MECASOLAR to present solar trackers at ENREG ENERGIA REGENERABILA, in Romania

The 5th international trade fair and conference on renewable energy and energy efficiency will be held from 6 to 8 March in Arad, Romania, in the border with Hungary and Serbia.------ At the event, MECASOLAR will exhibit its solar trackers, fixed structures, foundation screws and solutions for PV installations in Romania.------ The solar tracking systems from MECASOLAR increase the efficiency of solar power production, which would benefit Romanian customers affected by the government's decision to cut the number of green certificates per MWh.------ With its manufacturing plant in Thessaloniki, Greece, MECASOLAR has become a leading supplier of solar trackers in eastern Mediterranean countries, delivering products to projects in Cyprus, Bulgaria, Turkey, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and particularly Greece.

26 February 2013. MECASOLAR, a multinational company that designs, manufactures and supplies solar trackers, fixed structures and foundation screws for big PV solar projects, will participate in the ENREG ENERGIA REGENERABILA trade fair, to be held from 6 to 8 March. This international event focused on renewable energy and energy efficiency will draw more than 2,000 visitors to Arad, a Romanian city in the border with Hungary and Serbia.


This year, the trade fair, attracting experts in PV solar power, is holding its 5th edition. Once again, it will be a space for sharing know-how and information, exhibiting products and services, and making contacts in the Romanian solar PV industry.

Also, during the trade fair there will be a lecture centred on the changes and risks of the PV solar sector. Here MECASOLAR will present its newest dual-axis and polar aligned or horizontal single-axis trackers, which can best adapt to the Romanian market. The lecture will be delivered by engineer Giorgos Mixoudis, who works at MECASOLAR Greece.

MECASOLAR has manufactured and delivered more than 343MW in solar trackers and structures to more than 500 PV solar farms in more than 40 countries in all five continents. The company has manufacturing plants in Spain, Italy, Canada, USA and Greece.
At ENREG ENERGIA REGENERABILA, MECASOLAR will take a step towards consolidating its presence in Romania, where the multinational company is working jointly with several developers.

Recently, the national energy regulator (ANRE) announced that this year the country would cut the number of green certificates in solar projects from 6GC/MWh to 4GC/MWh. Currently, green certificates amount to 27-55 MWh ($29-$73 MWh) per GC for 15 years. In the face of GC reduction, with MECASOLAR trackers Romanian users will be able to increase return on investment.

Current projects reach over 1,200MW. 150MW of them are now under way, expected to be finished by the end of this year in order to get cheap electricity prices prior to the reduction in GC/MWh announced by the Romanian government.

With its manufacturing plant in Thessaloniki, Greece, MECASOLAR has become a leading supplier of solar trackers in eastern Mediterranean countries, delivering products to projects in Cyprus, Bulgaria, Turkey, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and particularly Greece.
What is more, PROINSO, exclusive retailer of MECASOLAR products, currently has six Romanian companies in its International Network of Qualified Installers. These Romanian firms are ENERGOVOLTAIC GROUP, EUROMAGNUM TRADE, PANTUROIU O. DINU CONSTANTIN I.I., POMARIONE COMP S.R.L., SARA INSTALL S.R.L. and TERRA ENERGY CONCEPT S.R.L.
MECASOLAR News

To the trade fair in Romania, MECASOLAR will bring its 140kWp horizontal single-axis solar tracker, launched in late 2012. The new solar tracker's modular, low-height structure results in simple assembly, simpler than that of fixed structures, and generates 30% more energy.

Another remarkable aspect of the assembly on the field is that all the parts (beams, rails, etc.) are held together with fasteners and no welding is required, which saves time and reduces costs. The tracker can have up to 12 axes moved by a single motor. Each axis can carry up to 48 modules, 11.6kW per axis. This means that each horizontal tracker with a single motor can reach a power of 140kWp and a solar panel area of 960m2.//

Kipp & Zonen - DustIQ the novel soiling monitoring solution for solar panels

Soiling of the panel glass is one of the major problems in the rapidly expanding solar energy market, with the attendant loss of efficiency and reduction in performance ratios. Now, there's a new, simple and very cost-effective alternative. Based on Kipp & Zonen's unique Optical Soiling Measurement (OSM) technology, DustIQ can be easily added to new or existing solar arrays and integrated into plant management systems. The unit is mounted to the frame of a PV panel and does not need sunlight to operate. It continuously measures the transmission loss through glass caused by soiling, so that the reduction in light reaching the solar cells can be calculated.
