Exosun to supply 6.8 MW of solar trackers for a PV plant in Oregon, USA

Tracker installation, executed by Exosun, will begin in September 2015, with commissioning planned for November 2015.

San Francisco, USA, August 27, 2015. Exosun, leading provider of perfected solar tracking technologies for utility-scale ground-mounted solar plants, has inked a contract with a major clean energy producer to supply and install its trackers on a 6.8 MWp PV plant located in the North American state of Oregon.


The solar plant, installed over 40 acres of high desert land, will be equipped with 44 Exotrack® HZ horizontal single-axis solar trackers. They will support 21,964 PV modules, orienting them toward the sun throughout the day to significantly increase energy yield.

In order to lower transportation costs and time, and contribute to local employment, the majority of tracker components will be manufactured by American and Mexican high quality suppliers, rigorously selected by Exosun.

Tracker installation, executed by Exosun, will begin in September 2015, with commissioning planned for November 2015.

"We are very pleased with this challenging project in Oregon and by the rapid response and schedule our team was able to formulate," comments Jeb Seder, Managing Director of Exosun Inc. "Our Exotrack HZ single-axis trackers have been designed for maximized plant design flexibility, quick and cost-effective construction and minimal OPEX. This, coupled with our extensive tracker installation experience, is what convinced our client to work with us."

On September 15, 16, and 17, Exosun will be exhibiting at the Solar Power International trade show, Anaheim convention center, California, booth #5510.

Soltec Solar Trackers - SF7 Bifacial

Soltec manufactures and supplies solar trackers designed and proven for extreme climate conditions, which is an ideal solution for any region's environment. Soltec's trackers are self-powered, requiring no additional PV module or grid-powered connection. Bifacial modules collect energy on both the front and rear sides, capturing reflected irradiance from the ground surface under and around the tracker and from other modules. Depending on site conditions, bifacial yield-gain can reach +30 percent.
