TrinaTracker Powers Brazil’s Largest Solar Plant with Innovative Technology

By Editor


TrinaTracker, a division of Trina Solar, announced its role in the 520MW Santa Luzia Complex, heralded as one of Brazil’s largest solar installations. The sprawling plant, currently in the commissioning phase, is equipped entirely with Vanguard 1P trackers, featuring the SuperTrack Smart Tracking Algorithm.

Last year, TrinaTracker commenced supplying components for Rio Alto Group’s Santa Luzia Complex, which spans over 1,700 hectares and comprises nine segments. It is poised to provide clean energy to approximately 123,000 local households, curbing CO2 emissions by an estimated 380,000 tons annually.

The construction of the complex generated nearly 1,000 local jobs.

The Vanguard 1P tracker was chosen for its exceptional energy yield, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. TrinaTracker has already secured orders exceeding 1GW for the Vanguard 1P from various clients across Brazil.

The integration of the SuperTrack system, featuring the Smart Backtracking Algorithm and Mini-Shading Model technology, further enhances the plant’s efficiency. This innovative approach enables real-time parameter optimization based on 3D topographic data, resulting in a minimum 3 percent increase in energy yield compared to traditional systems.

Marcus Fabrino, head of TrinaTracker Latin America, expressed gratitude to the Rio Alto Group for their trust and collaboration on one of Brazil’s largest photovoltaic projects. He emphasized how this project aligns with Brazil’s commitment to clean energy and sustainable development.

Alvaro Garcia-Maltras, President of Trina Solar Latin America, lauded the Santa Luzia plant as a beacon of progress in renewable energy.

He highlighted its role in addressing the climate crisis, fostering economic growth, and creating local job opportunities. Garcia-Maltras underscored the importance of trust and partnership between Trina Solar and the Rio Alto Group, illustrating how photovoltaic solutions drive us towards a greener future.
