The company Megacell has built a 1.5 MW power plant in Curicó, Chile, in 2015. The plant uses Convert TRJ trackers, which have been redesigned for specific use of bifacial modules produced by Megacell itself . This plant is one of the only power plants in the world with tracking system using bifacial modules.
Under the same conditions, bifacial modules produce more energy than conventional modules. This is due to the fact that besides using direct and diffused radiation, also the ground-reflected radiation (albedo) can be absorbed by the back face of the module. The combination of bifacial modules with the solar tracking system allows to maximize the energy production.
The Convert Tracker has a design capable to adapt to this new type of installation, allowing unutilised sunlight and reflected radiation to be captured by the module.
