PVTIME – Arctech Solar, a leading solar tracking and racking system provider, has been ranked No. 1 PV tracker supplier in Asia Pacific for two consecutive years, according to Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables. Since entering the Australian market in 2017, Arctech has delivered 7 projects in Australia with a total of 550MW commissioned and 600MW under fulfillment. Arctech’s success in this region is due to its proven high-quality, reliable products and exceptional service.
Footprint in Australia
Arctech continues to expand its presence locally, setting up a service office in Sydney to support every stage of a project including project design, product engineering, sales, project management and field supports.
One milestone that demonstrates Arctech’s proven execution, delivery capability, and the rapidly growing adaption of Arctech’s solar tracker in Australia is Merredin 132mw project, located near Perth, recognized as the largest PV project in Western Australia to date. The complicated landforms pose strict requirement for solar trackers. Arctech ‘s SkyLine was equipped to this project due to its advantages of strong terrain arability, easy installation and strong wind-resistance capability.
Arctech adjusted the production plan and resolved delivery issues for an extremely tight delivery schedule. This plant can generate 274GWh annually, which is enough to power an estimated 42,000 homes according to the project developer.
Supporting ‘A Clean Recovery’
As a member of Australia’s Clean Energy Council (CEC), Arctech has been dedicating all efforts to its ‘A Clean Recovery’, which aims to lead Australia’s economic recovery from COVID-19 with accelerated investment in renewable energy.
As such, Arctech will hold a webinar “Maximising Solar Return with Advanced Modules and Trackers” on 9th June to better serve local investors, developers, EPCs, and installers. It will showcase a unique Demo Project in Melbourne, which allows to not only directly compare 1P and 2P combinations, but also to provide an accurate comparison of the energy yield and economic evaluation. The site will also serve as a hands-on training location with a 4-module mini tracker for installation practice
“In the context of severe challenges in the global PV market, A Clean Recovery will undoubtedly carry a new impetus to the Australian PV market,” said Mr. Guy Rong, the president of Arctech’s global business. “Since the capacity of Arctech has been fully recovered, we will continue to make effort to the development of this plan by providing high quality, innovative products, and exceptional service for Australia renewable energy market.”
