Convert: New tracker design for reducing LCOE and LCA
Under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Project, GOPV, Convert is working on reducing the LCOE and LCA of large PV plants. In this vein, it has developed a new tracker and tracking strategy focused on the use of bifacial modules
This year Convert presented the Weathering Steel tracker (TRJ-WS) a single axis tracker made in Weathering Steel. The TRJ-WS is the result of the Research and Development Department of Convert, finalize to reduce the LCOE. The innovation of TRJ-WS respect to the current TRJ tracker stands in the protection against corrosion, obtained by using Weathering Steel (WS) instead of Hot Dip Galvanized Steel or other protective treatment.
