The world’s largest rooftop dual-axis solar power station is currently under construction on a food facility in Pingtung County of Taiwan. This is an 840-kW project which utilizes BIG SUN iPV solar trackers (dual-axis) to maximize energy output and be able to resist extreme weather conditions such as typhoons in Taiwan.
Topper Sun, a subsidiary of BIG SUN Group, serves as the EPC of this project for Chailease Finance Co. (CFC). By the end of year 2015, this site will be installed completely.
“Solar trackers are one of the fastest-growing PV applications, IHS forecasts tracker application to grow to an impressive 20% of the market in 2015,” said Summer Luo, Chairman of BIG SUN. “BIG SUN iPV solar tracker features a unique cable-driven mechanism which is simple to be maintained and will help to lower the capital and O&M costs of this kind of dual-axis PV sites. Besides local installations, iPV solar trackers have been delivered for projects in many countries such as China, Japan, and Luxemburg. We look forward to seeing that iPV solar trackers will be widely used all over the world in the near feature.”
