Director Global Engineering and R&D, Arctech
Pedro Magalhães started his PV career in Madrid, Spain, back in 2003, designing and engineering trackers for Concentration PV. When PV was transitioning from the laboratory to a mass industry, Pedro moved to the USA and had the opportunity to deploy tracker solutions in the ever-growing PV market. His career spans over several facets of the industry, from product development of PV components, plant engineering to business development of EPC services. Pedro has a deep understanding of PV tracker technology and what it takes to design a reliable product that will last for decades out in the field. His first tracker specific wind tunnel test was done together with CPP in 2009. Pedro published several tracker specific scientific papers and co-authored the trackers chapter of the CPV Handbook by Wiley.
