- Array DuraTrack® solar trackers to be installed at one of the largest solar energy projects in the U.S.
- Project raises Array’s profile in growing Midwest U.S. market and solidifies its global leadership position as a renewable energy solutions partner
- Array’s domestic and agile supply chain facilitates on-time deliveries and project schedules
PVTIME – Array Technologies, Inc. (“Array”) (NASDAQ: ARRY), one of the world’s largest providers of utility-scale solar tracking technology, has been awarded a contract to supply its DuraTrack® solar trackers for EDF Renewables North America, one of the largest renewable energy developers in North America.
Array will supply its DuraTrack® solar trackers to an over 750 megawatt (MWdc) Ohio project on nearly 4,500 acres of land. The project will be equipped with over 1.4 million modules across more than 13,000 tracker rows. The project is expected to be one of the largest U.S. solar projects and capable of producing enough clean energy to power 116,000 average Ohio homes a year.
“By winning this project, Array is further solidifying its position as a leader in the utility-scale solar industry and demonstrating our ability to consistently deliver quality products on time for our customers,” said Kevin Hostetler, CEO of Array Technologies. “This project is a win-win-win for the county in Ohio, delivering clean energy into the local power grid, providing hundreds of new construction jobs, and generating a revenue stream from the lease agreements and tax revenue all while boosting economic development in the area and serving as a STEM resource for students interested in science, sustainability and environmental learning.”
EDF Renewables North America Vice President of Solar & Storage Strategic Procurement, Art Del Rio, stated, “This supply agreement is the latest between EDF Renewables and Array. The strength of this deeply established partnership with Array and EDF Renewables continues to grow with the execution of another tracker supply agreement for leading technology.”
The project is expected to be operational in 2024, with Array initiating tracker deliveries in January 2023. The project’s engineering, procurement and construction is being overseen by Blattner Energy, a member of the Quanta Services family. Blattner is a diversified renewable energy engineering contractor providing leading expertise and collaborative construction solutions nationwide. The project is being developed by independent power producer EDF Renewables.
