The Beryl Solar Farm, which completed construction in June 2019, is located in New South Wales, Australia. For this project involving 260,000 solar panels, ArcelorMittal Projects Exosun has supplied their innovative solar tracking technology as well as a full range of services including plant design support, logistics, training and on-site management support.
The 110 MWp solar plant, built by Downer, leading Australian EPC1, is equipped with 531 trackers and 8,607 Exotrack® HZ V2 structures produced by ArcelorMittal Projects Exosun with about 30% of the components manufactured by Alliance Metal Changzhou, part of ArcelorMittal Projects.
Thanks to its balanced design and structural stiffness, our Exotrack® HZ V2 offers greater reliability and limited operating expense. It is a centralised tracker with only 4 motors per MWp, with high flexibility on uneven ground and unrivalled simplicity resulting in a smooth and fast installation.

ArcelorMittal Projects Exosun’s LCOE²-friendly tracking technology significantly increases the plant’s energy yield and thereby contributes to providing clean and safe electricity to the Australian households and public transportation. This project will bring significant economic and environmental benefits to the New South Wales region:
Commissioning took place in May 2019, just 12 months after the contract was signed and the farm was completed in June 2019. "With the Beryl Solar Farm, ArcelorMittal is consolidating its position in a growing Australian solar market" concludes Antoine Gastineau, Sales & Marketing Director at ArcelorMittal ProjectsExosun.
