Single-axis solar tracker manufacturer Sunfolding has launched upgrades to the Sunfolding T29 Single-Axis Tracker, making it easier to transport material to the project site and through the field.
The upgraded Sunfolding T29 uses the same materials and manufacturing processes that enable Sunfolding, with just three components, to achieve significantly faster installation times and lower operational costs than competing trackers, which have a much higher part count, the company said in a press release. The upgraded Sunfolding T29 features a stronger and lighter actuator that relies on half the actuator bolts, weighs 20% less and requires 15% fewer posts per megawatt compared to its predecessor.
“With the Sunfolding T29 upgrades, we are further strengthening the characteristics for which our customers already select Sunfolding,” said Jurgen Krehnke, CEO of Sunfolding. “Solar trackers should be installer-friendly and reliable. We design our products for ease of installation and decades of life in the field. The Sunfolding T29 upgrades represent the evolution of a platform designed with simplicity in mind.”
Sunfolding trackers, with their low part count and streamlined design, don’t require installation teams to spend time on extensive training or handle expensive custom tools. The upgraded design brings the same sensibilities to improving project site logistics, benefiting installers with reduced costs and timelines from project start to finish.
The upgraded Sunfolding T29 is in full production and available for utility-scale solar projects. For more information about the Sunfolding T29, please visit the Sunfolding website or find us at Solar Power International in booth 3533.
