NEXTracker, the Fremont, California-based supplier of tracker technology, has this week completed an 82 MW commission for solar power development company SunEdison in the Central American nation of Honduras.

SunEdison has developed and built two large-scale solar parks in the country – the Choluteca and Pacifico power plants – and opted for tracker technology to maximize the exceptional solar insolation conditions local to the region.

NEXTracker has supplied its single axis PV trackers to both projects, helping to bolster Honduras’ rapidly growing solar industry.

"It is inspiring to see Honduras emerge as one of the largest solar markets in Latin America," said NEXTracker CEO Dan Shugar. "We’re extremely proud to be providing our transformational trackers to SunEdison, especially for the completion of these milestone projects – two of the largest solar installations in Honduras."
