Nextracker hits 10 GW milestone in Middle East, Africa, and India solar power markets


Nextracker, a global provider of intelligent solar tracker and software solutions, today announced it has surpassed the milestone of 10 GW of smart solar trackers either operational or under fulfillment for projects located in the Middle East, Africa, and India. It achieved this milestone after securing significant orders in the region.

Dan Shugar, Nextracker founder and CEO, said, “This is a region marked by a wide range of energy transition needs and opportunities, and we’re proud to have reached this significant milestone. We continue to invest in these markets with sales, engineering, and professional services teams to better serve our customers throughout the entire solar project lifecycle. The company is laser-focused on anticipating our customers’ needs and delivering the industry’s most reliable solar tracker and software solutions with unmatched wind design engineering and proven performance.”

With these markets representing a high growth potential for utility-scale solar, Nextracker ramped its domestic content and manufacturing program in the Middle East and India, engaging local partners to provide steel and critical components for its solar trackers across the region.

Nextracker’s integrated solar tracker and software systems are currently operating on many landmark solar power projects across the region.

In Saudi Arabia, Sudair and Sakaka Solar Park projects with ACWA Power and its partners leveraged local manufacturing in KSA for critical steel components. This is also contributing to the ongoing growth of Nextracker’s steel exports throughout the region.

In United Arab Emirates, Phase V of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park project with Shanghai Electric and ACWA Power provides over one gigawatt of power for Dubai.

In India, Nextracker is providing its solar tracker systems for projects in Karnataka, Gujarat, and Rajasthan in collaboration with EPC companies such as Sterling and Wilson Renewable Energy, Amara Raja Infra, and Rays Power Infra, as well as developers such as NTPC and Serentica Renewables. With its second largest office in Hyderabad and over two hundred dedicated employees, Nextracker has established strategic partnerships with 11 manufacturing suppliers and 13 factories to provide over 80% domestic content for utility-scale solar projects across the country.

Nextracker systems are also operating on over one gigawatt of key solar projects across Africa, a geographical market with high irradiance levels and increasingly favorable clean energy policies.

Hinde Liepmannsohn, executive director of Middle East Solar Industry Association, said, “Nextracker, a long-standing MESIA Member (Middle East Solar Industry Association), has demonstrated its commitment to serve as a high-value strategic partner to the major development entities responsible for the region’s most important utility-scale renewable energy projects. From onsite project management and engineering support to systems designed for fast, easy installation with advanced software, technology, and robotic cleaning to optimize energy production, the Nextracker team continues to demonstrate the ability to bring measurable value and impact across the lifecycle of these mega clean-energy projects.”
