Array Technologies provides solar trackers for Facebook facility and opens new office in Madrid

Array Technologies has announced that it will partner with Affordable Solar to install solar trackers at Facebook’s upcoming data center located in Los Lunas, New Mexico, USA. The company has also announced that it has opened a new office in Madrid, Spain to better serve its growing global customer base in Europe.

Array Technologies is partnering with local companies to bring solar tracking power to Facebook’s new data center in New Mexico. Array Technologies has been selected to provide solar trackers for three 10 MW-AC projects to help Facebook’s newest data center be powered 100 percent by renewable energy. Array Technologies was chosen for this project due to its high reliability, which will allow Facebook to deliver 100 percent server uptime over the 30-year design life of the solar trackers.


Alongside engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm Affordable Solar, Array will install solar trackers throughout 2017 and complete the first of three 10 MW-AC installations by the beginning of 2018. Affordable Solar was awarded the contract by Public Service Company of New Mexico (PNM) to build the three sites.

Array Technologies has also recently expanded with a new office in Madrid, Spain. This announcement is the latest of many new international offices to open, including Australia, Mexico and the MENA region. The mission of the Spain office, led by Director of International Sales and Business Development Martin Mitscher, is to provide additional support to Array’s growing international customer base headquartered in Europe.

Array’s innovative DuraTrack HZ v3 was recently selected as a finalist for the prestigious Intersolar AWARD due to its streamlined design, flexibly linked architecture and stow-free strategy, which combined offer the lowest cost of ownership and highest reliability. As a part of Array’s finalist status, President Thomas Conroy will present at the Intersolar Europe conference on Wednesday, May 31st at 12:00. Interested parties can view the DuraTrack HZ v3 and meet the Array Technologies team at booth A4.380, May 31-June 2 in Munich, Germany.
