Soltec Launches SFOne Solar Tracker with Double Row 1P Configuration

Murcia-headquartered solar tracker manufacturer Soltec announced yesterday the launch of SFOne, a new solar tracker with a double row 1P configuration, which is said to be adaptable to all types of projects in the global market.

The Spanish company, which has experience in multi-stack 1P technology with the launch in 2009 of the SA Series tracker, has taken up this technology again.

SFOne includes Dy-Wind technology, which features advanced methodology for the design of wind-resistant tracking structures, and the optimisation of the Diffuse Booster system for low-light conditions.

The device, which will be available in all markets where the company has a presence, provides greater ease of installation, making the plant construction process faster, similar to the SF7 that Soltec already has on the market, reducing development time invested by 75%.

SFOne is a structure of lower height, which will help to reduce the visual impact of the plants where this new product is installed. Additionally, it is expected to offer the possibility of minimising imported components for manufacture in each country where the projects are developed, through Soltec’s factories, thus reducing the carbon footprint.

Raúl Morales, CEO of Soltec Power Holdings, said, “The idea of launching this new SFOne producer on the market responds to the need to offer an optimal service to our clients, with a broad portfolio that provides solutions that adapt to their needs and to the terrain of the projects.”

He added, “The new tracker consolidates our product portfolio, providing flexibility and versatility, and at the same time offering the quality guarantee of Soltec technology. We are convinced that it will be well received in the markets where we operate.”

Soltec’s solar trackers have been gaining popularity around the world. In March this year, the company announced two contracts in Brazil: one with Elecnor to supply bifacial trackers for a 359 MW project in Minas Gerais; and another agreement between Focus Energia and Soltec Energías Renovables S.L., to supply solar trackers for a 852 MW, whose installation phase is scheduled to begin in July 2021.
