Soltec, a leading manufacturer and supplier of single-axis solar trackers, has launched its SF7 Tandem tracker – the first tracker on the market to be linked in a 2-in-portrait (2P) configuration every two rows.
This model is an implementation of Soltec’s standard solar tracker, the SF7.
The characteristics of this solar tracker combine the best of the 2P trackers with the best of the two-row trackers, while reducing installation and operation costs.
The SF7 Tandem has a cardan that acts as an axle to join both trackers and is installed at a height of 1.8m, allowing vehicles to pass between the trackers. In this way, maintenance and cleaning of the power plant can be carried out more quickly, easily and effectively regardless of weather and climate conditions.
“With the SF7 Tandem we want to ensure the best service to our customers by reducing costs and installation times,” Raul Morales, CEO of Soltec, said.
“This tracker keeps the best characteristics of our standard SF7, with the features of a two-row solar trackers.”
This tracker model connected in two-rows also has the TeamTrack 2.0 to maximise the generation of the solar power plant. The system includes an asymmetrical backtracking that considers land inclination and characteristics, daytime and season.
Soltec’s TeamTrack allows for cost reduction in projects with slopes or non-uniform land, and the system does not require maintenance.
With 20 per cent fewer components, 45 per cent less drives and 50 per cent fewer engines in the tracker controller than a 1P tracker, the SF7 Tandem is faster to install, resulting in reduced costs and installation times.
