SPI 15 - Exosun to unveil a perfected version of its Exotrack HZ single-axis solar tracker at Solar Power International
Thanks to its short rows, Exotrack HZ v2 smoothly follows undulated topography, drastically decreasing land grading works.
San Francisco, USA, September 10, 2015. At the occasion of Solar Power International, Exosun is launching a new version of its Exotrack HZ single-axis solar tracker. On the company's booth 5510, visitors will be able to take an up-close look at the Exotrack HZ v2 which has been engineered to further reduce overall costs and delivery lead times, offering an LCOE-friendly solution for utility-scale solar plants.
The system's intelligent design evolution, which integrates self grounded module clamps, significantly minimizes installation costs and time, representing less than 400 man-hours per MW. Exotrack HZ v2 offers fewer foundations than the market average and the market's most generous installation tolerances.
Thanks to its short rows, Exotrack HZ v2 smoothly follows undulated topography, drastically decreasing land grading works. Furthermore, optimized DC wire management allows to reduce wiring costs by 50% compared to other single-axis trackers.
What's more, its linked-row architecture and grease-free, balanced structure make it an extremely reliable solar tracking system, reducing O&M actions to an absolute minimum for 25 years. Its unique centralized control system can now pilot up to 10 MWp of trackers and allows on-site or remote actions on the trackers thereby drastically reducing frequency of site visits.
While maintaining the highest quality standards, this new version now also allows Exosun to propose a ‘local content' compliant solar tracking solution to meet local manufacturing requirements in countries such as South Africa and Brazil.
Highly flexible, Exotrack HZ v2 is a genuine revenue booster for utility-scale solar plant owners and developers.
