Exosun expands its operations in solar tracking and opens a subsidiary in South Africa

Exosun South Africa (Pty) Ltd's local team will provide sales, engineering support, as well as training on installation and O&M of its products.

Martillac (France), January 22, 2015. Exosun, leading provider of solar tracking technologies for utility-scale ground-mounted solar plants, is pleased to announce the expansion of its international presence with the opening of a subsidiary in Cape Town. Exosun South Africa (Pty) Ltd's local team will provide sales, engineering support, as well as training on installation and O&M of its products. The company is also committed to local manufacturing of its trackers, in full aligment with the South African local content policy.


After successfully deploying 230 MW of solar tracking systems in Europe and America, Exosun is now entering the South African market which is booming thanks to the country's rapid economic development and increased electricity needs. In order to regulate and accelerate private investment in renewable energy, the South African government launched the Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Program in 2011 centered around RFP rounds.

"By establishing a subsidiary in Cape Town, we are able to optimally serve our customers based in South Africa with top-notch tracking systems and services adapted to their specific needs", declares Paula Korkie, Exosun's Business Development Manager in South Africa. "We are also developing partnerships with South African manufacturers to ensure high quality local production and reduce transportation costs."

"In this region with high solar irradiation levels, there is a significant market for solar trackers and it was important for us to build our presence here. We are confident that our technology, scalable and adaptable to all project and land types, will answer the needs of local and international PV plant developers, owners and operators in South Africa and the surrounding countries ", comments Frdric Conchy, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Exosun.

On this coming March 24 and 25, you will be able to meet Exosun's South African team at our booth E22 at the Solar Show Africa, Sandton Convention Centre, in Johannesburg.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
