Spanish energy firm Acciona Energía and the Solar Energy Institute of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (IES-UPM) have claimed a world record for the amount of electricity generated from solar PV modules scientifically measured at one of Latin America’s largest solar plants.
Spain-headquartered solar tracker designer and manufacturer STi Norland has signed an agreement with project owners EDF Israel and Clalsun together with Belectric Israel to provide 35MW of its single-axis trackers for the Ashalim PV project.
With competition in the tracker marketplace becoming extremely fierce, rival companies are adding new features all the time aimed at minimising installation and operation costs, and enhancing durability. Here we profile some of the single-axis trackers currently available on the market and the innovative design features they offer.
Spain-based solar tracker and fixed structures manufacturer STi Norland has been chosen by renewables firm Acciona Energia to provide PV equipment and installations for around half of the El Romero solar plant, which will stand at 247MW in the Atacama desert of Chile.
