Challenging Terrain

Nexrtracker’s suite of all-terrain tracking solutions
As the number of flat, unencumbered utility-scale solar project sites dwindles, solar developers are looking for innovative agivoltaics solutions and tracker solutions that can handle hilly, uneven terrain and challenging geotechnical conditions while maximizing the ground cover ratio (GCR) and minimizing the inter-row shading of their plant layouts.
NX Horizon-XTR: The Key to Unlocking Challenging Project Sites

Nextracker’s terrain-following NX Horizon-XTR tracker reduces earthwork, lowers project and scheduling risk, simplifies construction on undulating, difficult ground conditions, and softens the environmental impacts.

Agrivoltaics – Combining solar farms with agricultural assets
There is also an increasing desire to take advantage of the many inherent advantages of combining solar farms with agricultural assets–a sector known as ‘agrivoltaics’ or ‘agri-PV”. Nextracker’s suite of solutions can handle a wide variety of terrain and site conditions. Learn More

Key Benefits of NX Horizon-XTR

  • The system breaks the long-time tradition of straight-line tracker rows, unlocking major savings on grading and foundation pile lengths.
  • NX Horizon-XTR allows developers and asset owners to decouple some of the earthworks that used to be mandatory and build the best structure for the existing land.
  • With several gigawatts of grade following trackers deployed, NX Horizon-XTR has already delivered huge savings in site grading and foundation costs

Mitigate losses
Make informed decisions on shade mitigation technologies with an accurate understanding of the shade loss and the ‘real’ baseline. While shade loss happens on sites with traditional backtracking, energy yield enhancement and control software like TrueCapture, paired with NX trackers, can mitigate those losses. Learn More
Determine Optimal Tracking Angles

With a TrueCapture–enhanced system, construction tolerances are considered by utilizing proprietary deployment methods that accurately determine the as-built height of each row. These as-built heights are then used as the primary input for deploying the TrueCapture row-to-row algorithm that determines optimal tracking angles.
