New Mexico-based Array Technologies Inc. (ATI) has unveiled the latest version of its single-axis tracking system: the DuraTrack HZ v3.
The DuraTrack HZ v3 features a single-bolt per module mounting bracket that the company says reduces module installation time. The new design supports more modules per row with fewer columns. The units possess automatic row alignment functions as well as snow or sand dune obstruction protection on an automatic and individual row basis. The new version also incorporates a passive wind load mitigation system.
ATI recently commissioned the first 1.2 MW DuraTrack HZ v3 site in northern New Mexico. High-volume shipments on the new version product will begin in July. The DuraTrack HZ v2.5, ATI's current version system, will remain in production for select applications.
‘We minimized loads, wasted space, fasteners, number of motors, controls, columns, as well as maintenance cost and risk, while maximizing power production, reliability and investor returns,’ saysÂ Ron Corio, ATI's CEO.
