Keeping track

The Solar Linear Actuator CASD-60

According to SKF, the SKF Solar Linear Actuator-CASD-60, a BeyondZero Portfolio product, contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions by increasing the energy production from one solar panel by 5.8 MWh/year.

This would equate to a reduction per application of 4.4 tonnes CO2/year (according to world power grid mix CO2 factor of 0.749 kg CO2/kWh).

It adds that, on average, a 15 percent increase in power generation can be anticipated in comparison to rigid PV solar panel systems.

“Harnessing renewable energy is one of the most effective solutions for reducing carbon dioxide,” said Mahdi Sebti, global segment manager, SKF Renewable Energy, Solar.

“SKF’s advanced electromechanical technology offers improvements over today’s maintenance-intensive solutions and delivers high performance, accuracy and efficiency by accurately tracking the sun’s position throughout the day and throughout the seasons.”

Figures are valid for 58 m2 panels fitted with an SKF Solar Linear Actuator, CASD-60.
