Nclave debuts a two-row solar tracker to boost its ground coverage ratio


Spain-based solar mounting and tracker manufacturer Nclave (now owned by Trina Solar) has a formidable portfolio of products with its single-axis tracker mono-row SP160, single-axis tracker multi-row SP1000 and fixed structure designs — in addition to its new twin tracker SP240. Nclave’s SP240 is another single-axis tracker designed with two rows to mitigate the dynamic and aero-elastic risks inherent in large trackers.

One of the main advantages of this tracker is the allowance to a better optimization of the ground (GCR) since it enables more power installation on a smaller surface. The company notes the system has great adaptability when installed on terrains with high/changing slopes.


Its configuration in two rows eases the access for maintenance and cleaning works which lets it endorse both the advantages of multi-row and mono-row trackers. All this should equate to savings in installation, operation and maintenance costs; decrease of commercial components by more than 25 percent / MW and a reduction in assembly time of up to 65 percent / Mw compared with competitors.

With more than 15 years of experience, 3.5 GW deployed and offices and production centers in five continents, Nclave, is a leading company in the development, design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of fixed tilt structures and solar trackers, including the design and execution of any foundation solution. Nclave offers solutions with the lowest installation costs on the one hand, and, during the life of the project, operation and maintenance.

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
