Soltec supplying solar trackers for Colombia’s largest PV plant

Enel Green Power Spain to build a photovoltaic solar plant in Totana

Soltec is a leader in single-axis solar trackers supply. The company recently closed a deal to supply 2,776 units of its SF7 tracker equipment at an 86.2 MW PV power plant in northern Colombia’s Cesar department.

The SF7 trackers will mount around 250,000 solar modules to follow the sun and optimize their yield performance. In detail, the plant will generate an average 176 GWh of clean energy per year, becoming the largest solar power plant in Colombia. The PV plant is currently under construction and will be operational by the end of 2018.

“Currently, Colombia’s energy generation depends enormously on hydroelectric power plants, which in drought season can be a real problem. This can be easily solved by complementing with solar energy. This move will also contribute to reducing electricity price,” says Raúl Morales, CEO of Soltec.

Soltec continues its expansion process by supplying 86 MW of solar trackers in the Department of Cesar

With this project, Soltec continues strengthening its position in the Latin American tracker market. Moreover, it is adding to more than 2 GW of solar trackers supplied in the region. “Soltec is on-track with global and regional expansion plans, and our results in Latin America are especially gratifying,” adds Morales.

The Cesar PV power plant will have wireless communications and a patented self-powering tracker solution. “This self-powering solution enables complete tracker module-fill and supplies the lowest cost operational power available onsite and independently at each tracker,” informs Soltec’s R&D Manager José Alfonso Teruel.

Soltec’s global operations and workforce includes over 750 people that combine experience and innovation. The company’s develops its manufacturing labor from Argentina, Brazil, China, and Spain; furthermore, it has offices in Australia, Chile, Denmark, United States, India, Israel, Italy, Mexico, and Peru.
