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.

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Easy monitoring with weather sensors from Lufft

Professional weather sensors form the heart of large solar plants supporting their operation and performance. Lufft was the first manufacturer to combine several sensors in one housing, bringing the largest multiparameter weather sensor family with 19 members into being. Many of them are well-suited for solar site assessment and continuous monitoring. The most commonly used one is the WS600 delivering data on temperature, air pressure, wind, relative humidity and precipitation. Through its open protocol, it can easily be attached to radiation sensors e.g. from Kipp&Zonen. Other models have an integrated Silicon, Second Class or Secondary Standard radiation sensor.
