MONOLINE 3H
90 panels per row

For hilly terrains

Monoline 3H is PVH’s single-row tracker 60 meters long that holds three rows of modules placed horizontally. It is used in steep terrain where the intention is to minimize the movement of land and civil works. It is also used when the contour of the plot is irregular and therefore makes much better use of the available area.

3H has its own cleaning robot specially designed for it. Learn more!

MONOLINE 2V
60 panels per row

For bifacial

Used primarily with a bifacial module. For the rest of modules, it is recommended when there are irregular contours in the plots to take better advantage of the available space. This means it has a better occupation coefficient.

MONOLINE BIFACIAL 2V-60B

PVH’s newest single-axis solution for bifacial

The best companion for bifacial modules that will soon become the dominant design.

Maximize the bifacial gain

Monoline 2V-60 Bifacial is the perfect match to maximize the gain of bifacial modules, which are becoming mainstream, bringing higher yields and lower levelized cost of electricity (LCOE).

Closer to the sun

Large height to width aspect ratio maximizes rear side irradiance, reducing the shade intensity and mismatch loses.

Improve your production

Depending on albedo and other factors, the combination of PVH’s Monoline 2V single-axis tracker and bifacial modules increases yield, ranging from 10 to 15 percent, making this technology a major step forward to PV technology accelerating market growth.

Wind tunnel test performed

We have carried out extensive wind tunnel tests to identify the loads that impact on the structure, considering the height of the tracker and the longitudinal grooves. These tests include the damping factors of the structure, around 15 percent and identify the most favorable rest positions in case of high wind speeds to avoid the flutter phenomenon.

More light to be captured

  • The rear-side of the panel also benefits from sunlight reflected on the ground.
  • Best companion for bifacial modules: the Monoline 2V-60B, a single-axis tracker that supports 60 panels per row.

The design of PVH’s market-tested tracker has been forged during years of experience in the global utility-scale PV market and incorporates over 6 years of lessons learned, earned from the perspectives of multiple stakeholders of PV projects worldwide. The result is an investment-grade solar tracker that addresses the multiple needs of the owner and EPC alike, driving down the LCOE of PV energy.

Monoline single axis solar tracker for bifacial panels

Design approach

Especially suited for hilly terrain and irregularly shaped plots, as well as those with obstacles.

Only has five piles per tracker, which provides the EPC with a quicker and less expensive installation.

Direct module attachment to rigid steel panel rails eliminate vibratory/thermal expansion and over-torquing risks associated with aluminum sandwich clamps.

Robust structure

25-year design life.

Easy to operate.

Integrates with most SCADAs for remote control.

Panel rails are made of HDG steel or Magnelis and are apt for direct module attachment and grounding.

Securely attached to the torque tube, which has splices made with easy-to-install bolt-on clamps avoiding welding on field or other time-consuming tasks.
