Nextracker contracts for 10 GW of annual manufacturing capacity in India


Nextracker, a US-based specialist in intelligent solar tracker and software solutions, has contracted for 10 GW per annum of manufacturing capacity in India.

Nextracker produces its solar tracker systems with over 80% domestic content for utility-scale power generation projects in India. The company has collaborated with eleven manufacturing suppliers with thirteen factories located across the country. “With this strategic undertaking, Nextracker is not only accelerating project execution timelines but also ensuring energy supply security, lower costs, local jobs, and economic development,” stated Nextracker.

Dan Shugar, Nextracker founder and CEO, said the company has over five gigawatts of systems under fulfilment or operational.

Nextracker’s flagship products include NX Horizon for flat terrains and NX Horizon-XTR for large scale PV projects deployed on sloping ground. NX Horizon-XTR allows for row flexibility and ground following without the added complexity and technological risk of articulated joints.

The Horizon-XTR, according to the manufacturer, is designed to follow the natural contours of the existing ground and does not need to be installed in a single plane, reducing the length of foundation piles and minimizing grading.

Nextracker has over 200 staff at its Hyderabad office, which is engaged in R&D, engineering, manufacturing, after-sales support, etc. Some of its prominent customers include EPC companies such as Sterling and Wilson Renewable Energy, Amara Raja Infra Private Limited, and Rays Power Infra, as well as established developers such as NTPC.
