MECASOLAR will present in May two new products, developed, designed and manufactured by the company. Their new Fixed Structures, designed for ground-mounted facilities in large solar photovoltaic plants, and their new seasonal Azimuth single-axis trackers. Both products will be launched as innovations at the SOLAREXPO fair to be held in Verona (Italy) from May 7 to 9; and the INTERSOLAR fair that will take place in the German city of Munich between May 27 and 29.
With this expansion to its product range MECASOLAR responds to all the needs of the market for ground-mounted photovoltaic installations: from dual-axis solar trackers – which they have been manufacturing since 2004 – to fixed structures and single-axis solar trackers; which are currently being launched.
The three product ranges will be manufactured and assembled by its production plants in Spain (Navarra and Badajoz) and Greece (Thessaloniki), as well as the production plants that are to come on line in Italy and The United States in late 2009.
According to the company, with the new products, MECASOLAR expects to reach a production capacity of 200 MW / year for fixed structures and trackers (single and dual-axes) in 2010. The launch of these two new products will further strengthen its leadership in the global photovoltaic market for dual-axis trackers, with more than 140 MW produced per year in 2008 and 180MW accumulated to date.
The distribution of both the Fixed Structure and the Seasonal Azimuth single-axis will be exclusively conducted by PROINSA, the engineering and distribution company in the OPDE Group, who were already distributing the MECASOLAR double-axis.
