Pit 3 North
VCT Group worked with a local land owner to secure a location to host a FIT 3.0 ground mounted contract to be hosted in an old retired gravel pit northwest of Sudbury. We worked with them and installed 26 dual-axis Sonnen Systems tracking systems. A brand new HV line running down a steep embankment and transformer were installed along with a dedicated custom E-house housing all the required switchgear and communications systems.

Yes, that’s a full sized minivan beneath the tracker!

From the bottom of the panels to the top of the panels, this tracker is 10 metres tall, the height of an olympic diving board.
