PVH to supply trackers for L&T’s 805 MW solar project in Saudi Arabia


Spain-headquartered PV Hardware (PVH) has signed a contract with Larsen & Toubro (L&T) to supply solar trackers for an 805 MW DC PV project in Saudi Arabia.

The project will be located in Saudi Arabia Qassim province near Ar Rass city. It is part of the National Renewable Energy Program and is overseen by the Kingdom’s Ministry of Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources (MEIM) as a strategic initiative under Saudi Vision 2030.

“Ar Rass is an important milestone in PVH’s trajectory in Saudi Arabia,” said Surmai Kaushik, VP Sales, AMEA at PVH. “In large projects like this we showcase the strength that local manufacturing and expertise of working in extremely harsh environments brings to our products and onsite services. We have worked very hard to ensure that our product showcases the most optimized design working alongside the EPC to lower the LCOE while maximizing the local content.”

All trackers for the Ar Rass solar project will be supplied from PVH’s recently renovated manufacturing facility in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The trackers are designed to withstand high temperatures and sandstorms while the advanced safety features will ensure its stable operation and corrosion resistance with an estimated life of 25 years, stated PVH.

PVH has deployed trackers for over 28 GW of PV capacity across five continents, holding a global market share of more than 10%.
