Nextracker to supply solar trackers for 306 MWp Nokh PV plant

Share

Nextracker has signed an agreement with Amara Raja Power Systems to deliver its bifacial-optimized solar trackers for NTPC’s Nokh solar project in the Indian state of Rajasthan.

Amara Raja is executing this 306 MWp ground-mounted utility-scale power plant spread over 1,850 hectares (the equivalent of 3,500 contiguous football fields) on an EPC basis.

The announcement follows the upward trend for the deployment of solar trackers combined with bifacial module technology in India due to falling module prices and increased tracker design efficiencies.

“Nextracker is the right local partner to help us achieve lower levelized cost of energy (LCOE) over the lifetime of the plant due to its bifacial optimized design,” said Dwarakanadha Reddy, business head-projects division, Amara Raja Power Systems.

Nextracker has a gigawatt of solar tracker systems operating on 24 projects across India and close to 200 local staff to support design and engineering, local content and manufacturing, sales, and aftermarket services.

With the first lot of Nextracker shipments to arrive in Q1 of 2023, the Nokh project is expected to become operational by October 2023.
