L&T selects PVH solar trackers for 2.97 GWp PV plant in Saudi Arabia


Spain-headquartered PVH has signed a solar tracker supply contract with Larsen & Toubro (L&T) for the 2.97 GWp PV plant of the world’s largest hydrogen plant powered entirely by renewable energy. 

The mega plant is located at Oxagon, in Saudi Arabia’s NEOM region. 

NEOM Green Hydrogen Co. (NGHC)—a joint venture between ACWA Power, Air Products, and NEOM— is setting up the green hydrogen production facility with a total investment of $8.4 billion. The generated hydrogen will be exported to global markets in the form of green ammonia.

NGHC will produce carbon-free hydrogen using wind and solar power to produce up to 600 tonnes per day of carbon-free hydrogen by the end of 2026. This project marks a significant milestone in advancing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s 2030 Vision for a clean and sustainable energy future.

Larsen & Toubro was awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract to construct a 2.2 GW AC PV plant, a 1.65 GW wind generation balance plant, and a 400 MWh battery energy storage system under the power elements package. It will also construct three 380 kV switching stations, 306 km of 380 kV overhead lines, and underground cables required for the Kingdom’s grid network.

All trackers for this solar project will be sourced from PVH’s recently renovated manufacturing facility in Jeddah, which has an annual capacity of 8 GWp. 

Founded in 2011, PVH has supplied more than 28 GW to photovoltaic plants operating in various countries around the world. It is purportedly the world’s third-largest supplier of solar trackers and structures.
