Array Technologies Inc. (ATI) has completed deliveries of its DuraTrack HZ single-axis solar tracker for the 35 MW Avalon Solar project in Pima County, Ariz. JinkoSolar is supplying 114,750 of its 305 W PV modules for the project.
ATI says the trackers for the project represent its latest model and feature a fully bolted assembly, module clamps with integrated grounding and an increased 120-degree tracking range of motion.
Developer Clenergy acquired the project in January. Swinerton Renewable Energy is building the facility on 500 acres of land adjacent to Asarco's Mission Mine complex. The site was chosen for its compliance with a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency program to build renewable energy projects on abandoned land, including old mining sites.
Tucson Electric Power has agreed to take the electricity from Avalon Solar under a 20-year power purchase agreement.
