Tracker maker Array Technologies Inc. (ATI) and developer BayWa R.E. have finalized an agreement for the supply of tracker systems for more than 1 GW of PV projects in the United States and Mexico, according to a press release.
The projects will incorporate ATIs DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis trackers, which ATI says offer significant efficiencies in installation. Array says that this product and the collaboration seek to reduce the levelized cost of energy for PV projects with trackers.
The deal between the two companies was finalized during the Mirec conference in Mexico City in May. Mirec is one of the main conferences for the PV sector in Mexico this this year it highlighted opportunities under the energy reform recently implemented in the nation.
We are pleased with the collaboration with ATI, stated BayWa R.E. CEO Jam Attari. ATIs approach to supporting local communities is in line with BayWa R.E.s policies to utilize local resources for the realization of projects.
Our recent product innovations bring down the cost of installation and maintenance radically and increase reliability, making it the natural choice for BayWa R.E.s international pipeline, said ATI Founder and CEO Ron Corio.
Array Technologies emphasizes that this collaboration for supplying a large volume of trackers is occurring at a time when solar is rapidly becoming more competitive with fossil fuels.
