Sunfolding to Supply Trackers for 39MW Solar Project in California
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, NOVEMBER 29, 2018 – Sunfolding today announced that the company was selected to supply its Sunfolding T29™ tracker for a 39MW project in California. The project is part of a larger portfolio with one of the top US EPC providers and adds to the rapidly growing number of utility-scale projects in which the Sunfolding T29 is deployed.
“We are pleased to see that word is spreading quickly about our installation speed, which is at least two times faster than traditional trackers,” noted Sunfolding’s CEO, Jurgen Krehnke. “As time is literally money in this case, installation speed makes a huge difference for our customers’ financial calculations. With simplicity and durability hand in hand, Sunfolding’s next-to-zero maintenance requirements will continue to create value during the lifetime of the plant. It is this level of systemic advantages that really sets our technology apart and drives fast adoption.”
The Sunfolding T29 uses proven technology and production methods from the automotive industry, and has three components, where traditional trackers have 21 or more. The simplicity of the solar tracker’s design means that project developers can reduce construction timelines along with associated labor and install costs. The tracker’s fewer components translates to high reliability in the field.
Sunfolding designs and manufactures simpler solar trackers that fuel the future of smart solar and move our world forward. Sunfolding’s flagship product, the Sunfolding T29™, features seriously simplified components. The Sunfolding T29 makes solar power plants easy to install and smarter to operate, with motor-free tracker rows and 95% fewer maintenance locations.
