Photovoltaic facility in Prahova of 108 kW had two-axis trackers delivered by Mecasolar (Mecanizados Solares SL), which said the plant is expected to have an annual output of 183.000 Kwh and save 90 tons of emissions. It features eight 13.15 kW trackers and more than 432 modules.
Solar trackers are capable of increasing photovoltaic solar energy production by more than 35%, when compared to a fixed installation, the company’s website said, adding this maximizes profits by reducing the investment in solar panels.
In May, Mecasolar, headquartered in Fustiñana, Spain, has supplied 1 MW in two axis trackers to a photovoltaic project in Miroslava, 400 kilometers north of capital Bucharest. In early July it announced a total of 47 trackers, using 420 axes of up to 10.8 kW per axis, and 18,960 modules of 240 W of nominal power would be installed in a new solar power project in Korkuteli in Turkey’s Antalya province.
The company specializes in the design, manufacture and supply of dual-axis and horizontal, azimuth or polar-aligned single-axis trackers, fixed structures for ground- and roof-mounted solutions, and Mecascrew foundation screws for photovoltaics. Mecasolar’s trackers with a total power of over 400 MW have been installed in more than 40 countries, according to its website. Its manufacturing plants are in Spain, Canada, United States and Greece.
