Soltec Supplies 162 MW of Solar Trackers to the Apodi Power Plant in Brazil

Soltec Supplies 162 MW of Solar Trackers to the Apodi Power Plant in Brazil

This project brings Soltec’s supply record to 909 MW in the country and 1.7 GW in Latin America

Soltec, a leading manufacturer and supplier of single-axis solar trackers and related services in large-scale projects, is supplying complete tracker equipment to the Apodi solar PV power plant located in the Brazilian state of Ceará. The project was developed by Scatec Solar, the Norwegian independent solar energy provider. Scatec Solar chose Soltec’s SF7 tracker amidst strong competition, procuring 5,368 units of the innovative independent-row tracker.

The next generation SF7 tracker was launched this past summer with no array-gaps on the tracker, achieving complete tracker module-fill that enables up to 5% greater yield density than competitors. It also reduces parts count and labor for lower installation time and costs.

“With 909 MW supplied and underway in Brazil, Soltec has proven to be a reliable partner in large-scale projects. Soltec’s strong manufacturing and supply capacity in Brazil enables customer project success,” said Carlos G. Mena, Country Manager Brazil.

Soltec manufactures locally in Brazil in compliance with FINAME accreditation regulations granted by the Brazilian Development Bank. The certification enables Soltec to supply equipment under attractive financing arrangements, and to help grow local economies.

The PV power plant, sited in the municipality of Quixeré of Northeast Brazil, is expected to generate 350 GWh of clean energy annually, avoiding the emission of 203,500 tons of carbon dioxide. Once in commercial operation, the plant will provide energy equivalent to the demand of 171,000 Brazilian households.

“We are proud to partner for the first time with the independent solar energy provider Scatec Solar,” stated Raúl Morales, CEO of Soltec. “Key features of SF7 that Scatec Solar values highly include fewest piles-per-MW and greater installation tolerances on steep-slope and irregular land.”
