Soltec debuts in Mexico supplying 238 MW of solar trackers


Soltec, a leading manufacturer and supplier of single-axis solar trackers, will supply and install 8,256 units of its equipment for a 238 MW PV plant in Mexico. It is the company’s first large-scale PV plant in this Latin American country, a region where SF Utility trackers are leading the solar market.

“This project presented a challenge in data communication due to its great distances, both for centralizing plant operating parameters and for nearby-tracker maintenance tasks,” reported Soltec CEO Raúl Morales. “Our solar trackers responded with wireless communications from tracker-level NFC to SCADA.”

This project adds up to other plants currently under construction and it is one of the reasons that made Soltec rank first place among European renewable energy firms in the Financial Times highest-growth companies list.

“Our staggering revenue growth rate is evidently accompanied by global staff growth,” ensured Fernando Sánchez, VP of Sales LATAM for Soltec. “Thanks to this project, the number of people hired in the region will reach 350 counting both direct and indirect jobs. This is due to Soltec’s investment in regional operations to assure on-time equipment supply and service for each customer project.”
