Nextracker has signed a tracker supply deal with Sterling and Wilson Renewable Energy for NTPC Renewable Energy’s 1.568 GW (DC) solar PV project in the Indian state of Gujarat. Sterling and Wilson Renewable Energy, an end-to-end renewable engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) solutions provider, is executing this PV project at Khavda RE Park using Nextracker’s optimized bifacial solar tracker for additional energy gain.
India is seeing an upward trend in the adoption of solar trackers combined with bifacial module technology. Nextracker will supply its solar tracker technology with 75% of the system components manufactured in the country using locally made steel from factories in Gujarat.
The project is slated to be operational by June 2024.
Nextracker has 5 GW per year of manufacturing capacity in India and is operating 25 projects across the nation. The Khavda project expands its gigawatt portfolio in India.

It also has an operation and maintenance (O&M) portfolio of around 7 GWp solar power projects, including projects constructed by third parties.
