  • Arctech will certainly supply its remedies to the 312 MW solar energy project which is the biggest in Central Asian nation.
  • It will be supplying SkyLine II solar tracker system.

Chinese solar tracking and also racking remedy provider, Arctech has actually announced that it has actually won a 312 MW project supplying SkyLine II solar tracker in Azerbaijan. The solar power project is additionally the largest solar project in the Central Asian country, according to an Arctech release.

In order to successfully manage the complicated setting, Arctech has applied low-alloy architectural steel. SkyLine II adopts H-shaped steel with a sophisticated level of rigidity, and the steel used has actually been used with hot-dip galvanized, pre-galvanized, as well as other anti-corrosive therapies, making sure that the product can satisfy the requirements of C3 or C4 anti-corrosion requirement throughout the entire service life of 25 years, said Arctech.

SkyLine II is a flagship product. Arctech pointed out that the initial 1P (one-in-portrait) tracker designed with a pentagonal torque tube and also concurrent multi-point drive mechanism makes it possible for a brand-new possibility of developing the plant utilizing trackers with the same stack setups, getting rid of the unpredictability dealt with in the beginning of plant style as well as building and construction.

Arctech stated that the concurrent multi-point drive device modern technology rigidifies the tracker to the point of allowing 0deg wind stow setting, hence lowering the difference of wind pressure and post loads between the outside and also interior of the PV plant. By doing so, Skyline II allows a new possibility of designing the plant making use of trackers with similar pile arrangements, overcoming the uncertainty dealt with in the beginning of plant design as well as building and construction.

The Solar Power Project

As the most significant solar project in the country covering 550 hectares, the project lies in the Southwest of Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, as well as 12 km away from the coastal line which requires C3/C4 anti-corrosion level tracking equipment. Arctech says that the project's typical projected annual electrical energy generation is 500 million kw/h.

According to a report released by the German-Azerbaijani Chamber of Commerce, the possible contribution of solar power in Azerbaijan stands at an overall of 8,000 MW. It wants to lower co2 emissions by 40 percent by 2050.

In India, Arctech had actually opened up a 3-GW solar tracker making unit in mid-2022 in Mundra, Gujarat where all components of its solar tracker would certainly be generated.
