Soltec supplies SF7 trackers to two AES’s 238-MW project in Chile

  • These plants add to the more than 2 GW supplied by Soltec to this Andean country
  • Both projects will avoid the emission of 491,178 metric tons of CO2 to the atmosphere
  • The power generated will be enough to supply over 77,000 homes

Soltec will supply its single-shaft tracker SF7 to two projects in Chile totalling 238 MW. These projects, owned by Chilean company AES Andes, will be equipped with 5,227 solar trackers

With these two power plants, Soltec has an accumulated supply record of more than 2 GW in projects supplied and installed in Chile, country where the company has acquired ample experience after setting up there in 2014 to develop its first project in Latin America. After nearly eight years, Soltec has provided supply and installation services to projects under extreme conditions, such as those in the Atacama Desert, and has been a pioneer in the installation and adaptation of bifacial technology in solar tracking systems.

Both projects will avoid the emission of 491,178 metric tons of CO2 to the atmosphere, generating enough electricity to supply 77,290 households. These plants will be equipped with a total of 4,367 piles and 439,068 modules.

Raúl Morales, Soltec’s CEO, has expressed his satisfaction with these two new projects: “Further collaborating to bring energy transition to reality in Chile does not only make us proud as a company, it is actually our responsibility. These projects are the latest in a long list of solar plants in which Soltec has been a key player for years. Our consolidation in the Andean market is a reality, and the fact that clients continue to trust us speaks volumes about the quality of our products and services. After collaborating with AES for many years in projects in Chile, Panama, Colombia and the United States, it fills us with joy to continue working with companies like this to the advent of a cleaner world”.
