Soltec revolutionises the market with its new SF8 created for larger modules

FuturENERGY September-October 2020

Soltec, world leader in the manufacture and supply of solar trackers, has recently presented its new tracker, the SF8. Under the slogan “engineered for greatness”, the SF8 tracker aims to revolutionise the solar tracking market with a minimum configuration of 2×60 and between 4 and 6 strings.

This tracker is elegantly designed while benefiting from a reinforced structure for installation and high levels of yield on any terrain. The reinforced torque tube, with its new and improved geometry, along with the fully autonomous self-stow system, help strengthen the resistance of the tracker to adverse weather conditions. In addition, the SF8 tracker has a 22% more rigid structure compared to the previous generation of trackers from Soltec, the SF7. “We have applied all the knowledge acquired, in collaboration with RWDI, to design the most resilient tracker on the market”, confirms Sergio López, COO of Soltec.

SF8 is especially designed for the largest modules, of between 72 and 78 cells, which are starting to dominate the market. “As tracker manufacturers, we have to adapt our designs to market trends, always with the aim of offering our clients the highest tracker performance”, states Raúl Morales, CEO of Soltec.
