Exosun SAS (Martillac, France) has agreed to supply Neoen (Paris) with single-axis trackers for three solar photovoltaic (PV) plants totaling 25 MW in the South West of France.

Exosun will supply 163 of its Exotrack HZ tracking systems for the plants, as well as managing the commissioning process. Construction on the plants began in December 2013, with plant commissioning scheduled for August 2014.

“We are committed to building highly robust and efficient systems with our partners,” comments Exosun President and Founder Frédéric Conchy. “Our Exotrack HZ solar trackers optimize the output of utilityscale groundmount solar plants like the three new projects developed by our client and new partner, Neoen.”

“We expect these projects, supported by two other leading French companies, will be the first of many in France and abroad in a long-term, collaborative relationship.”

 

Schneider Electric to supply power conversion technology

Neoen has chosen Bouygues Energies & Services (Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France) to manage the plants' design, deployment and operation. Schneider Electric SA (Reuil-Malmaison, France) will supply the inverters, transformer substations and monitoring and control systems, as well as managing grid connection and supplying long-term maintenance.

The three plants are 6.72–10.1 MW in capacity, and are expected to produce 33.2 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of electricity annually.
