MECASOLAR delivered 5,169 solar trackers, equivalent to 61.4 MW, and fixed structures for 203 PV solar projects in 2001. Italy, Spain, US, Canada, Greece and UK were MECASOLAR's main markets.
The firm's solar trackers and fixed structures have also been installed in solar PV plants in France, Australia, Colombia, Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Turkey, China, Lithuania, Sweden and Portugal. In fact, of the company's total sales in 2011, 85% were exports.
MECASOLAR relies for commercial and technical support on PROINSO's International Network of Qualified Installers, which has 1,900 members offering their services to customers in more than 60 countries. Thanks to the 2011 figures, MECASOLAR reached a total of 343.4 MW supplied since it was established in 2005. The amount is equivalent to 27,169 solar trackers manufactured and installed. Currently, the company's single- and dual-axis solar trackers and its fixed structures can be found in 498 solar PV farms around the world.
The multinational company has manufacturing plants in Spain, Italy, Greece, US and Canada, and branches in UK, Germany, France and China.
According to MECASOLAR sources, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and India are the target markets where the company is planning to start operating in the near future. Also, the firm is considering product diversification strategies to include other solar technologies using tracking systems.
Specifically, throughout 2012, MECASOLAR will focus mostly on the recently launched 114.4 kWp polar aligned tracker. The new product is modular and scalable, and can be assembled on site, which ‘allows for easy transport and installation and reduces costs down to those of fixed structures approximately,' sources said.
Management sources have announced the upcoming launch of new products that ‘improve the PR of installations, thus making them more profitable.'
