Voyager is a next generation, single-axis tracker that provides 
industry-leading ease of installation, performance, and reliability, driving 
the lowest total installed cost.  The FTC team that brings the Voyager tracker 
to market does so with the experience of designing and installing GWs of 
third-party single-axis tracker projects in addition to delivering over 1 GW of 
FTC Solar's AP90 tracker.

The Voyager tracker is designed with an architecture that requires the fewest 
posts/module, the least DC cabling, and among the most efficient installation 
processes in the industry. And, the single row, 2-portrait module mounting 
architecture allows engineers to make the most of the available land while 
maintaining suitable accessibility for cleaning and mowing in higher GCR

installed cost per watt in the industry.
