NEXTracker Completes Tracker Commissioning for SunEdison Javiera Solar Project in Chile


State-of-Art Trackers Deployed in 69 MW SunEdison Solar Power Plant in Atacama Desert

FREMONT, CA, APRIL 7, 2015 - NEXTracker, Inc., designer and manufacturer of the worlds most advanced single axis PV trackers, today announced the completion of tracker commissioning for SunEdisons Javiera project in Chiles Atacama Desert. At 69.5 MW, the Javiera project is one of Latin Americas largest utility-scale solar power plants. SunEdison, the worlds largest renewable energy development company, developed and built the system.

"Thanks in part to NEXTrackers independent rows and reduced foundation requirements, our Javiera project was completed in record time - the mechanical aspects of this system were substantially complete in about 2 months," said Sasan Aminpour, Senior VP of Operations, SunEdison. "Collaborating with NEXTracker and building upon best practices pioneered during the construction of our nearby Crucero plant, SunEdison and NEXTracker refined lean construction techniques to dramatically accelerate deployment of a large power plant. NEXTrackers careful attention to component quality and customer support further facilitated the rapid installation."

"Were thrilled to have executed another successful project with SunEdison, a top leader in Latin American and global solar," said Dan Shugar, CEO of NEXTracker. "NEXTrackers higher energy yield and installation cost savings have now been proven across multiple large scale projects in Latin America. NEXTrackers unimpeded row design also provides valuable cost savings for panel cleaning in the dusty Chilean desert, and minimizes site grading requirements."
