Arctech Solar to supply solar trackers to Oman’s solar power plant

36193423422 7e71c9c9f4 zArctech Solar, a China-based solar tracking and racking system provider, has announced that it will supply 125MW of solar trackers to a solar power plant in Oman

Located in the southern city of Amin, the plant will be commissioned by the end of 2019 and will power the internal operations of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) by using Arctech’s SkySmart tracking system.

Guy Rong, president of Arctech Solar’s international business, said, “We are delighted to make an effort to this landmark solar project in Oman. We will remain committed to providing efficient solar tracking and racking systems in support of the Middle East’s rapid development and potential for renewable energy.”

The manufacturer claims that the PDO’s solar plant marks the first of its kind in Oman and the world’s first utility-scale solar project with an oil and gas company. It is also being considered as the single-largest tracking system project with bifacial modules in the Middle East to date.

Arctech stated that the structural design of its SkySmart tracking system can reduce the module backside standing and that its factory pre-assembly can be deployed in the project to offer higher energy output while reducing the labour cost associated with the field installation.

The plant will be Arctech’s second Middle East project following a solar power plant project in Saudi Arabia and is part of the ongoing internationalisation strategy of the manufacturer.

In addition to supplying trackers for the plant, Arctech aims to accelerate its global presence in 2019 and beyond.
