Soltec debuts in Mexico supplying 238 MW of solar trackers

Soltec, a leading manufacturer and supplier of single-axis solar trackers, will supply and install 8,256 units of its equipment for a 238 MW PV plant in Mexico. It is the company’s first large-scale PV plant in this Latin American country, a region where SF Utility trackers are leading the solar market.

This project presented a challenge in data communication due to its great distances, both for centralizing plant operating parameters and for nearby-tracker maintenance tasks, Soltec solar trackers responded with wireless communications from tracker-level NFC to SCADA.
