Solvest – Yukon Install
Our next-generation NOMAD solar tracker is the first of its kind – it rotates to follow the sun from sunrise to sunset and is prefabricated and movable. NOMAD solar trackers are purpose-built for challenging locations, where installation costs are high or where project lives are short. NOMAD systems can be rapidly installed in scalable 15 kW units, moved to new site after installation, and are suitable for both small and large-scale projects.
Single-axis solar trackers are the preferred technology of major solar companies globally due to their increased energy yield. However, trackers have not been successfully deployed in Northern Canada until our team of industry-leaders developed the NOMAD system.
“The successful implementation of our NOMAD system in the Canadian North is an important step in driving down solar installation costs in remote areas, while at the same time increasing energy yield. The combination of these two factors will significantly lower the total cost of renewable energy in remote regions,” said Tom Miller, CEO of Cambridge Energy.
“The NOMAD was significantly faster to install than other solar systems” said Ben Power, co-founder of Solvest Inc. “It is the only single-axis tracker we would consider suitable for Northern Canada, where ground conditions are unsuitable for traditional solar trackers. The NOMAD survived a harsh winter, where temperatures dipped below -40°C for multiple weeks and is on-track to generate up to 17% more energy per year than a standard fixed-tilt solar array.”
Newmont Akyem Case Study
Newmont Mining Corporation, one of the world’s largest gold producers and sustainability leaders, has deployed Cambridge Energy’s redeployable NOMAD solar PV tracker to demonstrate lower-cost renewable electricity and to offset energy demand at its Akyem operation in Ghana.
Solvest – Yukon Install
We’re proud to announce the successful installation and testing of our novel NOMAD solar PV tracker in Whitehorse, Canada. The single-axis tracker was installed by Solvest Inc. – the largest installer of solar energy across the Canadian north.
Scatec Solar – Cooperation Agreement
We’re excited to announce the signing of a cooperation agreement with Scatec Solar (OSE:SSO), a large Norwegian independent power producer. Under the agreement, Scatec Solar will use our movable solar tracker to offer short-term off-take agreements to commercial and industrial customers worldwide.
