The right track

SKFC144 - Solar Linear Actuators
SKF Solutions has launched the SKF Solar Linear Actuator-CASD-60 and SKF Solar Hub CRSD 290 tracking systems for solar PV.

According to the company, the trackers increase the energy production from one 58 m2 solar panel by 5.8 MWh/year which equates to a reduction of 4.4 tonnes CO2/year.

Markus Behn, global business development manager for SKF Renewable Energy’s solar segment, said: “Harnessing renewable energy is one of the most effective solutions for reducing carbon dioxide. 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.”
