and REC distribution modules, as well as international partner of SMA in the supply of large PV plants.
