DEGERenergie: MLD tracking attracts keen interest in Australia – great demand for off-grid solutions

Horb am Neckar, Germany, June, 2011. DEGERenergie reports keen interest in its MLD tracking systems in Australia. During the Clean Energy Week in Melbourne in early May, the company above all noticed a growing demand for off-grid solutions that also pay off without subsidized feed-in tariffs.

With more than 40,000 systems installed worldwide, DEGERenergie is the global market leader for solar tracking systems.

Together with its new Australian distribution partner Solar Inverters Pty Ltd., DEGERenergie participated in the Clean Energy Week. According to Christopher Seng, area sales manager of DEGERenergie, the company's presentation at the Solar Inverters booth was a great success. "At the moment, against the backdrop of falling feed-in tariffs, the demand for off-grid solutions and units for the self-supply of factories, schools and public buildings is growing fast in Australia. With the high and steadily increasing yield possible thanks to our MLD technology, we can perfectly meet this demand."

"The fair has even more convinced us that, in the medium term, we will be very successful on the Australian market." says Christopher Seng. "On this account, we are already making every effort to also solidify our excellent position as world market leader in Australia. Part of our strategy is to begin production in Australia, starting from the third quarter of this year. This way, we want to give our local customers an additional financial incentive to integrate DEGERtraker systems into their solar farms."

To further enhance its popularity, DEGERenergie will present its MLD technology at the ‘All-Energy Australia 2011' trade fair in October.

Together with its distribution partner Solar Inverters Pty Ltd., DEGERenergie is currently establishing a showcase project in New South Wales, where DEGERenergie's systems are presented live. For the ‘showcase', six type 5000HD DEGERtraker systems are being installed. Christopher Seng: "The Australian states offer targeted subsidies for smaller projects. This way, individual projects equipped with two to six 5000HD DEGERtraker systems are especially economically attractive."

DEGERenergie was founded in 1999 by Artur Deger and today is the world market leader in solar tracking systems. Worldwide, more than 35,000 DEGERenergie systems are installed in over 40 countries. The company is represented in Spain, Greece and North America with its own subsidiaries and cooperates with local distribution and service partners in many countries across the world. The patented DEGERenergie Maximum Light Detection (MLD) technology makes it possible to improve the energy yield of solar power plants by up to 45 percent compared to rigid systems.

3Mâ„¢ Extreme Sealing Tape is a family of single coated, pressure sensitive adhesive tapes designed for difficult sealing applications. The backing on this tape is an ionomer film that is very tough yet flexible and abrasion resistant. The very soft and thick acrylic adhesive has excellent sealing properties and good outdoor durability. This single coated tape is designed to seal over an existing joint, seam, or penetration. The adhesive is designed to adhere well to the ionomer film so that overlapping tape joints can be made while maintaining a strong seal. 3Mâ„¢ Extreme Sealing Tape - instant sealing that rolls on fast and looks good.
