Exosun to supply solar trackers for four new PV projects in France

20 MW of solar trackers are central to rehabilitation of brownfields.

The four solar plants are an integral part of the rehabilitation of the brownfields: two will be installed on landfills; another one on an abandoned gravel pit; and the fourth one on a derelict industrial site. The sites are expected to produce a total of 28,300 MWh annually, enough electricity to power close to 10,000 homes.

The plants will be equipped with Exosun’s Exotrack HZ horizontal single-axis solar trackers, motorized structures that orient photovoltaic panels toward the sun throughout the day. In addition, Exosun developed a new adjustable foundation system in order to address soil settlement typical of landfills. This product adaptation preserves the integrity of waste containment, while guaranteeing optimum solar tracking.

Beyond the installation of the solar trackers, Exosun will be in charge of their commissioning planned for the summer of 2015.
