OPEL International Inc. plans to start manufacturing two of its utility-scale solar trackers in the U.S. The trackers were developed in conjunction with OPEL's tracker partner, Spain-based FeiNA.
The first single-axis tracker, the SF-70 H1, is designed for ground-mounted, utility-scale applications and is capable of delivering more than 10,000 watts of power when equipped with conventional silicon flat-plate panels, the company says. The second single-axis tracker, the SF-40 H1, is designed for both ground-mount and rooftop applications, and it is capable of delivering more than 6,000 watts of power when equipped with conventional silicon flat panels.
Local production will result in reduced delivery times to the end markets, as well as more attractive pricing, according to Robert Pico, CEO of OPEL International Inc.
