Soltec, a manufacturer and supplier of single-axis solar trackers and related services in large-scale projects, supplies complete tracker equipment to two solar PV power plants in Israel. One of them is in the Bnei Shimon regional council while the second one is being constructed in the Merhavim regional council. The project counts on a total power capacity of 17 MW, 2 MW of them bifacial.
El-Mor Renewable Energies serves as a full EPC contractor for large-scale PV solar plants. El-Mor procured 534 units of the SF7 Single-Axis Tracker and 64 units of the SF7 Bifacial.
In 2015, Soltec manufactured the first tracker specifically designed to mount bifacial panels at a power plant in La Silla observatory, Chile. “This plant is unique, not only because of powering an astronomical observatory. It was the first utility plant with bifacial modules,” said Raúl Morales, CEO of Soltec.
The standard two-up portrait module tracker configuration designed by Soltec eliminates the terminal problem of a one-up configuration and the torque tube imposing constant shading on the backside PV active-area.
