Soltec supplies 491 solar trackers to Oregon PV plant
Eagle Point project increases Soltec's US portfolio to 229 MW
Soltec will supply complete PV tracking equipment to the Eagle Point plant. The 13 MW project is located in the state of Oregon and is being implemented by US project developer Cypress Creek Renewables.
"Our trackers require fewer piles per MW and reduce ground-breaking operations to a minimum, helping to preserve the site's fragile ecosystem, as the project is located in a wetland area," said José María Lozano, Global Director of Engineering at Soltec. "In addition, our trackers have independent rows and shorter lengths, which allowed us to design the plant with the trackers arranged diagonally to make maximum use of the available space.
491 Soltec SF Utility solar trackers will be produced and shipped in less than 40 days to this plant located very close to the Rogue Valley International Airport outside Medford, Oregon.
Eagle Point is expected to generate more than 22 GWh of clean energy annually, which is equivalent to avoiding 16,000 tons of CO2 per year.
"We are very proud to be chosen once again by Cypress Creek Renewables," said Raul Morales, CEO of Soltec. "The success we bring to our customers is due to the combination of a high-performance product with Soltec's proven reliability as a project partner."
