Australia is a key sales region for the company, with more than 400 MW of trackers deployed across the country. The most notable installation is the 349MW Limondale Solar Farm in New South Wales, which is one of the largest solar parks in Australia, covering around 900 hectares.
“I’m delighted to welcome Linda to our growing team to run the Australian subsidiary,” said John Susa, Chief Sales Officer. “She has immense experience in the Australian photovoltaic market and has an in-depth understanding of the challenges the Australian landscape and climate present. She is ideally placed to help our customers overcome these challenges.”
Prior to joining Ideematec, Koschier was Head of Corporate Partnerships for EnergyLab, while also consulting across the commercial and industrial energy industry. Other industry roles have included Head of Partnerships for Origin Energy, Utility Sales Business Development for Trina Solar, and Managing Director for Roth & Rau Australia, a German solar equipment manufacturer.
Koschier is also currently a director of the Australian Photovoltaic Institute, sits on the board of advisors of Tractile Pty Ltd and is the member for Australia on the International Energy Agency Photovoltaic Power Systems Task 1 committee.
She holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from The University of New South Wales’, an MBA from the Australian Graduate School of Management, and is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Ideematec trackers are perfectly suited to utility-scale PV projects in Australia because they are uniquely designed to adapt to uneven terrain, reducing the need for additional groundwork. They also can withstand the most severe weather conditions. Permanently locked tube technology ensures system stability, and a zero degree stow angle defends against extreme wind events. These innovations are proven to reduce downtime, increasing the profitability of the overall system.
Ideematec provides proven tracker innovation and customer-centric solutions that offer the best lifetime value – in all environments. Established in 2003 and headquartered in Germany, Ideematec has industry experience in 25 countries across six continents. Experiencing rapid expansion, the company has shipped over 3GW of trackers worldwide and has seen a year-on-year market share increase of 62%.
Ideematec has a weekly production capacity of 65MW, with its flexible tracker design offering easy installation, reliable operation, and high yields – ideally suited to the utility-scale sector. Ideematec pioneered the 2P high-span safeTrack Horizon™ H4 tracker, powered by patented decoupled drive technology. It’s successor, the L:Tec Horizon™ tracker builds on this industry-leading innovation with patented tube technology that stabilizes the system by locking the trackers into place at each position.
Since 2017, the company has successfully supplied some of the largest solar farms in the world, including Australia (349 MW), Jordan (250 MW) and Spain (200 MW), and has delivered trackers for the largest 2P solar project in Qatar (800MW).
