You may have heard that the solar industry’s largest trade show, Solar Power International, is happening next week. And we’ve been previewing a ton of standout products you need to see while in Anaheim. Well, here’s one more:
Exosun is launching a new version of its Exotrack HZ single-axis solar tracker. At the company’s booth (No. 5510), visitors will be able to take an up-close look at the Exotrack HZ v2 which has been engineered to further reduce overall costs and delivery lead times, offering an LCOE-friendly solution for utility-scale solar plants.
The system’s intelligent design evolution, which integrates self grounded module clamps, significantly minimizes installation costs and time, representing less than 400 man-hours per MW. Exotrack HZ v2 offers fewer foundations than the market average and the market’s most generous installation tolerances.
Thanks to its short rows, Exotrack HZ v2 smoothly follows undulated topography, drastically decreasing land grading works. Furthermore, optimized DC wire management allows to reduce wiring costs by 50% compared to other single-axis trackers.
What’s more, its linked-row architecture and grease-free, balanced structure make it an extremely reliable solar tracking system, reducing O&M actions to an absolute minimum for 25 years. Its unique centralized control system can now pilot up to 10 MWp of trackers and allows on-site or remote actions on the trackers thereby drastically reducing frequency of site visits.
Exotrack HZ v2 is delivered with an efficient robotic module cleaning solution. With reduced human intervention and its capacity to clean without water, the system offers increased cleaning performance at a low cost.
While maintaining the highest quality standards, this new version now also allows Exosun to propose a ‘local content’ compliant solar tracking solution to meet local manufacturing requirements in countries such as South Africa and Brazil.
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 discuss 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.
