NEXTracker to supply 1,000MW solar trackers to Blattner Energy

NexTracker has signed an agreement to supply over 1,000MW solar trackers to power generation contractor Blattner Energy.

Over the next two years, the company will install its single axis solar trackers at various projects across North America.

The NEXTracker is designed to help reduce layout constraints, number of foundations and use of steel, wear and tear on drive components, and simplify requirements of wiring. It eliminates the use of grounding materials.

NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar said: “Deploying NEXTracker generates more energy and reduces installation time with a repeatable, self-powered system design that is flexible to varying site conditions.

“Those features, combined with lower operational costs, maximize financial returns to our project stakeholders.”

Blattner provides engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for wind, solar, high voltage transmission and substation projects.
