Achieving Aeroelastic Excellence: The Success of Ideematec's L:TEC® 1P Wind Tunnel Test

26. April 2023

Our team recently participated in the L:TEC® 1P aeroelastic wind tunnel test at CPP in Sydney, Australia. This testing is critical to ensure the stability of our solar trackers in high wind conditions, and we're proud to say that our patented locking technology proved to be a huge success once again.

CPP Wind Engineering Consultants, a leading provider of aeroelastic wind tunnel tests for solar trackers, played a pivotal role in our recent achievement. By granting us access to their cutting-edge wind tunnel testing facilities in Sydney, they enabled us to optimize the aerodynamic stability of our L:TEC® 1P solar tracker to cater to the specific needs of each project. This optimization was made possible through the implementation of our patented locking technology.

The aeroelastic wind tunnel test performed on the L:TEC® 1P served as a resounding validation of the effectiveness of our patented locking technology. Through the utilization of multiple locking points and one-string tables to reduce span lengths, we were able to achieve impressive critical wind speeds in the test results. This success stands as a testament to the dedication and expertise of our engineering team. We take great pride in the exceptional performance exhibited by the L:TEC® 1P during the test.

At Ideematec, we are driven by a deep sense of pride in our work. We are immensely grateful to have a team of talented engineers and partners who share our unwavering commitment to excellence. With their exceptional capabilities and our state-of-the-art solar trackers, we are confident that our products will continue to deliver outstanding results for our customers, even in the most demanding and challenging conditions.
