Fremont, Calif.-based single-axis solar tracker manufacturer NEXTracker Inc. has entered into a 400 MW multiyear supply agreement with PES Engineers Private Ltd., a renewable power engineering and construction firm based in India.
Over the next three years, NEXTracker and PES will deliver trackers and installation services to major construction projects throughout the Indian market. The first project under the agreement will ship in September to central India.Â
‘After reviewing favorable third-party evaluations of NEXTracker's technology, we found the self-powered tracker to be ideal for maximizing the energy production potential of solar sites throughout India," says Vasudeva Prasad, managing director of PES.
"Its independent row architecture and self-powered design will help us deploy more photovoltaics to a wider variety of sites in less time – for less cost. We will also benefit from NEXTracker's core competencies, including system design, commissioning, and [operations and maintenance] support,’ Prasad says.
