TotalEnergies chooses Nexans solar trackers to recycle a landfill site into a solar farm

The La Fenasse project is carried out in partnership with Omexom ENR SO, a subsidiary of the Vinci group, which is responsible for installing the trackers and the electrical package.

The KEYLIOS solar tracker was developed by Nexans Solar Technologies (NST) an internal start-up created in 2018 as part of Nexans' strategic plan to support the transition to renewable energies. Thanks to its disruptive design, the solar tracker only needs two foundations for a typical 36 kilowatt (kW) array. In contrast, a conventional design would need three to five times more.

Yann Duclot, CEO of Nexans Solar Technologies, said: "Nexans Solar Technologies Keylios solar tracker design unlocks the potential of new fields. We want to support the industry in opening the potential of new lands which were not feasible or permissible in the past; landfills, slag land, former industrial sites, unstable grounds, and with slopes up to 15%".
