NX Horizon-XTR: Terrain following solar tracker unlocks deployment now on even more challenging sites

With the continued success of solar power, sites for new utility-scale developments become more challenging. Hilly terrain used to make projects risky and costly, two challenges NX Horizon-XTR with its terrain-following capability, successfully took on. Built on the proven technology of our independent row tracker NX Horizon, XTR has already been deployed on more than 9 GW on multiple continents. Starting in 2023, XTR-1.5 even doubles Horizon’s capabilities, enabling you to tackle more challenging terrain than ever before.

NX Horizon-XTR can drastically reduce time-consuming and costly site grading, sometimes even eliminating it altogether. When less earth needs to be moved and shorter piles will suffice, projects get de-risked, and the steel savings are significant. Preserving the topsoil also means preserving habitats with all the benefits that come with it. The risk of erosion goes down and by honoring the environment, projects gain community acceptance and their likelihood of being approved increases.

NX Horizon-XTR achieves all of this by tapping into its proven core architecture that is used in 90 GW of solar power globally. No complex joints or any other technology risks like complex drive mechanisms or potential loss of tracker row torsional stiffness must be taken on. 

NX Horizon-XTR has been contracted across 9 GW+ of cumulative projects, with many projects under construction or in late-stage development in the U.S. and elsewhere. Learn more about what NX Horizon-XTR and XTR-1.5 can do for you by downloading our datasheet.
