ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Sept. 11, 2017 – PRLog — Array Technologies (http://arraytechinc.com/)
The analysis found that Array’s architecture has higher structural integrity. With a patented mechanical load-release system, Array’s trackers are less susceptible to torsional galloping and consequential damage to solar modules. The DuraTrack HZ v3 withstands high wind loads in all positions, unlike architectures that rely on active stow and a complicated chain of electronic, radio, and motor systems to survive.
TÜV analysts performed an economic and risk analysis of two tracker architectures:
“Reliability is the cornerstone of responsible solar industry growth,” said Array Technologies CEO and founder, Ron Corio. “Without dependable PV modules and tracking systems, the solar industry will struggle to continue down its path of innovation and expansion. This third-party validation from TÜV confirms what we have been claiming for nearly 30 years: that the engineered simplicity in our trackers truly is the best long-term option for solar project owners.”
The DuraTrack HZ v3 is currently available to solar project developers. For more information about the tracker or the results of the TÜV study, please visit: http://www.arraytechinc.com/
