Array Technologies partners with Nucor for steel production of solar tracker components

Nucor has entered an agreement with Array Technologies to produce certain components of its solar tracking system, as well as support the co-development of future components for Array’s next generation of products.

“As the largest recycler of steel in the U.S., Nucor is an ideal partner for Array. Nucor’s longstanding commitment to recycling as well as their efforts to source a portion of the power they use in their production process from renewable generation is consistent with Array’s corporate mission and values. As Array invests in innovation and develops technologies that will decrease installation time and bring down levelized cost of energy for our customers, we are proud to say that our products will be made with sustainably sourced materials,” said Jim Fusaro, Chief Executive Officer of Array Technologies.

Under the agreement, Nucor will supply Array with torque tubes and rolled steel for Array’s production of clamps, foundations and brackets and other components.

Nucor processes approximately 20 million tons of scrap metal annually to produce new steel that is 100% recyclable at the end of its useful life. The company is also making the steel production process cleaner by investing in solar and other renewable energy sources.

“We are honored to partner with the leading tracker company in the U.S., and we are excited about the role we can play supplying the sustainable steel needed for the energy transition,” said Dave Sumoski, Chief Operating Officer of Nucor Corporation. “Both Nucor and Array recognize that the transition to a clean energy future begins at home, and we’re honored to be both a supplier and a customer for the U.S. solar energy industry.”
