STI-H1250™ horizontal single-axis solar tracker
The STI-H1250™ solar tracker consists of a series of torsion beams oriented in a North-South direction on which the photovoltaic modules are supported. They follow the path of the sun thanks to a single automatic energy-efficient drive system.
The tracker control system is programmed with an astronomical calculation algorithm of the sun's path. It includes backtracking mode to avoid shadowing between rows that improves production by up to 5%, as well as the stow positioning to protect the tracker in extreme wind conditions.
STI-H1250™ is a multi-row solar tracker with a rotation range of ±55 degrees, free of buckling effects that makes possible to minimize the number of drives. The reliability of the plant is increased by reducing critical points, scoring, wiring, auxiliary equipment, O&M costs, and power consumption.
Highly reliable upper rotary drive, with STI Norland's in-house patented system
Minimum power consumption and number of drives per MW
More than 10 years in operation and proven success
Control and Communications System
The STI-H1250™ centralized solar tracker includes a in-house control and communications system.
- High reliability and maximum availability of operation.
- Easy to replace components.
- Less O&M tasks, saving time and costs.
- Simple integration with the PV plant’s SCADA, allowing fast configuration of tracker status alarms.
- Stow positioning fully configurable to protect the structure and the solar modules in extreme wind conditions.
- PLC with integrated web server: access to alarm log and tracker positioning to ease O&M tasks.
Instalation and maintenance
Thanks to the simplicity of its structure and its modular design, installation time is shortened. In addition, the learning curve for its assembly is very fast, enabling the quick training of installers and eliminating downtime.
- 100% screwed or bolted joints. No need for welding, cutting or drilling on site.
- Great adaptability to terrain and adjustment. High tolerances for foundation positioning error, both on the three axes (X, Y, Z) and rotation on the Y and Z axes.
- Assembly tools provided for an installation free of continuous metric verifications.
What’s more, the wide variety of foundations to which it adapts makes the STI-H1250™ tracker installable on virtually all types of terrain, minimizing and even eliminating the need for earth moving.
Installation types available
Direct pile driving
Indicated for cohesive soils of medium-firm consistency and granular soils of medium to dense consistency.
Pile driving with pre-drilling
Indicated when direct pile driving is not possible due to the presence of localized rocky areas.
Indicated for soils with poor geomechanical properties, high aggressiveness or presence of rock.
Indicated for soils with a high content of vegetation and also for mixed soils with deep layers of rock and granular strata on the surface.
Indicated for landfill areas.
