GRUPO CLAVIJO WILL ATTEND SOLAR POWER INTERNATIONAL 2015 WITH AN INNOVATIVE AND ADVANCED SINGLE-AXIS TRACKER

The SP160 tracker represents the optimization of Grupo Clavijo's single-row tracking technology.

The Spanish firm Grupo Clavijo, a world leader in photovoltaic solar structures and trackers, will be present at Solar Power International 2015 (Anaheim, California, USA) to introduce its new single-axis tracker (SP160), the work of its R&D&I team.


The SP160 tracker represents the optimization of Grupo Clavijo's single-row tracking technology. While maintaining an excellent quality of the materials, the innovative new design has improved a number of key components, including the panel supports. Greater motor efficiency has also been achieved, resulting in a significant decrease in energy consumption, thus freeing motor power for cases in which repositioning is vital due to wind speeds.

The Grupo Clavijo research and development team has made great advances in the manufacturing of trackers for various thin-film panels, customised for each client. The combination of this panel type with Clavijo's made-to-measure tracking technology is being very well received, especially in the American market. In short, this tracker is highly versatile, efficient and cost-effective.

The Spanish company is once again demonstrating its commitment to the ongoing investment in tools for generating power, fast reaction calculations, and combinations of the two, through the improvement of in-house software developed by a highly-trained technical team and with the support of an executive committee that is oriented towards continual improvement.

With 975 MW installed all over the world and plans to surpass 1 GW in 2016, Grupo Clavijo is currently one of the world's leading companies in the solar structure and tracker sector, with a presence around the world and offices in Chile, the USA and Abu Dhabi.

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.
