DEGERenergie equips Swedish solar power project with patented MLD tracking systems

Horb am Neckar, Germany, August 11th, 2011. DEGERenergie has equipped a new solar power project in Sweden with its patented MLD tracking systems. Swedish company Solar Design Ab has installed the facility in Malmö. DEGERenergie is the global market leader for solar tracking systems.

The building-integrated photovoltaic installation with three DEGERtraker 3000HD systems was put into operation in July 2011. It was ordered and is now operated by the city of Malmö. DEGERtraker 3000HD systems were designed specifically for use in exposed locations and regions with strong wind. The acronym "HD" stands for "heavy duty".


Glenn Torsténi from Solar Design Ab: "We are very pleased with the quality of DEGERenergie's systems. Their installation is quick and easy, thanks to the user-friendly instructions." Solar Design Ab is specialized in photovoltaic systems. Representatives of the Swedish company are already planning to visit the DEGERenergie headquarters in Horb. "Among other things, we want to find out what other DEGERenergie systems could also be of interest for the Swedish market." At Solar Design Ab, there is keen interest in an even more intensive cooperation and, insofar as possible, in installing additional MLD tracking systems in Sweden.

DEGERenergie was founded in 1999 by Artur Deger and today is the world market leader in solar tracking systems. Worldwide, more than 45,000 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 fixed systems.

About DEGERenergie (www.DEGERenergie.com):

DEGERenergie is the leading manufacturer with the world's largest product range of single and dual-axis solar tracking systems. The company's market position is based on the unique patented Maximum Light Detection (MLD) technology developed by Artur Deger, which makes it possible to maximize the yield of solar power plants with an "intelligent" control. With the DEGERconecter, the solar modules are thus always aligned according to the brightest position in the sky with the highest energy yield. This way, the overall energy yield of solar power plants with MLD tracking is up to 45 percent higher than that of fixed systems and this difference is even more pronounced for peaks. With more than 45,000 systems installed in more than 45 countries, DEGERenergie is the global technological market leader. The company offers its customers all product related solutions – from the development and planning, production and sales to maintenance and service.

In its headquarters in Horb (Germany), its subsidiaries and supplier companies, DEGERenergie is currently employing a staff of nearly 400. The company was founded in 1999 and in 2001 won the Inventor Award of the German state of Baden-Württemberg for the MLD control module DEGERconecter. In 2005, DEGERenergie opened its first subsidiary in Spain, followed by subsidiaries in the USA and Greece in 2009. Additional business locations are planned for 2011. The company's production sites are located in Germany, Canada and the USA. CEO is Artur Deger.

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
