Arctech to Deliver 662 MW of SkyLine II
1P Trackers for Two Indian Projects
Arctech, a global pioneer in solar tracking, racking, and BIPV solutions, has reached an important milestone. Following the successful completion of a 2.8 GW mega project last year, the business will deploy 662 MW of its SkyLine II solar tracking solution for two major projects in India.
One of the projects, a 242 MW venture in Rajasthan, is a collaboration with Sterling & Wilson. In 2021, Arctech produced 1.7 GW of 1P SkyLine trackers. Rajasthan had a historical renewable energy capacity of more than 19 GW by the end of 2022.
The latest projects are Arctech and Sterling & Wilson’s third collaboration, adding to their total capacity of 191 MW in the MENA region. During the May SNEC PV POWER EXPO.
Arctech announced a 420 MW SkyLine II project with Torrent Power in Surel, India.
Arctech’s commitment to local content and service meshes with the rising need for renewable energy in India. The company will inaugurate its joint venture production base, Jash Energy, in Mundra in August 2022. Jash Energy, with an annual capacity of 3 GW, can manufacture all essential components for Arctech’s solar tracker products.
Skyline II is a flagship product that is specifically positioned for the Indian market. Its revolutionary 1P tracker design, which incorporates a synchronized multi-point drive mechanism, opens up new avenues for plant design when using trackers with identical pile topologies. It eliminates uncertainty in the early stages of plant construction. The ability of the technology to enable a 0deg wind stow mode reduces pressure and post-load variances inside the PV plant.
These achievements solidify Arctech’s position in the Indian solar industry.
Speaking about the development, Gail Chen, GM of EAI at Arctech remarked, ” Arctech will continue to operate, develop and deeply cultivate local supply chain in the Indian market, optimizing efficiency and reducing the cost of solar projects to proactively respond to the Indian Government’s Mission 500GW by 2030.”
