In Uganda Tryba Energy is currently building the first large scale African PV project to use solar tracking technology. This allows the solar panels to remain directly oriented towards the sun during the course of the day thanks to a motorised support structure , thereby increasing the level of electricity produced.
The site of the project, near Jinja in Uganda, is particularly well suited to the use of a tracking system.This is because the closer you are to the equator, the greater the efficiency and the production enhancements obtained. In this instance annual production achieved in KWh is 22% greater than for a traditional fixed structure. This is equivalent to some 19500 MWh which corresponds to the requirements of 20000 Ugandan households.The project will commence production in early 2019.
Tryba Energy is particularly proud of this achievement which combines market leadership and innovation while representing another concrete step in the implementation of our strategy for the renewable energy market.
