COMPANY PROFILE Scorpius Trackers Tracking the Sun. From Dawn to Dusk Competitive bidding in State and Central government programs has created an environment for developers to examine technology solutions for superior generation to boost returns, in comparison to other solar developers. This is where solar tracking can come in help. Solar tracking is the only proven and bankable technology which increases the power generation of a plant by 18-24% (location and technology dependent), thereby lowering the cost of ‘per unit’ of power generation. This increase in delta translates to a direct profit in a fixed PPA regime. Globally, 85% of solar systems use trackers to enhance generation and Indian developers would substantially benefit through use of our solar tracker system. For example; a 1MW plant, use of trackers could increase power generation from 15 lac units to 18 lacs units. So, for a signed PPA of Rs. 6.49, each MWP will give you additional revenues of 20 lacs p.a. per MWP, or a payback of only 3.5 years in a 25 year plant. Why tracking from Scorpius? All existing trackers use bearings or bushes, for rotating the modules. These components wear over time and require replacement. Expected solar power plant life is >25 years and so all bearings will need to be replaced at least once if not twice. While in operation, bearings require maintenance by way of cleaning and lubrication. O&M is a labour intensive activity for a >1MW field spread across 5 acres and especially expensive in Western markets. Scorpius has a global patent pending Frictionless Pivot for solar tracking. This is a product in which tracking movement from East to West is achieved by bending Solar Project in the state of Telangana, India using Scorpius Solar Trackers. of materials. This is a 100% frictionless movement and exhibits no wear and tear. There is also no resistance due to friction. The construction is designed for zero maintenance and zero lubrication for the life of the plant. Advantages of Scorpius solar trackers • NO mechanical Maintenance / lubrication required for LIFE • LEAST power consumption for tracking : < 0.02% (300 kWh per MW per annum estimated) • NO Welding during installation, only bolts • ONE module is sufficient to power up a 200kW tracker block • BALANCED structures singe manual tracking of 100kw • INTEGRATED BATTERY in controller is sufficient for tracker movement for 5 days • TURN ON and START mode: NO user configuration necessary Globally, 85% of solar systems use trackers to enhance generation and Indian developers would substantially benefit through use of our solar tracker system 16 energética INDIA · NOV | DEC15
