Arctech, a China-based solar tracking and racking solutions provider, has commissioned over 6.2 GW of solar trackers in India since it entered into the local market in 2015. Some of the giga-scale orders bagged by the company include a 1.7 GW project in 2020 and a 2.8 GW project in 2022.
The company started local production in August 2022 through a joint venture called Jash Energy. Situated in Mundra, Gujarat, which is home to the largest private port in India, Jash Energy has an annual capacity of 3 GW and enjoys convenient access to Western, Middle Eastern, and African markets. The factory has achieved self-sufficiency by locally sourcing steel for manufacturing all key components of Arctech’s solar trackers.
According to Wood Mackenzie, Arctech was India’s largest supplier of solar trackers in 2020 and held a 45% market share in 2021. “Despite the challenging circumstances posed by COVID-19, Arctech completed the shipment of 1.7 GW of 1P SkyLine trackers in Rajasthan during this period,” said the company.
SkyLine II is a 1P (one-in-portrait) tracker designed with a pentagonal torque tube and synchronous multi-point drive mechanism. This 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.
