Albuquerque, NM – 3/11/13 – Array Technologies has completed the final shipment of a 52 MWdc (35 MWac) DuraTrack™ HZ system for a solar installation in Fortuna Foothills, AZ.

The DuraTrack™ HZ system is the global leader in solar trackers, with over 1 GW shipped and more MWs installed worldwide than any other tracker on the market today.
