Major horizontal single-axis solar tracker firm Soltec is to supply 90MW of its trackers to PV projects located in the regions of Guanajuato and Aguascalientes in Mexico.
Soltec will supply and install 3,019 units of its SF7 tracker equipment at the two plants of 22MW and 68MW in capacity, to be installed by the end of this year.
The firm has now supplied more than 2GW of its products to the Latin American market.
“These two projects in Latin America build on Soltec’s successful track-record there,” said Soltec CEO Raúl Morales. “Our solar trackers enable higher yield and greater site-filling options, and reduce material and labor, all combining to achieve the highest grade of customer success.”
“Meeting the tight supply deadlines is a challenge that Soltec is prepared for with our warehousing and logistics system Solhub,” said Fernando Sánchez, Soltec’s VP of Sales LATAM. “Solhub delivers unitized tracker components packaging onsite just-in-time and prepared for minimal additional onsite material handling.”
Soltec is also opening the first of its kind ‘Bifacial Tracking Evaluation Center’ (BiTEC) in Livermore, California to further scientifically evaluate the performance of bifacial PV modules and the tracking performance with single-axis trackers.
