Array to supply 1GW single-axis trackers to Gemini solar and storage project in Nevada
- United States solar tracker distributor Array Technologies will supply 1GW of its DuraTrack HZ v3 single-axis solar trackers to solar designer Primergy Solar's solar and storage Gemini project in Nevada, USA.
Distributions will begin during Q2 2022, with the project readied to be finished by the end of 2023. Power will certainly be supplied to utility Nevada Energy through a 25-year power acquisition arrangement (PPA).
The project, estimated to set you back greater than US$ 1 billion, will certainly be able to save greater than 1.4 GWh of solar power and will certainly allow the PV plant to discharge energy throughout high demand and when solar energy availability is scarce.
Travis Rose, primary income policeman at Array Technologies, said: "Project Gemini is historic for its dimension and also scale, and we are well-positioned to enhance it for maximum energy generation while restricting installation time, LCOE and also upkeep needs."
Gemini's project will certainly use an energy monitoring system (EMS) that will identify the optimal price of releasing the energy to the grid either from the battery or straight from the photovoltaic panels, and also will do so by incorporating day-to-day data.
Kiewit has been picked as the design, purchase and also construction business for the project.
Earlier this year, Array completed its acquisition of Spanish tracker STI Norland which will aid the American company to expand its markets in Europe and Brazil among others.
