Soltec makes its debut in Mexico with the supply of 238 MW of solar trackers
The single-axis solar tracker manufacturer leads the Latin American market and has experienced a global growth of more than 700% in 3 years.
Soltec will supply and install 8,256 units of its solar technology for a 238 MW plant in Mexico. It is the company's first large-scale PV project in this Latin American country, a region where its SF Utility solar trackers are leading the market.
"The large distances in this project could pose a challenge in data transmission, both for centralising plant operation parameters and for tracker maintenance tasks," said Soltec CEO Raúl Morales. "However, our solar trackers respond to this particularity with a wireless communication system from the SCADA software to the tracker itself, which for the first time incorporates NFC technology".
This solar plant joins other projects across the Americas that make Soltec the fastest growing European renewable energy company, according to the FT1000 list published by the Financial Times.
"Our impressive economic growth is obviously accompanied by the growth of our global team," said Fernando Sanchez, Soltec's commercial vice president for Latin America. "Thanks to this project, around 350 people will be hired in the region.
