PES Engineers Private Limited (PES) plans to develop solar PV projects in India, and has signed a multi-year supply agreement with NEXTracker for the company’s solar trackers. The first project under the agreement will be started construction next month and NEXTracker will deliver its products to central India, where the project will locate.
Self-powered solar trackers are a method for maximizing energy production potential for solar sites, and NEXTracker has been recognized as a global tracker supplier with proven services and product quality. “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 O&M support," commented Vasudeva Prasad, Managing Director of PES.
So far, PES has offered 23GW of energy-related EPC services globally, and is entering into the next generation technologies. Its partnership with NEXTracker represents its commitment to maximizing the profitability of solar power projects in India – one of the most potential markets in the world.
The Indian government aims to install up to 100GW of solar by 2022. NEXTracker's unimpeded, unlinked rows provide greater layout flexibility on a wide range of sites, as well as significantly lower operations and maintenance costs. With rapid construction time resulting in a faster project completion, and higher energy yield, NEXTracker helps EPCs deliver more profit and reliability to system owners. This technology, coupled with PES' extensive experience in delivering turnkey energy infrastructure solutions, will create a considerable force for deployment of solar in India.
