Next generation tech suite

Solar solutions provider, Nextracker’s suite of next-generation innovations builds upon technology that has been delivered to utility scale solar power plants for three or more years. The product suite combines hardware, smart software, and process innovations to deliver value to owners and EPCs. Hail Pro leverages the inherent features of Nextracker’s flagship NX Horizon smart solar tracking system, including its balanced design, integrated UPS, and independent row architecture. The new Hail Pro solution adds automatic stowing using weather service information, hail readiness services, and where desired, Hail Pro-75 for stowing at up to 75° for locations subject to extreme hail. Nextracker’s latest innovation for hilly sites doubles the capability of the popular NX Horizon XTRTM terrain following tracke. NX Horizon XTR-1.5 significantly reduces and even eliminates earthwork on extreme terrain sites, without complex joints or additional components. XTR can save many tons of steel with shorter piles and thousands of cubic yards of cut and fill; with the benefits of accelerating construction schedules, minimizing environmental impact, and reducing project risk. Minimizing disturbance also prevents long-term soil erosion and preserves habitats. Nextracker has expanded TrueCapture’s yield optimization and control software with Zonal Diffuse, a tracking function which enhances energy generation during rapidly changing irradiance conditions. This technology includes additional high spatial resolution sensing and control algorithms, adjusting trackers to variations in cloud cover across the entire power plant. Plants equipped with Zonal Diffuse can chase clouds for additional gains, without compromising tracking performance during clear sky conditions. Zonal Diffuse complements TrueCapture’s terrain-adaptive Row-to-Row tracking mode and Split Boost, a tracking optimization algorithm for half-cell modules.
