Mecasolar launches polar aligned tracker that can drive up to 114.4 kWp with one motor

Mecasolar has recently launched a new polar aligned tracker, the only PV solar tracker that can drive up to 114.4 kWp with a single controller and motor, thus reducing the costs per installed Wp. This new product allows easy transport and installation because it is fully modular and scalable, which means the final assembly can be done at the location.

This new single-axis polar aligned solar tracker (MS-1EP) by Mecasolar carries up to 44 tilted axes on a north-south line on which the PV panels rotate. Each axis can carry a total of 2.6 kWp and all of them are interconnected via a transmission bar. One motor can drive up to 730 sq m of PV panels (max. 114.4 kWp).

Its structure is modular and scalable to 10 modules per axis, or 440 modules per tracker. The Mecasolar polar aligned tracker is astronomically controlled. Backtracking can be used as well, which allows for increased output (+30%) and PR in the installation as compared to a fixed mount system.

Mecasolar?s new product is the result of broad experience in the PV industry and a hard-working R&D team. Competitive advantages include simple modular assembly at the solar installation, easy transport of the tracker?s parts, and robust structure made of hot-dip galvanised steel (under ISO 1461 standard) that provides corrosion protection and durability.

The technicians at Mecasolar explain that the new tracker has been designed to be used with different foundation systems (with or without concrete, via foundation screws), which saves time in assembly and ground preparation too. ?Land levelling, which is not permitted by environmental authorities in certain locations, is not required, which reduces work costs and avoids affecting the land,? they add.

Foundation screws can be used to fix Mecasolar?s new tracker; for example, Mecascrew, the universal foundation screw the company launched in June 2011. Compatible foundation screws are admitted in the structure as well.

Furthermore, thanks to the axes? simple modular design, they can be used with other PV modules available on the market. In addition, the system requires low maintenance and involves reduced consumption. Also, it has an active wind protection system including an anemometer and a vane to determine the safest position.
