Altair Units licensing system will provide access to full suite of Altair solutions.

Altair reports that Soltec, a global solar equipment manufacturer based in Murcia, Spain, will be using Altair technology within its research and development (R&D) division. 

“Altair’s commitment to sustainability is core to who we are and what projects we undertake. Expanding our presence and expertise in the sustainability sector is one of our top priorities, and we are thrilled to work with Soltec to further embody our vision,” says James R. Scapa, founder and chief executive officer, Altair. “Renewable energy is going to be a foundational aspect of tomorrow’s world—we’re proud to have a hand in bringing about better, more efficient renewable energy technology.”

Soltec Innovations will be implementing the full Altair technology suite to deliver greater flexibility and power to its engineering team compared to previous software solutions. The R&D team will use Altair’s simulation, data analytics and other capabilities to optimize existing technology and develop new products.

These products mainly include solar trackers, which orient solar panels to face sunlight, and related parts, equipment, and technology. These projects reportedly align with Altair’s commitment to developing and improving sustainable methods of energy generation and help Soltec reinforce its role in the international solar market.

“Altair’s technology offering is a massive boost for us, and we are especially excited to take advantage of the Altair Units licensing system, which is one of a kind,” says Ignacio Melón Menéndez, general manager, Soltec Innovations. “It will give us seamless access to any solution we will need, the flexibility to run software anywhere, and unparalleled value that maximizes use and minimizes cost.”
