Mechatron offering CPV tracker insight at CPV USA 2012

European tracker manufacturers Mechatron will be joining the exhibition at CPV USA 2012 on 15-16 October in San Jose, CA.

Reliability has been a key issue for the CPV market, affecting the technology's bankability, performance and commercialization potential. Increasingly, industry players have been looking for new companies and innovative solution providers to remedy this, particularly when it comes to tracking.


PV Insider is therefore delighted to announce that Mechatron S.A., leading manufacturer of single & dual-axis solar trackers, will be joining the exhibition at CPV USA 2012 next month. The European company has been working on research for the past decade, pioneering design and steady growth while investing dynamically in structures, new technologies and scientific personnel.

"We feel confident that our continued innovations are of great interest to the CPV industry today," stated a Mechatron representative. "We will be glad to offer insight into our innovative approach to develop and produce solutions with Mechatron's unique proprietary technology for solar trackers and know-how accumulated."

"The conference will provide the opportunity for us to meet and network with potential new clients," the company added, "as bright innovations can always produce efficient market and customer driven solutions."
