June 17 (Renewables Now) Spanish solar tracker maker Soltec Power Holdings SA (BME:SOL) today launched a new product, a one-in-portrait (1P) single-axis tracker with a double row configuration.
Dubbed SFOne, the new tracker model is specifically designed for larger-sized modules, with 72 and 78 cells, and is self-powered with a dedicated module, Soltec said.
In 2009, Soltec released its SA Series 1P multi-row tracker and then focused on specialising in 2P configurations. The company said that, after coming up with innovative solutions for 2P, it is bringing back the 1P configuration to its product portfolio.
To design the new tracker, Soltec applied the Dy-Wind technology, which features the most advanced methodology for the design of wind-resistant tracking structures, and optimised the Diffuse Booster system for low-light conditions.
The SFOne tracker is also a structure of lower height, which will make the solar plant less visually striking. The company says the tracker will be easy to install, promising that plant construction time would be reduced by 75%.
The SFOne will be available in all markets where Soltec operates.
