GameChange Solar, a global leader in fixed-tilt structures and trackers, has announced the completion of its first Genius Tracker project in India. It supplied its single-axis Genius tracker equipment to a 394 MW PV project developed by Tata Power in Gujarat. The project is located 110 km from the Ahmedabad district. The solar plant is expected to generate an amount of electricity enough to power around 376,000 households.
This is the largest solar project utilizing single-axis trackers in India. GameChange Solar’s Genius Tracker 1P was selected for the Tata Power project as it is designed specifically for challenging ground conditions and high wind speeds as experienced in the project area.
“The project, which was only partially constructed at the time, withstood the Tauktae cyclone when it hit in May of 2021. This was the strongest cyclone to strike Gujarat since 1998 and had wind speeds over 160 km/h and uprooted trees and electricity poles. Due to the quality engineering and construction of the Genius Tracker, no damage was caused to the portion of the facility installed at that time,” read a statement by GameChange Solar.
More than 20% of the materials for the Genius Tracker were sourced from within India. Going further, GameChange Solar targets local sourcing of more than 50% of the parts for its systems on all future projects in India.
Vikas Bansal, Chief Operating Officer, International for GameChange Solar, said their company looks forward to bringing the cutting-edge Genius Tracker technology to more projects in India.
