hawaii exosun trackers

Exosun, worldwide leading supplier of advanced, cost-effective solar tracking solutions for ground-mounted photovoltaic (PV) plants, has successfully commissioned its solar trackers on the 40 MWp EE Waianae Solar Project in Hawaii.

The Waianae solar plant, developed by Eurus Energy America, with project design and construction by REC Solar, situated in Waianae, West Oahu, is the largest PV plant in Hawaii.

It has been equipped with 264 Exotrack HZ single-axis trackers which orient 127,160 modules towards the sun throughout the day to significantly increase the plant’s energy yield and thereby contribute to providing cheaper, cleaner power to the Hawaiian population.

Installed in a coastal area with strong winds with unique meteorological characteristics and slopes up to 15%, this project is yet another showcase for Exosun to prove the robustness and adaptability of its solar tracking technology.

The Exotrack HZ’s balanced structure consisting of few and lightweight parts enabled swift installation, and will require minimal O&M. The solar plant will produce approximately 72,900 MWh of clean energy annually, enough electricity to power 11,900 homes.
