Soltec Supplies SF7 Trackers to the Largest PV Power Plant in Colombia

Soltec expands market reach to supply 86 MW of trackers in the Colombian department of Cesar

Soltec is supplying 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. The plant will generate an average of 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 that will also contribute to reducing electricity price,” says Raúl Morales, CEO of Soltec.

With this project, Soltec continues strengthening its position in the Latin American solar tracker market, summing 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 count on 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.
