Arctech will participate at Renewable Energy India 2022 in India Expo Centre, Great Nolda, showcasing its portfolio of products to more than 700+ Exhibitors, 40,000+ trade visitors to the exhibition.
Participating in the show for the sixth time, Arctech will display its star SkyLine II, the new-generation rigid horizontal single-axis tracker with an independent row and 1P architecture.
Unlike the traditional flexible trackers that rotate excessively during wind events and have to be stowed at steep angles, the very stiff Skyline II safely stows at 0 deg without torsional distortion. The design allows the solar tracker for the highest stability at all tracking tilts. Additionally, the unique design with many fixed points generates independent “construction blocks”, enabling the most versatile modularity to accommodate all panel sizes and the number of strings per tracker. Moreover, Skyline II only triggers wind stows at 22m/s, which leads to up to 2% more energy yield per year, hence a lower LCOE. These advantages, together with its structure, make SkyLine II one of the best trackers in terms of financial performance and environmental adaptability.
In June, the company just launched a new SkyLine II promotional video showcasing how Skyline II enables a new possibility of designing the plant using trackers with identical pile configuration, overcoming the uncertainty faced in the early stage of plant design and construction which occurs frequently in India.
Arctech’s rigid tracker SkyLine II with synchronous multi-point drive mechanism now offers a new solution of certainty. The synchronous multi-point drive mechanism technology rigidifies the tracker to the point of enabling 0deg wind stow mode, hence reducing the difference of wind pressure and post loads between the exterior and interior of the PV plant. By doing so, Skyline II enables a new possibility of designing the plant using trackers with identical pile configuration, overcoming the uncertainty faced in the early stage of plant design and construction. There are no other ways for traditional trackers to achieve the same outcome and solve the problem without dismantling and replacing all trackers in the affected areas.
Recently, Arctech announced the inauguration of its first joint venture manufacturing base, Jash Energy in Mundra, India. The manufacturing base with a 3 GW annual capacity is the first manufacturing base dedicated to solar trackers in the country, allowing producing all major components for its solar tracker products.
The company also celebrated its historical shipment momentum in the region reaching 3.5GW recently. According to Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables, Arctech holds the No. 1 position for solar trackers in India in 2020 and a 45% market share in 2021.
