SunLink completes 37 MW tracker delivery to Honduras


Solar energy solutions provider SunLink has completed the delivery of 37 MW of fixed-tilt, roof-mount trackers to a solar PV project in Western Honduras, Central America.

Honduras’ solar market is the second-largest in Latin America in 2015, while for SunLink its involvement in the project augments the company’s own footprint in the area, building upon previous PV installations in Puerto Rico and expanding its total install figure in the Americas to beyond 1 GW.

According to GTM Research, Latin America boasts a solar pipeline of 30 GW, which is greater than that of the U.S. and Japan. Blessed with high levels of solar irradiation but often challenging terrain, the region is the perfect fit for tracker technology, SunLink claims.

"Our extensive R&D and state-of-the-art engineering means our products surpass expectations in extreme environmental conditions, and our international supply chain accommodates the tightest of logistical timeline requirements on a global scale," said SunLink CEO Michael Maulick.

The solar PV pipeline for Honduras in 2015 is more than 500 MW, says GTM Research, making it one of the more dynamic markets in the region, even though the analysts have warned that the country remains rather high-risk for investors due to political uncertainty posing challenges to the long-term viability of the market.
