Design Engineering

Overview

Ideally, you have all the required documentation in front of you when you meet our NEXTracker design engineering team: geotech report, hydrology study, topography surface analysis. But don’t worry if something is missing. We have a great knowledge base that allows us to quickly assess if your site meets our NEXTracker requirements. In fact, our innovative trackers are so flexible that we are able to build almost anywhere with minimal grading. While linked row systems need to pay attention to both, north-south and east-west slopes, we don’t have to abide by any east-west slope tolerances at all. In north-south direction, NEXTracker’s unique design adjusts the assemblies and racking systems for a 6.1% grade. Imagine the possibilities.

Finding the Best Solution

Wide Variety of Options

Closely matching conditions at your site, our NEXTracker design engineers will offer the best solution for you. We have different pier options, working for many soil conditions, even on shifting grounds. We thoroughly adjust for temperatures, wind speeds, snow loads, module type, and tracker length. None of the NEXTracker row have to be within the same plane with each other, which helps tremendously since building sites often have many different undulations. We reduce the cut and fill of soil to a minimum. It’s good for the environment and saves you time and money. Having a flood zone within your site? No problem, we can adjust for that too. And thanks to our relationship with Flextronics, we have access to a wide variety of galvanization coating options for any given microclimate on the globe, making sure the steel we use lasts for the lifetime of the system without breaking your budget.

Let our Design Engineers work for you.

Expertise second to none.
