The STI-H250 can also be adapt well to complex terrains and irregular layouts.

STI Norland have launched the new generation of their STI-H250. It was originally developed in 2017 and has since been supplied and installed in more than 30 PV plants, adding up to more than 850 MW.

The STI-H250 consists of two torsion beams positioned in a North-South direction on which the PV modules are mounted. The two beams are linked and rotate simultaneously following the path of the sun in the sky. They are moved by just one motor, cutting supply and maintenance costs. In addition, the new STI-H250 considerably increases the adaptability to complex terrains and irregular layouts.

With headquarters in Spain, the company fully owns subsidiaries in Brazil, Chile, India, Israel, Mexico, South Africa, and the United States serving the European, American, Middle Eastern, and African markets. (mfo)
