The companies in the OPDE Group MECASOLAR and PROINSO will take part on 28 and 29 May in the 3rd edition of Solar Power Mexico, the leading show in the solar power industry to take place in Mexico City. MECASOLAR, a multinational firm specialising in the design and manufacture of solar trackers, fixed structures for ground- and roof-mounted installations, and foundation screws for PV solar farms, is attending the event with the aim to strengthen its leadership in Mexico.
This country has set the goal to increase renewable energy generation to 35% by 2026. Currently, it is one of the Latin American countries with the most opportunities for the solar industry.
For this reason, MECASOLAR is travelling to Mexico with the aim of bringing closer to this North American market some of its solutions, such as the horizontal single-axis tracker, whose supplies to solar projects in the country amounted to 38.5MWp through April 2014.
According to MECASOLAR sources, the 144kWp horizontal single-axis tracker is a modular, low-height structure characterised by simple assembly and higher output, and requiring no welding on location, which means higher return on investment for solar PV projects.
A number of variants of this tracker were launched in 2012 and sold very well around the world, Mexico included. This tracker can have up to 12 axes moved by a single motor, and each axis can carry up to 48 modules, 11.6kW per axis. This means that each horizontal tracker with a single motor can reach a power of 144kWp and a solar panel area of 960m2.
To date, MECASOLAR has manufactured and delivered 400MW in solar trackers and structures to solar PV plants in more than 40 countries in all five continents.
