PV tracking equipment provider Soltec announced that it will supply 38MW of its SF Utility single-axis trackers for a PV installation in the Monument Valley region of the Navajo Nation in Arizona.

Monument Valley stands as a scenic landscape and presents a challenge for the project in terms of maintaining the natural environment of the surrounding area during installation.

SF Utility trackers were utilised due to their land-use enabling features and wide installation tolerances, which reduce land grading. Isolux Corsan Group was responsible of the engineering, procurement and construction of Kayenta Solar Plant.

José Alfonso Teruel, R&D Manager at Soltec, said: “For the Kayenta project we will supply our cable management solution that runs PV array cabling within the tracker torque tube and results in savings on trays, trenching and installation labor. Our wireless mesh communication network provides real time data between each tracker and central control with less material cost and installation labor.”

Raúl Morales, CEO of Soltec, added: “We are proud to have landed this unique project on the Navajo Nation. In addition to meeting cost effectiveness criteria, we were able to do so and also achieve low environmental impact and a very short timeline to supply and install.”
