China’s Arctech has signed 662 MW of tracker supply deals for solar projects in India. The company bagged the latest contracts from Sterling & Wilson and Torrent Power following a 2.8 GW mega project last year.
The 242 MW project with Sterling & Wilson is located in Rajasthan, where the company completed the shipment of 1.7 GW of 1P SkyLine trackers by 2021. This deal marks Arctech’s third project with Sterling & Wilson after the cumulative portfolio of 191 MW in the MENA area.
Arctech landed the other 420 MW project with Torrent Power. The project is located in Surel, India.
Arctech will supply its SkyLine II solar trackers for both projects.
“SkyLine II is a flagship product with a peculiar edge in the Indian market. The first 1P (one-in-portrait) tracker designed with a synchronous multi-point drive mechanism enables a new possibility of designing the plant using trackers with identical pile configurations, overcoming the uncertainty faced in the early stage of plant design and construction,” stated Arctech.
“The synchronous multi-point drive mechanism technology rigidifies the tracker to the point of enabling 0-deg wind stow mode, hence reducing the difference of wind pressure and post loads between the exterior and interior of the PV plant. By doing so, Skyline II enables a new possibility of designing the plant using trackers with identical pile configurations, overcoming the uncertainty faced in the early stage of plant design and construction.”
In August 2022, Arctech opened its first joint venture manufacturing base, Jash Energy, in Mundra, Gujarat. Jash has an annual production capacity of 3 GW and can produce all major components for its solar tracker products.
